- 1 cup heavy cream
- 4 oz dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids), chopped
- 2 tablespoons powdered erythritol or any keto-approved sweetener
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Whipped cream and grated dark chocolate, for garnish (optional)
- In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat. Bring it just to a simmer, but do not let it boil.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the chopped dark chocolate. Let it sit for a minute to melt.
- Stir the mixture until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. If needed, gently heat the mixture over low heat to ensure the chocolate is fully melted.
- Add the powdered erythritol or sweetener of your choice. Stir well until the sweetener is dissolved.
- Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Pour the mixture into a medium bowl or individual serving glasses.
- Cover the bowl or glasses with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic touches the surface of the mousse to prevent a skin from forming.
- Place the mousse in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until it is fully set and chilled.
- Once chilled, remove from the refrigerator and garnish with whipped cream and grated dark chocolate, if desired.
- Serve and enjoy!
