How to make it

  • In a small chilled bowl, whip heavy cream to full volume.
  • Chill for 1 hour.
  • In a small pan, combine water, Kahlua and gelatin and let stand for 1 minute.
  • Add powdered sugar, instant coffee and chocolate chips.
  • Over low heat stir until chocolate chips are melted.
  • Bring to room temperature.
  • Gently fold the chocolate mixture into the whipped cream.
  • Chill for 1 hour.
  • Spoon or pipe 2 teaspoons of filling into each Fillo Shell.
  • Garnish with shredded coconut. Serve immediately.
  • Tip: When the mousse has set, just put it all into large baggie, pushing it down to one corner of the bag and twist the top, squeezing the mousse tightly into that corner. With scissors, cut a small hole and squeeze the mousse directly into either the phyllo cups, on top of cupcakes, into small bowls or on to cake or into a cooked and cooled pie shell.

    Good luck, Dond! And yes, I know the price of mousse these days. Outrageous, isn't it?

    You are so good with piping bag usage.For answering Dond comment,folding the chocolate gelatin mixture in room temperature will not spoil the chilled cream.Thanks for sharing..great one.

    So, you're saying to fold the chocolate/gelatin mixture into the whipped cream as soon as it reaches room temp.? I just want to make sure before I try this (since I'll probably use regular bittersweet chocolate -- and I guess I don't have to tell you what that stuff is selling for these days). I think I might also try making some cream puff shells from scratch, just for the cult of experience and because I have so much free time on my hands. Wish me luck.
