    Ingredients:

    • 6 ounces high-quality dark chocolate with 70% cacao, finely chopped

    Directions:
    Place the chocolate into a medium heatproof bowl. 

    In a small heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring the milk just to a boil over medium heat. 

    Pour the hot milk over the chocolate, and let it sit for a couple of minutes. 

    Use a spatula or a wooden spoon to stir the mix until smooth. 

    In a small bowl, use a risk or fork to beat the Greek yogurt until smooth. 

    Fold the yogurt into the chocolate mixture using a spatula until thoroughly combined, then stir in the Grand Marnier. 

    Spoon the mousse into four small serving cups, cover with plastic wrap, and chill at least an hour, until firm. They can last up to a day in the refrigerator.

    Spoon a teaspoon of marmalade onto each cup and serve chilled.

    I recently rediscovered my love of all things mousse. It's something I've eaten from time to time in the past, but which never really lit up my food radar.
    That changed recently when I was served a heavenly chocolate mousse for dessert. Now, I'm not much of a chocolate fan, but the mousse was a knockout. Light, fluffy, and flavorful, with a luscious texture.
    I came away from that dinner thinking that I'd have to try my hand at making a strawberry version.
    This recipe was the result. It makes 6-8 servings of tasty, delicious mousse with big strawberry flavor.
    Ingredients:
    1½ pounds ripe strawberries, hulled ...
