Mascarpone and Espresso Mousse

A dessert to impress with tomorrow night at the new year party. This combo of chocolate and mascarpone with the coffee works really well and is the perfect ending to a new years feast!

For 4 greedy people

100 gr dark chocolate, 70%
125 gr mascarpone cheese, room temperature
2 tbsp powdered sugar
4 tbsp espresso, cooled
1 1/2 dl cream

4 tbsp cream, whipped
chopped dark chocolate
2 macaroons

1. Melt the chocolate over a bain marie (waterbath). Whip the mascarpone and the sugar together in a bowl. Add the espresso coffee and melted chocolate and mix well with a spatula. Whip the cream and then fold it together with the cheese and chocolate mixture. Pour into serving moulds and cool over night in the fridge.

2. Decorate with the whipped cream, chocolate and macaroons before serving.
