- 2 cups fresh strawberries
- 3 tablespoons orange liqueur
- 3 tablespoons water
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups whipping cream

Wash, stem and halve strawberries. In a bowl, toss strawberries and liqueur; cover and refrigerate.
The liqueur can be replaced with orange juice.
To make chocolate mousse: In a small saucepan, mix water with 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer 1 minute. Place chocolate chips in blender and add hot sugar mixture. Blend until chocolate is melted and smooth.
In medium bowl, whip 1 cup of the cream. With rubber spatula, fold chocolate into cream to blend thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate until firm, for one day.
Just before serving, whip the remaining cup cream to form soft peaks. Beat in 1 tablespoon sugar and the vanilla.
In four dessert bowls, layer mousse, whipped cream and strawberries, dividing equally.
