Chocolate Mousse from Lacy’s Fresh Fare and Catering

Special thanks to Ericka Bauer, manager of Lacy’s Fresh Fare and Catering with K-State's College of Health and Human Sciences, for supplying this recipe. Located inside Justin Hall, Lacy's Fresh Fare and Catering is run by students; it includes a quick-service restaurant and catering services. 

Step 1: Place dark chocolate chips (6.09 oz) and instant coffee (0.12 oz) in a saucepan. On low to medium heat, begin melting the chocolate chips. Once the chips have begun to melt, add the heavy cream (4.09 oz). Stir the chocolate cream mixture until you have a smooth creamy texture. Take off heat and set aside for a later step (cool at least 20 minutes). 

Step 2: In a bowl, combine heavy cream (11.71 oz), vanilla extract (0.11 oz) and confectioner’s sugar (0.43 oz). Using a wire whisk, on low speed, mix items until stiff peaks form. 

Step 3: Gently whisk, on low speed, the chocolate cream into the whipped cream 1 cup at a time until completely combined. Place mousse in pans, 2” full and chill for one hour.  At this time, you can place in piping bags for service – or place in an appropriate serving dish. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Optional: Garnish with fresh raspberries.
