Espresso Chocolate Mousse

Espresso Chocolate Mousse
Last night, it rained. It sounded like magic and love and dreaming and soup and kittens. I put on my fluffiest sweatshirt and cuddled up in bed and watched super classy shows like Jersey Shore and Teen Mom 2. Keepin’ things elegant, you know. I was joyous; absolutely blissful. Until, without any warning, some scary evil malicious malevolent forceful force came over me and I was craving chocolate frosting something fierce. No amount of Gossip Girl was going to help me and I knew it, so I gave in. It’s like eating chocolate clouds off a spoon. Espresso Chocolate Mousse 4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, cut into pieces 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder 2 large eggs, seperated 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar 3 tablespoons superfine sugar, divided 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream Set a medium sized bowl in the freezer- you will use this later to whip the cream. Eat some chocolate today. Jordana Like this: Like Loading...

D’Espresso - New York The new D’Espresso on Madison Avenue (at 42nd) in New York has received more media attention than is generally awarded to a tiny coffee shop in this world of millions of new coffee shops.
