Awesome chocolate mousse recipe

This mousse is a firm favourite in our house. It's pretty easy to make and delicious!

200g cooking chocolate
5 egg whites
200g castor sugar
1 tsp instant coffee powder
300ml cream
2 nips rum or brandy (optional)

Beat egg whites with 100g castor sugar until very stiff. Put aside. In a separate bowl, beat cream with 100g castor sugar and then set aside. Break chocolate into large bowl and melt over boiling water. Stir coffee and rum / brandy into melted chocolate and remove from heat. Add egg white into chocolate mixture and whisk until well combined. Carefully fold under whipped cream. Pour into serving bowl (or individual bowls) and refrigerate for a few hours - cover with cling film to ensure mousse does not absorb other flavours.

Serve wtih fresh fruit and cream - or simply eat it as is.
