I have found one of the quickest and easiest desserts to whip up! This is great for an adult dessert or for a dinner party and is very easy to double if you need more.
This is a great dessert to make if you are pushed for time as you can put it in the fridge for as little as 2 hours before serving.
The Kitchen will be closed over Christmas for a 3 week period. From my family to yours we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

Whisk in the cool coffee.
Whisk in the melted and cool chocolate.

Either spoon or pipe the mousse into glasses, it looks neater piped, I tried both.
Decorate with whipped cream and shavings of white and milk chocolate.
