Several years ago, I attended a food bloggers conference and in attendance as part of a panel of speakers, was a company there called Raaka Chocolate . They distributed some samples of their raw and virgin chocolate and also had other unique flavors like Blueberry Lavender, Chile, Bourbon and one with Black Coffee.

So I decided to make a dark chocolate mousse using their black coffee chocolate bar, but since I posted this recipe back in 2012, I’ve made it again using regular dark chocolate and it came out just as good; especially since finding coffee flavored dark chocolate might not be so easy to find.

Coffee & Rum Dark Chocolate Mousse

To make this Coffee & Rum Dark Chocolate Mousse you’ll need dark chocolate, instant coffee, fat free half & half, rum extract, eggs, confectioners sugar and fresh raspberries for an optional topping.

Add the chocolate, half & half, and rum extract to a double boiler. Stir until the chocolate has melted; then set aside and allow to cool slightly. Once lukewarm, whisk in the egg yolks and set aside and allow to cool thoroughly.

Next, add the egg whites and sugar to a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks have formed. Fold in a spoonful of the chocolate mixture into the egg whites until blended, then add the remaining chocolate into the egg whites. (Be careful not to mix too hard so that the egg whites loose their stiffness).

Place the mousse in dessert cups and refrigerate for at least 1 hour so it has time to set; then garnish with fresh raspberries(optional). This Coffee & Rum Dark Chocolate Mousse is so rich and chocolatey, yet light and airy at the same time. ~Enjoy!
