"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
1. Cut the chocolate in 1/2 in. pieces and place in a small saucepan. Set the pan into a skillet containing hot but not boiling water. Let melt over low heat, stirring occasionally. 2. Meanwhile, put egg yolks in a heavy saucepan and add the water. Over very low heat, beat vigorously with a wire whisk. A heat-diffuser an be useful here ensuring that the egg yolks do not cook. Beat the yolks until they thicken: the finished consistency should be that of a thin custard. 3. Remove the egg yolks from the heat and ad to the melted chocolate, stirring to blend thoroughly with a rubber spatula. Let cool briefly. 4. Whip the cream until stiff, adding 2 tbsp of the sugar toward the end of the whipping. Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture. 5. Using an electric mixture, beat the egg whites at medium speed until soft peaks start to form. Beat in the remaining sugar., 1 tbsp at a time, and cdontinue beating, at high speed, until stiff. Be careful not to overbeat, which will cause the whites to break down. 6. Fold the whites into the chocolate mixture quickly and thoroughly, using a rubber spatula and turning the bowl all the while. 7. Spoon the mousse into individual serving glasses and chill. Just before serving garnish with whipped cream.
