Mocha cookie Mousse

This is a special dessert that I have made for many years.  It became a favorite of my British neighbor while we were residing on a Western compound in Riyadh. She asked me to make it for her weekly and said that it was her husband’s all time favorite dessert. It has a light mocha flavor and a chocolate cookie crust.

Ingredients

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup strong coffee or espresso

2 egg yolks

1 small jar marshmallow fluff

1 small container whipping cream

1/2 cup white sugar

Crust

15-20 chocolate cookies made into big crumbs

Directions

Pour crumbs into small spring form pan, press down and even out.

Filling

In sauce pan mix chocolate chips, water and coffee. On low heat whisk until smooth and chips are melted. Remove pan from heat and let cool slightly while doing the next step. Separate 2 eggs and use only yolks, discard egg whites. I personally do not use raw egg whites in my desserts. Whisk egg yolks well. Now you are going to use 2 to 3 Tablespoons of the warm chocolate mixture and whisk it into the egg yolks.

When well combined put this egg and chocolate mixture back into the saucepan.  Whisk well. Put pan back on medium heat and whisk constantly until low boil, cook chocolate at low boil for 2-3 minutes. Watch carefully so it does not burn.  After cooked remove from heat, cool for a few minutes.

Open jar of marshmallow fluff and put into a large bowl. Add chocolate mocha mix to marshmallow fluff and fold lightly. Do not mix, FOLD. Refrigerate chocolate mixture until cool. Meanwhile put whipping cream in mixer and add sugar. Mix well until stiff. When chocolate mix is cool fold 3 cups of  whipped cream in. FOLD do not mix! Pour into crust. Freeze for several hours.

Use left over cream to decorate your cake. I sprinkle cookie crumbs over the whipped cream. You can decorate in the way you like. Remove ring from pan and you have a beautiful dessert. I usually slide this onto a fancy platter for serving. You can use a pancake turner to loosen crust and slide the mousse onto platter. Make sure it is frozen before trying this.

  20. Oh Lynz,
    I would never be able to stop licking the bowl. Oh My My. I would have to leave out the coffee…NOT A FAN OF IT AT ALL. Would hot chocolate work in place of it?
    You have ruined anything else for me now. I crave chocolate and whipped cream…..So not fair.

  36. Have all the ingredients ready to start melting the chocolate and I see you say to melt the chocolate, water and coffee. But how much water? I don’t see that listed in the ingredients. Darn it. I’ll have to guess that it’s not very much water.

      • Was a hit at the party. However, perhaps not a good choice for a BBQ party as it sat too long at room temp and looked pretty sad. But people loved it and there wasn’t even any to bring home. Next time I will purchase a pint of whipping cream rather than the half pint. I didn’t have enough left over to top the cake with. Thanks for the recipe!
