Cook the Book: The Very Best Chocolate Mousse

I once had an epic chocolate mousse craving and in my quest to satisfy it, ended up making a third of the recipe (due to dwindling egg supply) and using a giant pot to make and chill it in (due to temporary insanity). I ended up with a half-inch layer of chocolate mousse to scrape my spoon with. I don't know what I was thinking, but I blame it on the craving—it makes you crazy! Judging by the popularity of this chocolate mousse from Ten, which was apparently the most successful dessert at the Silver Palate store, there's a chance you'll go crazy from how good it is, not from trying to divide an egg into thirds. Sigh.
