Mocha Mousse Recipe

Carolyn of All Day I Dream About Food shares a great mocha mousse recipe using Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs! The creamy chocolate and mocha flavors combine for a delicious taste that is sure to indulge that chocolate craving.

Servings: 8

Active time: 30 minutes

Total time:


  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 4 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s), separated
  • 1/4 to 1/2 c strongly brewed coffee
  • 6 Tbsp powdered erythritol, divided OR
  • 1/2 c powdered sugar, divided
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3/4 c heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15 drops stevia extract (omit if using sugar)


  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate together, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks together until smooth. When chocolate is lukewarm, whisk in egg yolks. Mixture will become very thick and chocolate will seize. Add ¼ cup strong coffee and whisk vigorously. Continue to add 1 tbsp strong coffee at a time until chocolate mixture becomes smooth (will still be quite thick). Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with 2 tbsp powdered erythritol (or ¼ cup powdered sugar), the salt and the cream of tartar until they hold stiff peaks but are not dry. This may take 10 minutes or so. Use a stand mixer if you have one.
  4. In another bowl, beat cream with remaining erythritol (or remaining sugar), the vanilla and stevia (if using) until it holds soft peaks.
  5. Stir a couple of large spoonfuls of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it. Then carefully fold the chocolate mixture back into the egg whites. Fold in the cream thoroughly but gently. Spoon or pipe into serving dish or individual serving cups and chill at least 2 hours.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
