Who doesn’t love chocolate and everything that is made with chocolate? This dark chocolate mousse is our new favorite dessert.
130 g dark chocolate
1 tablespoon brandy / Kahlua rum & coffee Liqueur
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar (use more if you have a sweet tooth)
2 tablespoons espresso instant coffee
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
200 heavy cream
2 tablespoon dark cocoa powder
water to dissolve gelatin
In a medium bowl, add chocolate, cocoa powder and instant coffee
Add 80 g heavy cream; whisk and microwave on high for about one minute or one and a half minute until chocolate melts. The time needed might differ depending on different microwave ovens.
Whisk everything together. Allow it to cool for a while until it is not hot to touch.
In a small bowl, add water; sprinkle gelatin on top; and then microwave for a few seconds. Gelatin heats and melts really fast. Be sure not to overheat it.
In another large bowl, add remaining 120 g heavy cream along with sugar. With an electronic whisk, beat it into whipped cream.
Combine chocolate sauce, melted gelatin, brandy / Kahlua rum & coffee Liqueur together. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
Divide it into small glasses or bowls
I top them with chocolate whipped cream.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or longer
A bit caramel sauce and chopped nuts make them even prettier! O(∩_∩)O~
The mousse is very rich and dark chocolate flavor with silky and smooth texture. We really love it.
