This dessert is definitely one for special occasions! The combination of chocolate and brandy go so well together, it has to be tried! The mousse isn't particularly sweet, so feel free to add more sweetener if you prefer, and adjust the nutritional data accordingly.

Melt some unsweetened chocolate and heavy cream together in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir until the chocolate has fully melted. Add the cream cheese and continue cooking until it has dissolved into the chocolate mixture. Stir in the brandy.

In a separate bowl, whisk an egg white and preferred low carb sweetener until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture. It looks so good!!Low Carb Chocolate and Brandy Mousse - sugar free recipe

Made this today and absolutely LOVED the flavor but had a problem. I could never get the cream cheese to completely melt into the warm cream/chocolate mixture. I finally gave up when it looked like the whole thing was going to break. Still had little lumps in it when cold but again, the taste was great. Any ideas/thoughts? Should I try 2 oz of whipped cream cheese next time or ??? Thanks!!

Hmmm, I've never had this issue with melting cream cheese into a warm mixture - different it is cold of course! I'm not sure that whipped cream would work but I confess I haven't tried it - there's so much air it would probably would melt down to nothing and you'd had the opposite problem! I wonder if anyone else has had trouble with this?
