Chocolate Mousse
(from True Grits: Tall Tales and Recipes from the New South)


3/4 cup whipping cream

1 cup chocolate chips

2 eggs

3 tablespoons strong brewed coffee

1 tablespoon coffee liqueur

1/4 cup whipping cream, whipped


Place a film of water in the bottom of a saucepan to prevent the whipping cream from burning when heated. Add the 3/4 cup whipping cream. Heat until the whipping cream is scalded.

Combine the chocolate chips, eggs, coffee and liqueur in a blender container. Add the scalded whipping cream. Blend the mixture for 2 minutes. Pour into the mousse cups.

Chill, covered with plastic wrap, for 6 hours. Spoon the whipped cream on the top of each before serving.
