Mochaccino Mousse with Cinnamon Coffee Sauce

This delicious mousse is served in a pool of homemade cinnamon coffee sauce. First, you need to make the mousse, and then you can make the sauce while the mousse chills. Mochaccino is a cross between cappuccino and mocha. Cappuccino is frothy coffee and mocha is chocolate with coffee, so this mousse is flavored with both chocolate and coffee.

The sauce is made with cinnamon, coffee, and vanilla. The sauce for this mochaccino mousse is very versatile actually. You can keep it for up to two weeks in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator. Serve it drizzled over pound cake or vanilla ice cream or as a dip for fresh fruit pieces. The sauce reduces as it cooks and you will have about one cup of it in total.

If you enjoy rich and full flavored dessert recipes and gelatin recipes, you will love this mochaccino mousse. It is an elegant dessert to serve at a dinner party or a luxurious and indulgent dessert to surprise the family with after dinner.
