Fake chocolate moose

I actually do make real chocolate mousse (moose), but if you are in a hurry and need to impress someone quickly with a dessert, then this is for YOU.

Whut u knead:

600 mls (2 1/2 cups) fresh whipping cream (or thickened cream)
3/4 (or so) cup of sugar
3/4 (or so) cup of cocoa powder
small piece of dark cooking chocolate
3 fresh strawberries*

Whut u due:
Put the first 3 thingies into a mixing bowl. Then mix it with an electric mixer till it's very very stiff. Spoon that into a pie dish (note: it makes a cool splat sound coming off a spoon) and smooth the top.

Slice the strawberries and stick them artfully into the top so that about half of each slice is sticking up.

Shave the chocolate (just use a big kitchen knife, easy stuff) and sprinkle liberally over the top.

That's it! Serve it up and call it done. I recommend serving it with a glass of chocolate liquer on the side --yummy.
