I know I have said this before, but puddings and cream based desserts like mousse are my favourite. I would always pick them over cake or cupcakes. And you all know how much I love espresso… I could easily have 3 a day!! So, this Espresso and Frangelico Mousse is just up my alley. Frangelico is an Italian hazelnut flavoured liqueur that tastes delicious on its own, combined with other liqueurs to create cocktails or, like in this case, in desserts. Hazelnut goes very well with coffee, so you can imagine how good this mousse tastes! And like all my favourite desserts, it is very easy and fast to make. If you like coffee, this dessert is for you! Enjoy!
Espresso and Frangelico Mousse
Espresso and Frangelico Mousse - a light and fluffy dessert!

Whip the cream and keep it aside in the fridge.
Boil the espresso and 1 tablespoon of the sugar for 5 minutes. The put the fire off and let it cool down.
In the meantime, beat the egg yolks with the remaining sugar, until pale and fluffy.
Slowly add the espresso and keep beating. Then add the Frangelico and mix well.
Pour into serving glasses and refrigerate it for a couple of hours before serving.

This looks and sounds delicious! Coffee and booze? What’s not to love?
I love the Frangelico, but don’t drink coffee is there a way I could substitute some other liquid instead? Would love to try it minus the espresso. I also like puddings but pastries are my weakness.
Hi Bea! I haven’t tried it myself, but you could try with hot chocolate (bring it back to room temperature though or it will melt the cream). Chocolate and hazelnut is a winner combination… it will taste sort of like Nutella. 🙂
