Caramel Coffee Mousse

I love desserts, any I go to...the first thing we sisters check out...The Dessert Counter, and mousse is my favorite... I know the mousse at restaurants are made with raw eggs, I am totally fine with that...But somehow I DO NOT trust myself with raw eggs...that is why I prefer making mousse using gelatine...I know ..I know ...gelatine is made from animal tissues...but my entire family acts dumb,deaf and blind when that issue comes up...coz we all love mousse.

    1. hi
      add the whipped cream into the coffee caramel mixture along with vanilla and keep in the freezer...don not let it set completely(it tends to happens coz of the gelatin) and remove from freezer and whip till smooth(this particular step is said to give a nice jelly like consistency to the mousse)
      hope this was helpful
