How to make it
- For the mousse. whip the heavy cream to soft peaks and set aside
- Whip the egg yolks to ribbon stage
- Heat the honey until it starts to boil and quickly whip it into the egg yolks until the egg mixture is fluffy and no longer warm
- Stir in the coffee liqueur.
- Melt the both of the chocolate in a double boiler until melted.
- Incorporate the warm chocolate into the egg yolk mixture.
- Fold the heavy cream into the egg yolk mixture.
- For the florentina cups. Boil the butter, sugar, honey, and heavy cream until it has reached a temperature of 240. Do not over stir this mixture, it will crystalize if you do.
- Once it has hit a temperature of 240. Crush the sliced almonds in your hand and add it into the mixture.
- Also add in you ground almonds or hazelnuts, cocoa nib, and bread flour and mix together.
- Use a tablespoon to scoop the florentina batter on to a silpat and mash it flat to get a circle. Bake at 375F until brown.
- When removing the florentina cups off the silpat let it rest until it is ready to be pliable and will not fall apart. Use a metal spatula to get the florentina off and mold over a ladle or bowl. If the florentina has fully set you can return it to the oven to let it melt down again and mold.
- After you have shaped the cups take the mousse and pipe it into the cups. And you can make whip cream to top off the chocolate coffee mousse.
