Easy Chocolate Mousse

This is one of those things I can make practically anytime – I seem to always have these ingredients on-hand. Top it with your favorite seasonal fruit or whipped cream for an even more indulgent treat. Enjoy!

Easy Chocolate Mousse
Slightly adapted from Everyday Food, Dec 2013
Serves 4

1 1/4 cups semisweet-chocolate chips
3 tablespoons sugar
Fine salt
2/3 cup 2% milk
3 large egg whites

In a blender, combine chocolate, sugar, and pinch of salt. In
a small saucepan, bring milk to a simmer, then transfer to
blender. Let stand 1 minute. Blend on high until smooth, 1

on high until well combined, 1 minute. Divide evenly among
four 6-ounce dessert cups. Chill until just set, 6 hours or up
to overnight.
