    8      Ounce         Sweet or semi sweet baking
                         chocolate -- melted with
      1/4  Cup           Strong coffee
    3      Ounce         Unsalted butter (6 Tb)
    3                    Egg yolks
    1      Cup           Heavy cream (make sure it’s
                         the heavy variety)
    3                    Egg whites

 Beat the soft butter into the smoothly melted chocolate.  One by one, beat in the
egg yolks.  Beat the cream over ice until it leaves light traces on the surface. 
Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. While beating, sprinkle in the
sugar by sp
 oonfuls and continue beating until stiff shining peaks are formed.  Scrape the
chocolate mixture down the side of the egg-white bowl, and delicately fold in the
whipped cream. Turn the mousse into attractive serving bowls. Cover and chill
several hours. 
 You may wish to decorate the mousse with swirls of whipped cream, or to pass
whipped cream separately.
