Dark Chocolate Mousse

Dark Chocolate Mousse

Absolutely Fantastic!!! Very quick and easy.

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 8 ounce(s) Bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 5 tablespoon(s) Nespresso made coffee
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Brandy, I used our port/brandy mix
  • 2 Eggs, separated
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon(s) Sugar, divided (1 1/2 tsp for egg yolks; 1 tsp for egg whites
  • 1 cup(s) Whipping cream


Combine chocolate, coffee (nespresso), cocoa powder, brandy in a medium size saucepan. Set of low heat, stirring until it is completely melted and smooth; remove from heat.

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks plus 1 1/2 tsp sugar until slightly thickened and pale in colour. Pour melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and whisk to combine. Let cool until its slightly warmer than room temperature, about 5 minutes.

Whip the egg whites until foamy then add remaining 1 tsp sugar. Continue to whip until soft peaks form. Gently whisk in 1/4 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg whites with a rubber spatula until just a few white streaks remain.

Whip cream until soft peaks form. Using a rubber spatula gently fold in the whipped cream into the chocolate mousse until no white streaks remain. Spoon into individual serving cups, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set and firm, about 2 hours.
