Chocolate mousse and beer are a great match. I made this once and paired it with Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout and it was amazing. This time around I decided to use a beer in the actual recipe. And since chocolate and raspberries are perfect together, I went with a framboise. I decided to try Floris instead of Lindemans since I've never had it before and wanted to try something different. I also didn't know how the recipe would turn out, so I went with something a little less expensive. It ended up working very well. The raspberry is subtle in the mousse but you can definitely taste it. It's also great if you pair it with the beer.
Okay, here's the recipe:
1 12 ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp ground coffee
2 tbsp framboise
Separate egg yolks and whites. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Melt chocolate chips in microwave, stopping every 30 seconds to mix it. Combine the yolks with the sugar and mix into the melted chocolate. Add framboise and coffee to the chocolate mixture. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites. Pour into glasses and put them in the fridge for an hour. The end.
