Fragrant Comforting Chocolate Mousse

Fragrant Comforting Chocolate Mousse

This smooth chocolate mousse is subtly accented with coffee.
The lovely coffee fragrance makes me so happy!

Ingredients: 3 ~ 4 pudding molds

Milk chocolate
60 g
Unsalted butter
15 g
Instant coffee
1 tablespoon
Heavy cream
40 ml


1. Finely chop the chocolate. Dissolve the coffee in 1 tablespoon of hot water. Separate the eggs into egg yolks and whites.
2. Put the chocolate and butter in a bowl, and melt in a double boiler at 45 ~ 50℃ (110 ~ 120°F).
3. Remove the mixture from the double boiler. Add coffee and stir.
4. Add the egg yolks one by one, and mix.
5. Pour the egg whites in a different bowl. Whip until it forms stiff peaks to make a meringue.
6. Add 1/3 of the meringue to Step 4 and mix it 5 ~ 6 times in a circular motion.
7. Add the remaining meringue, and fold it in with a diagonal cutting motion. Don't mix too much.
8. Pour into molds, and chill well in the fridge. (At least for 4 hours.)
9. Whip the heavy cream until it has thickened.
10. Pour it on top of the chilled mousse and serve!
