  1. 1

    Set out a mixing bowl. Place the whipped topping in the refrigerator, so it can begin to thaw.

  2. 2

    Open one can of sweetened condensed milk or a can of low-fat sweetened condensed milk. Pour it into the mixing bowl.

  3. 3

    Open the package of chocolate and empty its contents into the bowl containing the condensed milk. Add 3/4 cup of cold water.

  4. 4

    Whisk the three ingredients together for two to three minutes or until well-blended. Cover and place the mixing bowl into the refrigerator to chill for 10 to 15 minutes.

  5. 5

    Take the bowl from the refrigerator. Add the whipped topping by folding it into the chocolate mixture until it is completely incorporated and there are no visible signs of the topping.

  6. 6

    Spoon the mixture into serving glasses, cups or glass bowls. Serve immediately or chill overnight.

  1. 1

    Place your serving dishes in the refrigerator to chill. Put the medium mixing bowl and beaters into the freezer for 15 minutes prior to use.

  2. 2

    Heat 1/4 cup of cream in the microwave until hot. Remove from the microwave.

  3. 3

    Add the chopped chocolate into the hot cream and whisk until the chocolate has melted and is smooth. Pour into a larger mixing bowl.

  4. 4

    Pour the remaining cream into the medium-sized bowl that has been chilled in the freezer. Beat with an electric mixer on high until soft peaks form.

  5. 5

    Add the whipped cream to the chocolate gradually, folding until the whipped cream is fully blended into the chocolate and no traces of cream are remaining.

  6. 6

    Place the mousse into glass serving dishes or bowls and place in the refrigerator to chill for two hours.
