Ingredients
350gr 85% chocolate finely chopped to the size of chocolate drops *see suggestions below
4 large eggs at room temperature
2t vanilla extract
Pinch salt
250ml hot coffee *see suggestions below
Method
Place all the ingredients except the hot coffee into a blender.
Blend until the mixture looks smooth.
With the blender running at a low speed, pour the hot coffee in slowly through the opening in the top of the blender lid.
Blend until the mixture is smooth and all the chocolate has melted.
Check for taste and add some sweetener of choice if you want a sweeter taste.
Pour into ramekins or glasses and place in the fridge to set for a firmer texture.
Remove from the fridge prior to serving.
Notes
Use Lindt Intense Orange, Mint, Chilli or any other flavoured dark chocolate.
Add 1T of your favourite liqueur.
Try using different teas instead of the coffee – maybe Earl Grey, Orange Pekoe or Lemon & ginger with ginger chocolate.

does it not need cream!

bedazzledjewels, Sep 6, 5:44am
Not that one. It's real easy.
A true mousse in the French style only uses eggs, chocolate and sugar.
The easy mousse above is a dense one, a bit more like a marquise.
A lighter mousse can have cream in it.

Wow. What an amazing recipe. I think this one is going out with me tomorrow night as my dessert offering.

It's off our website Buzzy. The chocolate melts as soon as the hot coffee hits it.

I've just put this on the egg white thread:

LIGHT MOUSSE

100g chocolate
4 egg whites
50g sugar
pinch salt

Melt chocolate and cool.
Beat the other ingredients to the stiff peak stage and fold in the chocolate gradually.
Chill (in separate glasses). Serves 6.

thanks i even copied some down. now with the chocolate does it matter what flavour you use! can that be left to the imagination, can you add bits to the mixture.
