Chocolate Mousse

We have been trying different mousse recipes for a long time and I think I have it perfected.  This was so good.  Sorry, about the horrible picture.  I was in a hurry... in a hurry to eat it. :)

Chocolate Mousse-
2 cups heavy whipping cream (or you could use 3 cups whipped topping but it won't be as good)
1 package instant chocolate pudding mix (the small ones)
1/2 cup hot fudge ice cream topping (you can buy it or use the recipe a the bottom.)
2 cups cold milk

Place milk, whipping cream, and chocolate pudding in a bowl and mix until fluffy and smooth.  Is that a contradiction?  It will look like fluffy pudding.  Then slowly whisk in 1/2 cup hot fudge topping.

Then chill until ready to serve.

Hot Fudge Sauce-
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 can of evaporated milk
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Place all ingredients except vanilla in a small saucepan and stir well until it is smooth and creamy and thickens a bit.  Add vanilla extract and then chill in the fridge.
