Mousse au Chocolat
1/4 C semisweet chocolate chips
1 TBS coffee-flavored liqueur
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 C heavy whipping cream
1 TBS granulated sugar
2 TBS whipped cream
In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips with coffee-flavored liqueur; stir until smooth, about five minutes. Stir a small amount of chocolate mixture into egg yolk; return chocolate and egg mixture to saucepan, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until slightly thickened, about two minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract. Cool, stirring several times. Beat heavy cream in a large bowl until it begins to thicken. Stir in sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream mixture into cooled chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight. Garnish with whipped cream when ready to serve.
