Chocolate Mousse

Very easy and so so so rich!  This would make an excellent layer in a chocolate cake.
Chocolate Mousse

2 c. cream, separated
1 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate cut into small pieces
2 tsp. corn syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. coconut, almond, or cherry extract (optional)
In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips with 2/3 cup of the cream and the corn syrup. Once melted and smooth, stir in vanilla and flavored extract, if using. Stir in remaining 1 1/3 cup cream and stir to combine.
Place in a glass or metal bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until completely chilled. When chilled, beat with electric mixer until whipped and light. Place in serving dishes or ramekins and serve when desired.
