Instructions

1
In a large bowl, beat heavy cream, vanilla beans, and salt with a whisk (or hand mixer) until stiff peaks form. Place bowl in refrigerator to chill before moving on.
2
Set up a double boiler by filling a small sauce pot with 2 cups of water and place a metal bowl on top (that will fit the pot but won't touch the water). Heat over medium-low. Water should never go past a gentle simmer. Melt chocolate chips in bowl. Once fully melted and smooth remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. *(Be careful not to get any liquid in the chocolate or it will seize up).
3
In another bowl, using a hand or stand mixer (preferred), whisk egg whites and vinegar until soft peaks form. Continue to whisk as you add sugar in a slow stream until incorporated. Continue whisking until stiff peaks form.
4
In a very slow stream, add melted (warm, not hot) chocolate to whipped egg whites on low speed until all chocolate is incorporated.
5
Fold the chocolate-egg mixture into the whipped cream until smooth and well mixed. *(Be sure to fold gently so mousse stays light and airy).
6
Pour in serving cups and refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with fresh fruit or shaved white or dark chocolate, if desired.
