13 Chocolate cream with a crunch, irish coffee mousse : Photo of step #13And top with a layer of Irish coffee mousse. 5 min.
14 Chocolate cream with a crunch, irish coffee mousse : Photo of step #14Serve 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...
