EASY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 tbsps cold water
1/4 cup boiling water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups cold whipping cream
2 tsps vanilla extract
Fresh berries for garnish, if desired

In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water. Let mixture stand 2 minutes to soften. Add boiling water; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved and mixture is clear. Cool slightly.

In a large bowl, mix sugar and cocoa. Add whipping cream and vanilla to the mixture. Beat at medium speed, scraping bottom of bowl occasionally, until mixture is stiff. Pour in the gelatin mixture and beat until well blended. Spoon mousse into dessert dishes. Refrigerate about 30 minutes. Garnish with fresh berries before serving, if desired.
