Cappuccino Mousse with Chocolate Sprinkles

There are three main elements in mousse recipes. The first one is the base and this is the coffee in cappuccino mousse, the chocolate in chocolate mousse, or the peaches in peach mousse. Next is the binder, which is normally gelatin. If the base ingredient has a lot of body, the gelatin might not be necessary. Cheese or chocolate-based mousses do not always require gelatin but it can still be used to give flavor. You can use either your favorite gelatin, gelatin sheets, gelatin powder or agar agar for this. puddings can also be used for mousse recipes, because they whip up so nicely and are naturally mousse-like in texture.

Something is needed to aerate the mousse and this might be whipped cream or beaten egg whites. The aerator is used to give the mousse a light, airy texture. It is important to stir the aerator in gently, else the mousse will deflate. Savory mousses can be made from meat, fish, seafood, or cheese and they can be cold or hot. They are squeezed through a piping bag on to pastry shells, meat, fish, or vegetables and can be served as an appetizer.

Sweet mousses are served for dessert and are often served in dessert glasses and garnished with whipped cream, a sweet sauce or fruit. The following cappuccino mousse recipe blends cream, milk, chocolate instant pudding and coffee for a light, fluffy, cappuccino flavored dessert. This is one of our most easy mousse recipes and a few chocolate sprinkles are all you need for a nice garnish. French chefs have been working with chocolate since the early 1600s and it was the Spanish who introduced chocolate to France. The first written record of chocolate mousse in America is from an 1892 Food Exposition held in New York’s Madison Square Garden. An 1897 edition of the Boston Globe published a chocolate mousse recipe in its housekeepers’ column, although that recipe was for a chocolate pudding type of mousse, rather than a light, foamy one.

Photo Description:

Mousse is always a great dessert, and here we are combining chocolate with coffee to make these rich mousses. We garnished ours with white chocolate candies and fresh mint leaves, but you can serve them plain or choose another decoration, perhaps something seasonal. The great thing about this recipe is how simple it is; once you have combined the ingredients you are done, and you can just leave the mousses to set in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them. You can expect a rich, creamy flavor and a thick, satisfying consistency.
