Chocolate Coffee Mousse
- 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate cut into pieces
- 1/4 cup strong coffee
- 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter cut into pieces
- 3 egg whites
- 3 egg yolks
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream
- Place chocolate and coffee into a double boiler. Stir until fully melted, about 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add in butter, stirring until fully combined. Mix in egg yolks one at a time, make sure to quickly stir each addition to ensure the eggs do not cook in the warm chocolate mixture. Cover and set aside.
- In a clean dry bowl, beat egg whites with a dash of salt until soft peaks form. Continue beating the egg whites adding the sugar a tablespoon at a time until all has been added and stiff peaks form.
- In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream until it holds it shape. Gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture. Fold in whipped cream until fully incorporated and there are no white streaks. Cover and place in fridge until ready to serve, at least 2 hours.
