Chocolate Mousse Challenge

Chocolate Mousse Challenge

I planned a Mousse-a-Palooza gathering for some friends a week ago. We taste tested and compared 4 different types of chocolate mousse…one classic with raw egg, one with no eggs, one with marshmallows and one made in the blender. I promised Nick I would have this Chocolate Mousse Challenge before he headed off to college for the start of his sophomore year. Nothing worse, in his mind, than reading about my chocolate mousses on facebook when he had just moved into his first apartment, eating boxed mac and cheese and pb sandwiches (that’s the extent of his cooking repertoire as far as I’ve witnessed).

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, separated
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup coffee liqueur (I used Kahlua)
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • ¼ cup strong coffee
  • 6 ounces unsalted butter, softened
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Lightly sweetened whipped cream and berries, optional for serving
