Step by step recipe:


1
In a pan pour 250 ml whole milk, 250 ml cream and ½ vanilla pod.

Bring to the boil. Remove from heat, cover and leave to stand about 10 minutes.

2
Meanwhile, break 200 g chocolate, then with a large broad-bladed knife, chop roughly.

The aim is to get chocolate pieces as small as possible so that they melt quickly in hot milk.

14
Serve without waiting, otherwise nuts and grapefruit peel will lose their crunch.

Add a stip of candied grapefruit peel, and for example finger biscuits.

Remarks:

If you don't have a gourmet whisk, make a classic chantilly cream with double or whipping cream (not pouring cream) that you mix with coffee+whisky+syrup, and then whip as usual. You can also use a simple chantilly.

You can replace Whisky by Bailey's, the mousse will be a bit less alcoholic.

If you will think that there are not enough photos of preparing mousse, you're right. I have forgot to take them when preparing recipe. I'll do it next time, I promise...

Home made, but this recipe is warmly dedicated to my friend Conor from Dublin, who taught me how to make Irish Coffee in AltaMira a long time ago.
