  • Set a double boiler over simmering (not boiling) water. Melt chocolate and margarine.
  • Transfer chocolate mixture into a bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, and stir well to combine. Add agave and mix well. Use an immersion blender to smooth out any lumps.
  • Fill martini glasses or trifle cups with chocolate mousse mixture, 3/4 full. Place in freezer until firm, at least 4 hours.
  • Slightly defrost ice cream. Fill remaining 1/4 of mousse cups with non-dairy ice cream.
  • Sprinkle garnish of choice and freeze until ready to serve.
