Nana's 3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup water
5 fresh egg yolks, slightly beaten
7 fresh egg whites

Melt the chocolate chips and water in a heat proof bowl over simmering water on the stove.
When melted, remove from the heat and beat until smooth. Allow to cool.
When the chocolate mixture is cool, whisk in the egg yolks.
In a mixer, whip the egg whites and salt until stiff peaks start to form.
Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites until it is mixed well.
Spoon the chocolate mousse into into your serving dishes.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate before serving.
