Directions

  1. Melt chocolate, coffee, and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove from heat, beat in egg yolks, one at a time, and add brandy or liqueur, if desired. Chop half the ginger and add to the chocolate. Slice remaining ginger and set aside.
  2. Whisk egg whites in separate bowl with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Stir a large spoon of whites into the chocolate mixture, then gently fold in the rest.
  3. Divide between four small dessert glasses and chill at least 3 hours until set.
  4. Whip cream lightly and spoon on top of the mousses. Garnish with remaining ginger, dust with cocoa, and serve.
