Step 8: Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours before indulging 0r 30 minutes in a freezer should be enough too. For garnish, if you're feeling fancy, whip up 2 tbsp of heavy cream, making it almost foamy or peaked, as per your liking. Add the cherries for the freshness, to cut off the richness of the cream and bitterness of the chocolate. If that's not enough chocolate for you, sprinkle some cocoa powder for that extra bitterness. Viola! The chocolate mousse is ready.

Note: This recipe does not include sugar but if you like it sweet, you can either use milk chocolate or add a tbsp or two of castor sugar while whipping the cream in step 4.
