Decadent chocolate mousse with a little Kahlua kick.
Vintage recipe from 1987 Kahlua advertising
1 lb. dark sweet chocolate, cut into pieces
3 oz. butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup Kahlua
1 tsp. instant coffee powder
2 cups whipping cream
3 egg whites
Melt chocolate and butter in top of double boiler set over simmering water. In large bowl, combine sugar, yolks, Kahlua and coffee. Blend chocolate mixture into this. In another bowl., whip cream until stiff, gently fold into chocolate mixture; blend well. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold into chocolate cream. Refrigerate overnight. Serve in goblets or bowl, as shown. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
Speaking of decadent... I don't know the story behind this old photo, but I'm sure it's nothing our mothers would have approved of.
