  • 9 ounces (255 g) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, preferably about 60 % cacao mass, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) brewed coffee
  • 3 tablespoons whiskey
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy cream; use lactose-free if possible


  1. Combine chocolate, brewed coffee and whiskey in a small saucepan and heat over very low heat, whisking gently, until the chocolate is about three-quarters of the way melted. Remove from heat and allow residual heat to melt chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool until just warm.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl. Gently whisk in the chocolate mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Beat the egg whites until peaks form with electric mixer. Fold about a quarter of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it up, then fold in the remaining egg whites.
  4. Divide chocolate mousse into 12 small serving dishes and refrigerate for at least an hour or up to overnight.
  5. Right before serving, whip the cream with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar and top each chocolate mousse with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve to oohs and aahs.
