To prepare both the white and dark chocolate mousse, place the chocolate chips in a pot along with the heavy cream on the stove at low heat until it melts. Place the gelatin sheets in water for about 30 seconds or until they soften and then blend with the melted chocolate using the electric mixer at medium speed .  Refrigerate for 30 min.
