  5. Combine chocolate mixture with mascarpone mixture. Cool to room temperature.
  6. Whip heavy cream in a bowl until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes.

I may have taken a wrong turn on this recipe but it did not turn out like a mousse. It was more like a pudding. I wonder it I used the wrong type of chocolate. I will try it again.
