Heat 3/4 cup cream in a 1 - quart heavy saucepan until hot. Whisk together yolks, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a metal bowl until combined well, then add hot cream in a slow stream, whisking until combined. Tranfer mixture to saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, until it registers 160 degrees on instant-read thermometer. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl an stir in vanilla.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring frequently. Whisk custard into chocolate until smooth, then cool.

Spoon mousse into 8 (6 ounce) stemmed glasses or ramekins and chill covered, at least 6 hours. Serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream.
