Ingredients

75 ml (⅓ cup) 35% cream
120 g (4 oz) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
50 ml (¼ cup) butter
30 ml (2 tbsp) espresso coffee at room temperature
3 egg whites
50 ml (¼ cup) sugar
3 egg yolks

Directions

  1. In a bowl, whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. Refrigerate.

  3. Beat the eggs whites, adding the sugar a little at a time, until they form soft peaks. Set aside at room temperature.
  4. Whisk the egg yolks into the cooled chocolate mixture. Fold the egg whites gently into the chocolate, one-third at a time.
  5. Fold the whipped cream carefully into the chocolate until thoroughly incorporated.
  6. Transfer the mousse to one large serving bowl or individual dessert dishes.
  7. Refrigerate 6 hours before serving. Decorate with chocolate shavings.
