  • 12 oz Bittersweet Chocolate
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 large, ripe Hass avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 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 wine glasses and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or covered overnight.
