With a mixer, whip egg to soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar and continue whipping until firm.

Remove the chocolate from the double boiler and using a whisk, fold (http://www.wikihow.com/Fold-(Baking) in the egg whites all at once. When the whites are almost completely incorporated, fold in the whipped cream. Cover the mousse and refrigerate for approximately 1 hour or until set. Top with whipped cream and berries as desired.
