My favorite silver spoons make this simple and elegant dessert something special. Add fresh pansy blossoms and you have a beautiful and unique ending to any dining event. ~Amy

Silver Spoon Chocolate Mousse

6 oz dark or semisweet pieces
2 tbs butter
3 tbs water
1 cup heavy cream

Silver spoons
Fresh violets, pansies for garnish

Place chocolate, butter, and water in a small saucepan pan, and heat over medium heat until smooth. Set aside to cool.

Whip cream to stiff peaks. Take a small amount of cream and gently stir into chocolate to lighten. Carefully fold remaining cream into chocolate until no streaks remain. Refrigerate at least 2-3 hours to set.

To serve:
Scoop chocolate mousse with silver spoons. Place onto serving platter, marble or slate tile, sprinkle with fresh flowers and serve immediately or cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
