Chocolate, despite the bad reputation is extremely beneficial. Packed with antioxidants and has that fat fighting kind of fat, this delicious food isn't only a treat, but its also good for you.
So when my husband introduced me to this recipe as a great ending to my birthday dinner, I knew that I finally found the dessert.
I must add that this mousse isn't like those other heavy filling mousse you stuff down your through just because it's there. No, this mousse is tasty, light and like I said, A perfect way to end your dinner.

12 oz bittersweer chocolate (not baking)
1 Tsp instant coffee granules, dissolved in 3 Tsp boiling water
