Who wouldn't want to celebrate National Chocolate Mousse Day? Well that's what today is, so I've put together a ROUND-UP  below of some of a few Chocolate Mousse recipes I've posted. And in honor of the day, I'm posting a 'healthy' chocolate mousse recipe for Avocado Chocolate Mousse. It's really delicious and simple to make! 

Avocado Chocolate Mousse
From The 10 Things You Need to Eat: And More Than 100 Easy and Delicious Ways to Prepare Them

12 oz. good quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
1 large, ripe Hass avocado, pitted and peeled
3/4 cup light brown sugar
6 egg whites

Melt the chocolate with the cinnamon and chili powder in a double boiler over hot water and set aside. Purée the avocado and brown sugar in a food processor until smooth. With the machine running, pour in the chocolate mixture. Using a stand mixer or whisk, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites. Pour the mousse into 6 small serving bowls or wineglasses and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or covered overnight.
