HOW TO MAKE A QUICK AND EASY CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO MOUSSE

  • 2 shots espresso (or about 4 ounces of strong-brewed coffee)
  • 8 ounces Ghirardelli chocolate chips (or any chocolate chips, but these are AWESOME)
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  1. Put your chocolate chips and espresso shots together in a small saucepan over medium heat, and stir frequently until the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and set aside for now.
  2. Pour the heavy whipping cream into a standing mixer and beat until the cream begins to thicken (or a bowl/electronic hand mixer).
  3. Slowly add the sugar, just a bit at a time until fully blended.
  4. Continue blending until stiff peaks form in the whipping cream.
  5. Mix the chocolate/espresso into the bowl with whipping cream and blend carefully on slow, or even just with a spatula (to keep the mixture from deflating).
  6. Spoon the mixture into small bowls or glasses, chill in the fridge or eat straight away!
