Directions

  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.

THESE ARE NOT WHOLE EGGS!! Separate the eggs, and whip only the whites. I know it doesn't say to, but just do it. Whole eggs won't whip properly, and you won't get it to set up the way you want it to. That said, this is a fantastic recipe. Couldn't be tastier. Just don't waste eggs by trying to whip them whole.

Very easy to make and very tasty. The first time I made I skipped using the coffee - the coffee really adds to the flavor of the chololate so don't skip that step. And be careful not to over whip the cream. If it is too stiff your mousse will come out lumpy.

It was wonderful! My hubby who is a mousse-snob wanted to eat it all. My picky daughters enjoyed it too, which is surprising. Of course, I made him share. It was easy to make as well. I will definitely make this for my family again.
