About chocolate and health. Chocolate is perfectly acceptable as part of a balanced diet. A 1-ounce milk chocolate bar contains 147 calories. Furthermore, studies have shown that bacteria in the skin, not chocolate, is the cause of acne in teenagers. Eating chocolate does not increase your chances of getting cavities any more than any other food.
6 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1 tablespoon grand marnier, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
Sweetened whipped cream (optional)
Combine semisweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate and milk in heavy small saucepan. Stir over low heat until chocolates melt. Mix in the Grand Marnier or vanilla, if desired. Let chocolate mixture stand until cool to the touch yet still fluid (if chocolate is not cool enough, it will seize into tiny flecks when folded into the whipped cream).

Using an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream and sugar in a large bowl just until stiff peaks form (do not overwhip or you'll end up with butter). Using whisk, fold some chocolate mixture into the whipped cream. Then, add remaining chocolate mixture and fold until just combined. Spoon chocolate mousse into 6 wine goblets or ramekins, and chill. (Can be made 1 day ahead.)

If desired, spoon or pipe sweetened whipped cream atop the mousse just before serving.
