Ingredients

Mousse

Cream Topping

Instructions

  • Chop the chocolate finely and place it in a heat-resistant bowl. Heat the coconut milk and coffee in a saucepan until lightly simmering but not boiling, whisk well.
  • Whisk the mixture until the chocolate is melted through. Add the whiskey, maple syrup, and sea salt and stir well. Set aside and allow to come to room temperature.
  • To a clean large bowl add the aquafaba and cream of tartar. Use an electric whisk/stand mixer to beat for about 8 minutes until stiff. Use a spatula to carefully fold the whipped aquafaba into the cooled chocolate mixture, one large spoonful at a time. Once all of the ingredients have been incorporated, transfer the mousse into serving jars and place it in the fridge to set for 4 hours (or overnight if preferred).
  • To make the cream topping, add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and gently beat with an electric or handheld whisk until smooth. Spoon the cream on top of the mousse and garnish it with chocolate shavings.
  • Store in airtight jars and consume within 3 days.

Notes

  • Chilled coconut milk: Refrigerate the tin of coconut milk overnight, then only use the thick cream from the top of the can.
  • Aquafaba: The liquid part from tinned chickpeas.
