because every dessert is a little decadent

Chocolate Coffee Mousse with Orange Sauce

This chocolate coffee mousse is a combination of coffee, cocoa, instant pudding, cream, and tofu. Do not let the idea of silken tofu put you off. You cannot taste it in the mousse but it gives it a nice consistency. JELL-O ® does not have a coffee flavored pudding, but the flan flavored one is nice with the coffee. You could use chocolate instant pudding too but it tends to be very rich and this coffee mousse is better if it has a light and delicate flavor, rather than a heavy chocolate flavor.

The orange sauce is simple to make and you can either serve it at room temperature or chilled. If you chill it, it will get even thicker. If you wanted to, you could serve it hot and poured over the coffee mousse instead but this will be a bit messy!

There are plenty of dessert recipes for mousse desserts that you can make and this chocolate coffee mousse shows you how easy it is to combine pudding with a few other ingredients and get great results. Add some coffee liqueur or brandy to the mousse if you like, for a stronger and more luxurious flavor.
