Chocolate Fills Deep Needs

Chocolate Mousse

12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
4 Tablespooons butter or margarine
Dash of vanilla extract
4 Tablespoons Sabra (a chocolate-orange liqueur)
2 Tablespoons very strong coffee
6 eggs, separated, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar

Slowly melt chocolate, butter, vanilla, coffee, and liqueur in double boiler over simmering water. Cool to room temperature.

Beat egg whiles in large bowl until frothy. Continue beating while adding 1/4 cup sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form.

In separate bowl, whip yolks with remaining 1/4 cup sugar until they double in volume and form a pale yellow ribbon.

Using a spatula, fold egg-yolk mixture into chocolate mixture. Then fold 1/4 of the egg whites into the chocolate. Gently fold the remaining whites into chocolate mixture. Spoon mousse into serving dishes.

Chill 2 to 3 hours. Indulge!
