I absolutely adore chocolate mousse.
Like every time I go to a fancy French restaurant I have to order it.
And devour it in less than 10 seconds.
But do you realize how ridiculously easy it is to make at home?
Extremely easy, I tell you!
And you don’t need any fancy ingredients either.
Just some chocolate chips, eggs, vanilla extract, sugar and in this case some instant coffee.
And it takes less than 10mins of prep time 🙂
Make it and your family will love you more for it.
Make it for your boyfriend and he might just propose! *
*can’t make any promises though! 😉
Alright so my laziness continues.
I’m still avoiding the gym and have been eating really naughty.
So starting tomorrow I will try to make some better choices and maybe even *gasp* workout!
I have no idea why I’ve been so unmotivated lately, but this needs to change now before I need to go shopping for bigger clothes.
I also got some cardio yoga by the gaiam series (Thanks Natalia!) that I’ve only done once so far and totally kicked my butt.
Hey, I thought yoga was supposed to be relaxing?
Not so much when you are falling over every two seconds and are praying to God that the next pose they’ll call is child’s pose so you can finally catch your breath lol!
But the next day I was soo sore! Like I could barely sit down and couldn’t laugh for 2 days. It felt ahhmazing! So I definitely need to do more of it 🙂
And hopefully my balance will get better with practice…
But for now I’ll just have some more chocolate mousse please!
I finally created a facebook page so please like it and I’ll love you forever 🙂 http://www.facebook.com/SweetAndSpicyLife

Coffee Flavored Chocolate Mousse
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 eggs, separated
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp instant coffee
- 1/2 tsp sugar
Directions: Heat the chocolate chips in the microwave until melted. One by one stir in the egg yolks, incorporating well after each addition.
In a small bowl whisk together the vanilla and coffee until the coffee is dissolved. Add to the chocolate and stir to combine.
In a bowl with your electric mixer, beat the egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks form.
Fold in 1/3 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until fully incorporated. Repeat two more times.
Divide the chocolate mousse into two wine or dessert glasses. Store in the fridge for at least 3 hrs.
Serve with whipped cream and extra chocolate chips.
