Dark Chocolate Mousse With Candied Orange

In this video, Curtis Stone demonstrates that to prepare a fluffy chocolate mousse, you must wield your spoons and whisks with precision when thickening eggs, melting chocolate and eliminating lumps. (Don't worry -- it's much easier to make than it might seem.) His orange-flavored dark chocolate mousse is topped with a simple syrup and orange rind garnish, making it the perfect elegant dessert for a Valentine's Day celebration or other romantic evening.
