    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    Recipe from Southern Living February 2014. This seriously easy and decadent mousse hides a secret: reduced-sodium soy sauce! Just 1/2 teaspoon elevates the deep, rich flavor of the dark chocolate. Add crunch with cookies to contrast the mousse's silky texture. Heating store-bought shortbread for five minutes in a 350F. oven opens up the flavors of the buttery cookies.

    1. 1
      Microwave chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1 minute or until slightly melted.
    2. 2
      Bring coffee, next 3 ingredients, and 2/3 cup cream to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Pour hot cream-coffee mixture over chocolate in bowl. Let stand 15 seconds, and stir until smooth.
    4. 4
      Cool completely (30 minutes or more).
    5. 5
      Beat remaining 1 cup cream at high speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer, using a whisk attachment, until foamy; gradually add sugar, beating until soft peaks form.
    6. 6
      Stir 1/2 cup coffee-chocolate mixture into the whipped cream until blended; gradually fold in remaining coffee-chocolate mixture. (Mixture will be loose.).
    7. 7
      Spoon chocolate mixture into a shallow 2-qt. bowl or 6 (8-10-oz) glasses. Cover with plastic wrap (without touching mousse), and chill 2 to 3 hours.
    8. 8
      Serve with cookies, if desired, and toppings.
    9. 9
      Note: Store-bought Walkers Pure Butter Assorted Shortbread cookies were warmed in the oven at 350° for 5 minutes so they tasted freshly baked.
    10. 10
      Make-Ahead Tip: Refrigerate mousse, without desired toppings, up to 2 days.

      I scaled this back for 4 serves and we all enjoyed the silky smooth mousse and served with a shortbread finger just really made it that more delicious with its crumbly texture. Thank you Kerfuffle-Upon-Winkle, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
