Chocolate Amaretto Mousse

MMMMMMMMMM Have I mentioned before that I love chocolate? This one is
OH SO EASY and was OH SO MUCH FUN developing. (Ever notice that with
chocolate even the misses taste good?)

Chocolate Amaretto Mousse (Almost Level 1)

6 oz sugar free semi sweet chocolate chopped into pieces
1 cup heavy cream
1 large egg
2 tablespoons sugar free Amaretto syrup (I use DaVinci)

Heat the cream in a small sauce pan over medium/medium high heat to a
simmer. Pour hot cream into blender, add all the other ingredients and
whip until it is smooth. Spoon the chocolate mixture into individual
serving dishes (ramekins, wine glasses, sorbet cups) and chill for at
least 2 hours until they are set.

Serve straight from the fridge.

*If you do not have the Amaretto syrup, you can substitute 1 teaspoon
almond extract
**I have used many different flavored syrups in this concoction with
great success.
***You can use sugar free dark chocolate in place of the semi sweet.
