Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate mousse is food for the soul. There is nothing better than a light, fluffy chocolately bite of heaven and that’s what mousse is.

I also fool myself into thinking there is protein in it from the egg whites and truly believe that I am eating something that is healthy.

Ingredients Needed:
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup of water
1/2 tsp crushed instant coffee
4 eggs
1/4 cup of white sugar

Start out by melting the chocolate chips and water in a pot on low heat. When they are melted, stir in the coffee.

Separate the eggs, the whites go into a mixing bowl and the yolks into a large enough bowl that you can mix them with a fork and not make a mess.

Beat the egg yolks until they are frothy and a paler yellow.


Remove the chocolate from the stove and add the beaten egg yolks to the melted chocolate in the pot, rapidly mixing to make sure you don’t get any lumps in it.

Beat the egg whites until they are stiff, adding the sugar slowly. Then fold in the chocolate mixture gently.

 

Divide into 4-6 servings and chill for a few hours before serving.
