Recipe: Chocolate Espresso Mousse



Silky smooth, this sweet mousse will have you sneaking spoonfuls from the refrigerator. This was the past weekends high calorie treat. Ever since I put the picture up I've been getting many requests to share the recipe.


Posting pictures of delicious deserts without their recipes just shouldn't be allowed huh? I should know better. I scroll through pinterest late at night looking at cupcakes and cookies and suddenly my stomach starts to rumble and I am even considering running to the kitchen to whip something up. Not good. Not good at all.
                         

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I saw in the Food Network magazine last year and tore out for my folder of recipe ideas. I knew that at some time I would take inspiration and perhaps create something interesting. I came across the picture this weekend and with some extra time to spend in the kitchen I decided to prepare a sweet desert. This is what I came up with.

 Here's the recipe:

Chocolate Espresso Mousse

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Instant Coffee Mixed into 1 Cup Boiling Hot Water
1 Box of Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding Mix
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Carton Ungar's Non Dairy Whipped Topping (16 oz)
Some Chocoriot Cereal to top.

Method:

1. Prepare the coffee. Pour it into a large bowl and add the chocolate pudding mix very slowly. Allow it to sit for a few minutes and slowly form into a pudding texture.
2. In the meantime, pour some of the whipped topping into the bowl of a mixing bowl. Add the sugar. Turn the mixer on and slowly add the rest of the contents of the carton.
3. Once the whipped topping is completely whipped so that is has formed soft peaks add the pudding coffee mixture to the mixing bowl. Turn the mixer on again combining the two.
4. Spoon the mousse into tall glasses filling them to the top. Refrigerate until ready to serve and top with the chocoriot cereal (chocolate pieces with caramel inside) immedietly before serving.

Recipe Notes:

You don't need to use sugar free choc pudding it's just what my husband brought home from the grocery. I think I'd have still added the sugar even if it hadn't been sugar free.
 Not so into the idea of topping with cereal? :) You can top with choc shavings, whipped cream, fresh fruit, nuts etc. Or how about topping a piece of cake with the mousse?
