I love this chocolate mousse! It’s low calorie and so easy to make! I added a little espelette pepper to spicy things up.

1 c bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 c water
2 TBSP sugar
1/4 tsp instant espresso powder
3 large egg whites
2 tsp espelette pepper

Place chocolate in blender. Bring 3/4 c water, 2 TBSP sugar, and espresso powder to simmer in medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Pour over chocolate. Cover tightly; blend 5 seconds. Add egg whites and pepper. Cover tightly; blend on high 1 minute. Pour into 4 small bowls. Chill until firm, about 2 hours.

Serves 4.
