Chocolate Mousse

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Studentchef

I found this on a website, and have been using it for several years for Passover. It has always been a big hit with the family. You can make this year round as well.

The first time I made this recipe my egg whites wouldn't stiffen up. So I beat them in with the chocolate mixture. The result I got wasn't mousse (and I didn't expect it to be), but it wasn't pudding either. It was just some fluffy chocolate stuff... nevertheless it was DELICIOUS fluffy chocolate stuff. The second time I made it, it was more mousse-like, but I think it kind of tasted better as "stuff." I omitted the coffee both times. Thanks Studentchef!
