Easy Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

I made the most delicious dessert this afternoon.

It's based on a chocolate mousse recipe that I found on Tasteholics.  They are really good at simplifying recipes down to just a handful of ingredients and only a few steps.

This mousse uses cream cheese as its base rather than eggs.  

This cuts down on cooking time, since you don't have to thicken the mousse on the stove.  You just melt a chocolate chips with some cream, and then whip the mixture up with cream cheese, sweetener, and cocoa powder.  Add a dollop of whipped cream and you're done.  You've got a decadent chocolate dessert with only 7g net carbs.  

But enough about chocolate mousse, its' time for me to sashay away.
