Chocolate Covered Coffee Bean Mousse
One of my first restaurant memories was way back when I was just 3 years old and my family took a trip to Aruba. I remember sitting in the restaurant and my parents were both ordering with the waiter. When it came my turn and he asked me what I would like for dinner my response was “Chocolate Mousse.” I have no idea where that came from, but I totally support it!
Life is short. Eat dessert first. Or just have chocolate mousse for dinner.
This is one of my favorite recipes for chocolate mousse, mainly because it is spiked with coffee and then topped with chocolate covered coffee beans. It’s essentially your dessert and after dinner drink all in one!
For this recipe I got to utilize one of the most indispensable appliances in my kitchen, the Keurig coffee brewer. I seriously can’t express how much I love my Keurig. From coffee in the morning to tea in the afternoon and maybe even a hot chocolate snack at night, I use it every day and often several times a day.
My go to K-cup is the Newman’s Own Special Blend. To me it is just the perfect blend of bold flavor and a medium roast, plus its certified organic. As you can see, I am adequately stocked up. (I get the budget sized box at Costco!)
Another unique twist to this recipe is the use of extra-virgin olive oil instead of the usual heavy cream. This secret ingredient results in a fantastically silky texture. The key is to use a very mild tasting olive oil to let the chocolate really shine through.
