Vegan Chocolate Mousse

This is my second time making this decadent dessert and I have a feeling that Kevin will be requesting it all winter long - and we're talking about a Michigan winter.  Luckily it only takes 3-5 minutes to make, but that will be our little secret!

Vegan Chocolate Mousse  (from Jazzy Vegetarian on PBS)

3.5 oz.             Dark Chocolate bar  (I bought from Trader Joe’s), or Dark cooking chocolate
1     cup           Rice, Almond or Soy Milk  (I used Almond)
¼    t.               Chili powder
¼    t.               Cinnamon
1     T.              Maple Syrup
¼    t.               Vanilla Extract

Break chocolate bar into pieces and put in a blender.  Heat almond milk in small saucepan – just to a simmer.  Pour hot almond milk on top of chocolate in blender.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend.  Pour into pretty bowl and chill.  Should set in 3-4 hours.
