Irish Coffee Mousse

Servings: 4
This is a lovely, light dessert version of that wonderful Irish Coffee with a little bit of chocolate flavor for all of the "Chocoholics" out there. This mousse is wonderful.......

2 eggs, separated
2 ounces granulated sugar
2 tablespoons coffee extract or flavoring
1 tablespoon cocoa
2 tablespoons Irish Whiskey
1 envelope unflavored gelatine
1/2 pint heavy cream
Whipped Cream, for garnish

Whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, cocoa, and coffee extract until thick, creamy and leaving a trail. Fold in the whiskey.

Place 3 tablespoons cold water in a small dish and sprinkle the gelatine over, leaving to stand for 5 minutes then dissolve over a pan of hot water. Fold into the coffee mixture.

Softly whip the cream, fold half into the coffee mixture. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, fold into the mousse and spoon into a serving bowl or glasses. Chill until set. Garnish each mousse with a dollop of remaining whipped cream.

Makes 4 servings.
