Ingredients

  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon shortening
  • Chocolate jimmies
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half cream
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • LATTE CREAM:
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a microwave, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip rims of four parfait glasses in chocolate; sprinkle with jimmies. Let stand until set.
In a small saucepan, combine the cream, egg yolks, vanilla, coffee granules and remaining chocolate chips. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture reaches 160° or is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Cool, stirring several times.
In a small bowl, dissolve coffee granules in 1 tablespoon whipping cream. Add remaining cream; beat cream mixture until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Fold 1-1/2 cups of cream mixture into cooled chocolate mixture.
Spoon about 1/4 cup chocolate mousse into each parfait glass; spoon or pipe about 1/4 cup cream mixture over mousse. Repeat layers. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Yield: 4 servings.

"Easy and elegant presentation. Super decadent and rich. I only made half a recipe for two servings but next time I would even divide that amount into 4 smaller servings. I used elible silver glitter on the rims of martini glasses for a New Year's Eve dinner and it was really a dazzler!"

"This was absolutely perfect for a luncheon dessert. We served a mixed veggie salad followed by this deadly dessert! There wasn't a smidge left in each serving glass. Raves all around!"
