Chocolate Kahlua Mousse
6 servings

3 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sifted cocoa
2 tablespoons Kahlua
1 1/2 cups whipping cream (35%)

In a medium bowl beat with mixer egg yolks and sugar until thick and a pale lemon color. Beat in cocoa. Place bowl over saucepan of gently simmering water. Beat 5-minutes or until mixture darkens and beaters leave a trail. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur, set aside.

In a separate bowl whip cream until it holds stiff peaks. Stir 1/2 cup of the whipped cream into cocoa mixture to lighten it. Gently fold remaining whipped cream into cocoa mixture until well combined.
