  1. Whip the cream to form light peaks. Set aside in the refrigerator. Melt the chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl set over barely simmering water. Meanwhile, whip the eggs with the sugar until very fluffy and thick, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir the hot coffee into the melted chocolate chips. The mixture will start to thicken, so work quickly. Quickly stir in the beaten eggs, then fold in the whipped cream. Pour or spoon mixture into cups or bowls, and chill until firm, about 2 hours.

AMAZING! I am testing mousses for chocolate cordial cup fillings for a shower and I bought the Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips. I am sure the cacao is great too, but wanted a bit sweeter....

I have a stand-by favorite chocolate mousse recipe I’ve been using for years (since it’s Hubs’ favorite dessert) but today I felt like trying something new. I liked this recipe, however, for my...

This tasted really good. Except I was a little dissapointed because mine never got really thick like the photo posted. That is why I had chosen this recipe. But, I could think of a ton of ways t...

This was fantastic. I used the scaling function to reduce this to 2 servings and it was perfect for our Valentine's Day dessert. I did add about 1/2 tsp vanilla extract as I was adding the wh...
