Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

Serves: 4 (1/2 cup each)
Carbs Per Serving: 5 Grams Carbs
Prep Time: About 15 active time, 1 hr chill time
Effort: Easy

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 eggs, separated
2 cups half and half divided
5 packets sugar substitute
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

How to Prepare:

In medium-size saucepan, mix gelatin and cocoa. In separate bowl, beat egg yolks with 1 cup half and half. Blend into gelatin mixture. Let stand 1 minute to soften gelatin. Stir over low heat until gelatin is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes.  Add remaining half and half, sweetener and vanilla. Pour into large bowl and chill, stirring occasionally, until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from spoon.

In separate large bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually add gelatin mixture and beat until doubled in volume, about 5 minutes. Chill until mixture is slightly thickened. Turn into dessert dishes or 1-quart bowl and chill until set.
