Chocolate Mousse

1 tablespoon Great Lakes Gelatin
4 tablespoons cold water
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup sugar
2 squares (ounces) unsweetened chocolate
1 pint whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Soak gelatin in the cold water for 5 minutes, then dissolve thoroughly in the boiling water. Combine with the chocolate which has been melted over hot water, add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Cool, then fold in the stiffly beaten cream and vanilla. Turn into a mold, cover closely, seal and freeze 4 to 6 hours. Serves 6 to 8.

A couple questions:
What do you use to beat the cream with?
Do you have to use a mold in this recipe?

Add electricity to that and the pudding becomes self aware.

A fork....or maybe a slotted spoon? Something comfortable in your hand, your gonna be holding it for a while. ;) Actually, it probably tastes just fine as a pudding if you get tired of rapid wrist rotation.
