the whipped cream? I'm picturing what you're describing, but it would have been a really cold whipped cream and the chocolate couldn't have been totally melted and stirred into the egg whites for it to reform, right?
I'm surprised she used chips. I thought they weren't meant to melt easily. I looked up six difference Gale Gand mousse recipes and none mention chips...just bittersweet, white, semisweet or milk chocolate.

- If you used chips. that was probably the culprit. They are nearly impossible to completely melt. [NT] - LisainLA - 5:14am on 02/28/18
