Heat a saucepan one-third full with hot water, and in a bowl set on top, melt together the chocolate and coffee, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.


I used a steam oven to melt the chocolate. It's easier and it is ready in 7-8 minutes.


Whisk the egg yolks with 1 tbsp of sucanat and rum for about 3 minutes until the mixture is thick, like mayonnaise. (You can also use a handheld electric mixer.)


Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg yolks.


Beat the egg whites with salt and vanilla in a separate bowl until you get a foamy texture.


Fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture and whisk just until incorporated. Be careful not to over mix!


Divide the mousse into serving dishes and place in bowls. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until firm. (I wasn't that patient so I ate it after only one hour. It had a sticky, caramel-like texture which I actually loved!)


Extra ingredients:


I absolutely love spicy chocolate! If you want to taste something different add a pinch of chili powder in the chocolate mousse. It will be amazing!


Also, you can get that spicy flavor by adding ground Sichuan pepper berries. Just a pinch or two are enough to get a unique aroma.


If you want something with a seasonal flavor you can add some cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves. It will smell and taste like Christmas!

This chocolate mousse is made by cooking egg yolks over a saucepan of barely simmering water before combining them with other ingredients. The trick is to get the egg yolks hot enough to kill any bacteria, but not so hot that they curdle. The best way to judge the temperature is with an instant-read thermometer, which should reach 150°F. In this recipe, a small amount of sugar is beaten into the ..

White chocolate can be substituted for dark chocolate in many mousse recipes, but because mixtures made with it are more likely to be runny gelatin is often added to the mousse to help it set. White chocolate mousse makes a great cake filling, as does whipped white chocolate ganache. One caveat: Some brands of white chocolate may turn grainy when you heat them. I've had continued success ..

Simple elegant dessert with just 4 ingredients...Quick to make and an eye pleasing one...Adding sugar is up to you. I added sugar while whipping the cream.If your white chocolate already has vanilla flavor in it then don't add extra vanilla essence.If planing to use sauces don't fill it to the rim as I did.I got 4 small shot glasses of dessert with the above quantity.
