Mocha Mousse with a hint of Grappa


My brother and his wife were visiting us last weekend for a  game night.

Yes, we love games. Board games, card games, silly games, funny games… you name it!

For dinner we had a raclette. Do you know raclette? It’s basically sliced cheese topped with mushrooms, corn, ham, pickled veg and much more and then melted and poured over potatoes. Quite simple, but yummy comfort food for cold days.

But it called for a lighter dessert and I went for a mousse. This one I found in a Betty Bossi cookbook. Fluffy cream mixed with mocha chocolate and grappa. Ooo I love some schnaps after eating too much and I thought this one would be perfect after overeating on cheese.

The recipe is super simple, light and because I used chocolate with hazelnut brittle a few crunchy bits were left in. I really enjoyed it.
