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!
This recipe is both delicious and forgiving! My chocolate must have cooled too much as it was stiff and hard to fold in the egg whites - by the time they were incorporated the mixture was no longer light and fluffy (though a lot less stiff). I opted to add a few more whipped egg whites and folded those in and viola! Delicious and not a bit left after last night's dinner with friends.
This is wonderful and tastes so luscious and rich. The directions do not specify, but I dissolved the coffee granules into the water before adding them together. :) Thank you for sharing a terrific recipe!
Mmmm so good! Enjoyed it for a late night snack and it's so quick to whip up too. It settled and firmed upon refrigeration and eaten with gusto! Thanks for sharing.
This recipe should be titled "Easy Chocolate Mousse" as it is so simple to put together. I made this for Buddha, putting it all into a small bowl, but helped him eat half as it's very addicting. Yummy quick recipe, thanks for posting. NOTE: Step #3 should read gently 'fold' into the chocolate mixture. :)
Oh my, this was excellent! Easy to make too! I didn't have semi sweet chocolate, so used milk chocolate. Delicious! Thank you! My husband loved it as much as I did! Updated to add this made 4 servings in little custard cups.
