Coffee Chocolate Mousse


  • 300g dark chocolate (70%), melted, room temperature
  • 3 large eggs
  • 80g castor sugar
  • 5ml Gibb’s Farm coffee grinds (or any other good quality coffee grinds)
  • 2ml ground cinnamon
  • 1ml vanilla seeds
  • 5ml vanilla essence
  • 200ml cream, whipped to soft peaks

Get everything in the ingredient list ready before you start. 

Melt the chocolate, whip the cream, and whip the egg mixture to the ribbon stage before you add anything to the chocolate.  This is because the chocolate starts setting as soon as cold ingredients are added to it and makes moulding it or dishing it neatly into a serving bowl difficult.

Beat eggs, sugar, instant coffee, cinnamon, vanilla seeds, and vanilla essence until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is full of air and fluffy (ribbon stage).

Fold a third of the egg mixture into the melted dark chocolate, then carefully fold in the rest of the egg mixture.

Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate and egg mixture.

Spoon the chocolate mousse into moulds, serving glasses or a suitable serving bowl.  Carefully tap any air bubbles.

Set in fridge for 1 hour.

Decorate and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
