Preparation

This can be served as a frozen mousse by pouring it into a decorative mold and freezing it for 6 hours. Or, it may be poured into individual cups and served as you would a Pot de Crme au Chocolate. It can also be served in chocolate cups found at Trader Joe's or in individuals serving dishes).

Combine sugar and water in small saucepan and boil for 3 minutes.

In food processor with metal blade in place, add cream to the beaker. Process uninterrupted until a very thick whipped cream forms, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl.

Without washing beaker, reinsert metal blade and add chocolate pieces. Process, turning on and off, for 15 to 20 seconds.

Continue processing and gradually pour in hot syrup, Baileys and egg yolks.

Using a spatula, scrape chocolate mixture over whipped cream and fold together.

Freeze or chill before serving.

Notes

Trader Joe's sells huge blocks of dark Belgium chocolate which can be used instead of milk chocolate

Trader Joe's also sells organic whip cream - organic milk products taste much better

I kept a small amount of the dark melted chocolate separate for decorating the top of the mousse.
