this was delightful! I made this for our dessert when we had some company over for dinner... made that morning so it sat in the fridge all day.
I melted the chocolate slowly in a saucepan on the stove on very low heat, stirring constantly. I had my big mixing bowl chilled in the freezer, so I used that for when I whipped the whipping cream. I whipped it on the 'high' setting for at least 8-10 min, not stopping once. I then seperated the egg yolks, and whisked it in a bowl with the sugar and some cold coffee, and a 'dash' of vanilla like others suggested (omitted the water), before adding it to the pot so the yolks didn't turn scrambl-y on me. I whisked it on med-high continuously and it became a frothy mixture (smells goood! with the coffee and the sugar and vanilla). I then added the choc. to it, stirrred well, then put the saucepan in my fridge for 5 min., came back, whisked it some more.. put it back in .. put some laundry in the dryer, came back, whisked it again, then added it to the whipping cream bowl and used the beaters on high for another few minutes... flufffyyy!
come dessert time I put the mousse into martini glasses, sprinkled some icing sugar lightly overtop, and put a few raspberries ontop of each glass with some chocolate mint leave things I had in the freezer. my company was super impressed with the mousse, and the presentation. and it was easy!!, just follow some key steps as others mentioned :))))
