  1. Melt semisweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips in heavy saucepan over very low heat while stirring. Stir coffee into the melted chocolate, remove from heat, and cool to room temperature.
  2. Beat egg yolks, one at a time, into the chocolate mixture.
  3. Beat heavy cream with an electric hand mixer in a large mixing bowl until thickened. Gradually beat sugar into the cream until the mixture is stiff.
  4. Beat egg whites with the salt in a separate glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form; fold into the cream mixture. Take about 1/3 of the resulting mixture and stir into the chocolate mixture. Scrape remaining cream-and-egg mixture over lightened chocolate base and fold together gently; pour into a serving bowl or individual dessert cups.
  5. Chill in refrigerator until set, about 2 hours.

I haven't made this yet, but I want to. It just seems like it's a lot. I have a small family and wanted to make it for dessert, but I don't want air if it.

Very delicious, but mine had a few small lumps in it. (Chocolate lumps, and who among us doesn't have a few of those?) I will try again soon, and hope next time to be lump free!!!

This recipe is for a large group, but by using the "Change Servings" calculator, you can make smaller amounts. I've made it with lumps (the chocolate cooled a little to much) but that was a hit too! Enjoy!

Was not sure what to rate this. It is indeed delicious. I've made mousse before using a different recipe which I lost. That said when I added the coffee the chocolate seized the coffe was very warm and the chocolate cool. I decided to leave the coffee out as that was something new I hadn't seen in a mousse recipe. Next batch when chocolate cooled I started to add the egg yolks and once against seized! Third time. I decided to leave out the egg yolks as well. I let the chocolate cool added just a spoonful of the egg white/cream mixture and it seized!!!! That was it LOL. I dumped the seized chocolate into the whipped cream mixture and mixed it with hand mixer it blended well you can see some tiny specks of chocolate but it is delicious. So if it seizes don't make another batch just dump it and mix it lol
