Cappuccino Chocolate Mousse with Caffè Latte

16 December 2014

Christmas is the perfect time for desserts. It's the season for indulgence, for 'oh just one more drink' and 'yes I will have another slice of cake thank you'. Recently I was invited to create a Christmas recipe with the Emmi CAFFÈ LATTE drinks and I thought this mousse would be a perfect choice for a holiday party. I'd serve as a luxurious end to a Christmas meal/ dinner party or for something less formal you could create edible cups for some impressive bite sized buffet snacks. It's light, with a very subtle coffee flavour behind the chocolate that will please coffee drinkers without offending the palates of any one else (although you can add extra spices or coffee if you like.)

The mousse is made using the Emmi CAFFÈ LATTE Cappuccino*, which is currently available in adorable christmas cups. I was really impressed with the drink; the cups are amazing for if you're on the go, instead of fussing with straws like a lot of iced drinks, this is a beautifully style takeaway coffee cup with a hole in the lid to sip and a lovely rounded design that makes them really comfortable and nice to hold. I've enjoyed them several times to help me wake up on cold winter mornings on my way to work lately.

Cappuccino Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Ingredients(serves 4)
170g Chocolate
75 ml Caffè Latte Cappuccino
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp coffee liquer (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
4 egg whites
1 egg yolk

Start by melting the chocolate (how you do this is up to you) and setting aside. In a small saucepan bring the coffee, liquer, and any spices to the boil. Pour the liquids and egg yolk onto the melted chocolate and whisk until well combined. Set to one side and leave to cool while you work on the meringue.

Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks begin to form. Continue to whisk as you gradually add the sugar until well mixed and it had formed stiff peaks (if you’re brave enough, you should be able to hold it above your head without any falling!). Slowly and gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mix until all streaks are gone, then pour into small glasses or bowls and chill overnight.

Serve with a sprinkling of cinnamon or grated chocolate.

  1. These look delicious Hannah. I've never tried these drinks, but I love iced coffee, so I'll definitely give them a go now.

  2. These are great! Love the addition of Cinnamon, perfection :)

  3. Thank you! I love iced tea and coffee, the caffe latte ones are great because there's quite a lot of choice in flavours and I love the little cups! :)

  4. Thanks Emma! I've been a bit obsessed with Cinnamon this winter. It's just so Christmassy and I can't get enough :) x
