Dark Chocolate Espresso Mousse
This Dark Chocolate Espresso Mousse is creamy and chocolatey and the addition of the espresso powder that enhances the chocolate flavor even more.
If you’re looking for an easy, yet impressive dessert that looks and tastes like it could be served in a fine dining restaurant, then you’ve come to the right place.
I don’t make desserts to often, I actually do not have a sweet tooth, but when I do feel like enjoying a dessert, I don’t like one that is too sweet. I like fruit desserts and especially chocolate desserts. That’s why I really did enjoy eating this Dark Chocolate Espresso Mousse.
Total time from start to finish is about 22 minutes and what is great about this mousse is, whether you’re entertaining or just feeding the family, the mousse can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve.
The presentation starts with white chocolate drizzled on the inside of the glass, a simple but very striking and elegant look. I used good quality dark chocolate that melts beautifully. I just add it to a ziptop bag, snip the end and you have an instant piping bag.
The dark chocolate is melted with the secret ingredient, instant espresso powder. Heavy cream is whipped with vanilla extract and gently folded into the melted chocolate. So there you have it, a decadent yet easy and impressive dessert.
