This classic chocolate mousse is the perfect dessert for all chocolate lovers. A simple mix of HERSHEY'S Cocoa and gelatin results in this rich and smooth dessert. It's perfect for paring with fresh fruit, whipped creme, or even more chocolate.
Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in small bowl; let stand 1 minute to soften. Add boiling water; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved and mixture is clear. Cool slightly.
Stir together sugar and cocoa in medium bowl; add whipping cream and vanilla. Beat on medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bottom of bowl occasionally, until mixture is stiff. Pour in gelatin mixture; beat until well blended. Spoon into serving dishes.
Whip cocoa mixture only until mixture forms stiff peaks when mixer beaters are lifted.
Refrigerate about 30 minutes before serving. Garnish as desired. Cover; refrigerate leftover desserts. Four 1/2 cup servings.
Double Recipe: Use 1 envelope gelatin; double remaining ingredients. Follow directions above, using large bowl instead of medium bowl.
