Mocha Mousse Brownies Recipe

Chocolate is one of my favorite foods, and these dark chocolate goodies are the perfect pairing of coffee-flavored mousse and fudge brownie. My friends and family love them.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings


  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream


  • 1. In a microwave, melt the chips and butter; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Combine hot water and coffee granules; add to chocolate mixture. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking powder; gradually add to chocolate mixture.
  • 2. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake and brownies will be thin). Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. For mousse, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in milk and melted chips. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Cook and stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in coffee granules until dissolved.
  • 4. In a small bowl, beat whipping cream until slightly thickened. Beat in gelatin. Fold into cream cheese mixture. Spread over brownies. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until set. Cut into squares. Yield: 2 dozen.
