This easy chocolate mousse is a twist on the classic French mousse. It uses only two main ingredients and is rich, creamy, and decadent, yet light and airy. Perfect when you want to celebrate a special occasion like Valentine's day or mother's day with your loved one.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate at 50% power. Alternatively, you can use a double boilerTip - For a double boiler, place a saucepan with 2-inches of water on medium heat. Add chocolate to a heat-proof bowl. Place the bowl on top of the saucepan.
Add coffee powder and liqueur and combine well. Set aside to cool.
Fold cooled chocolate with whipped cream (save some whipped cream for garnish)Tip - the best way to do this is to add a few tablespoons of whipped cream to the melted chocolate first. Combine well then fold the remaining together. This way the chocolate will not seize.
Divide the mousse between 2 individual mousse cups. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream. I served with fresh strawberries on the side.
