Chocolate Whipped Cream with Berries Recipe
I've found that sometimes the dishes that are most impressive to my guests are the easiest ones to make. This recipe definitely falls into that category! Most people love both chocolate and whipped cream so combining the two is a great way to get everyone's attention, especially since it's served warm!
The whipped cream is simple to make and is just equal parts dark chocolate and heavy cream. It is a rich and flavorful, but light, topping. I often serve this with berries but it's also great on cake, brownies, or ice cream.
Also, if you are just getting started experimenting with molecular gastronomy and modernist cuisine then I highly recommend one of these molecular gastronomy kits. They have everything you need to do many different dishes.

Chocolate Whipped Cream with Berries Instructions
Combine the heavy cream and chocolate in a pot and melt over low heat. Stir regularly to prevent the cream and chocolate from scorching. You can also use a double boiler or sous vide machine to melt the chocolate. Whisk well until combined.
Pour into a whipping siphon and charge. Dispense while the whipped cream is warm or it can solidify. If you are serving it later you can place the whipping siphon in a water bath or sous vide machine to melt the chocolate.
Layer the whipped cream with the berries in a small glass or bowl. Top with the mint leaves and orange zest then serve.
