Summer wrap-up

I just couldn't move on without closure, even if it means I'm finishing up this post well into autumn. Here are the final (no baking allowed) ideas from my summer repertoire. This installment courtesy our family reunion in mid-August.

Chocolate Mousse
Our favorite chocolate mousse recipe-divine!
1 C Heavy cream
20 oz Chocolate chips
3 C Heavy cream
½ C Confectioners sugar
2 tsp Vanilla

1. Heat 1 C heavy cream until simmering
2. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Move into bowl
3. In separate bowl whip together 3 C heavy cream, conf sugar, and vanilla
4. Add 1/3 of whipped mixture to chocolate mixture, then fold in the rest and cool 4-6 hours
5. Serve with whipped cream
