Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat. Bring it just to a simmer, but do not let it boil.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the chopped dark chocolate. Let it sit for a minute to melt.
  3. 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.
  4. Add the powdered erythritol or sweetener of your choice. Stir well until the sweetener is dissolved.
  5. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl or individual serving glasses.
  7. Cover the bowl or glasses with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic touches the surface of the mousse to prevent a skin from forming.
  8. Place the mousse in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until it is fully set and chilled.
  9. Once chilled, remove from the refrigerator and garnish with whipped cream and grated dark chocolate, if desired.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
