Whipped Tiramisu Coffee Chocolate Mousse.
[this post is in partnership with Harry and David. I’m creating some wonderful recipes with their tiramisu whole bean coffee this season and I can’t wait for you guys to see what I’ve come up with! xoxo]
It’s like I died and went to chocolate coffee heaven!
Even before I liked coffee, I used to be obsessed with going into coffee shops and smelling the whole beans. I did this as a young child and was so fascinated by the wild and crazy dessert flavors that the beans could take on. In fact, you’re probably not surprised that it might have been the sole reason that I wanted to like coffee.
My parents always bought whole beans and ground them every week and every single time, I begged them to get the Irish cream or the mudslide or even just the vanilla flavors. I was convinced that they would taste 100% like dessert because they smelled so fabulous.
Much to my dismay, they never bought the flavored coffee. Never ever. But! My grandma would sometimes buy the flavored espresso packets (these came in small foil bags and I never see them anymore, but I swear they were a thing in the 90s) and after special dinners, we’d always have it. I would ask for a cup, drown it in cream and sugar, take two sips and be so disappointed because it didn’t taste like cake.
I’d never learn.
I was super excited when I got to choose a flavor of the full bean coffee from Harry and David. Tiramisu was an obvious choice (having just made the MOST delicious tiramisu-inspired recipe for my cookbook, I couldn’t resist, even though I was super tempted by the chocolate cherry and cherry vanilla (!!!!)) and I think I inhaled the scent of the beans for a full five minutes before grinding them up.
Wow wow wow. My crazy love for this coffee is intense.
I might love it even more because I made it in my French press since I don’t have a traditional coffee maker. For some reason I find French press coffee to be so good – maybe only because I feel cool and hipster-ish using my press. Shocking.
Since I partnered with Harry and David to make a recipe, I didn’t want it to be JUST coffee. Or even a drink! The only logical use for my coffee was a decadent mousse. One that would make every single resolution fly out the window, but was also rich enough to have just a few bites. I’m sure a few bites have negative calories, it’s a Jessica law.
I whipped this mousse a little more than my milk chocolate mousse recipe and oh my gosh – it’s like a chocolate CLOUD. It’s almost lighter and fluffier than traditional mousse. It’s super rich, but since it’s whipped, it just feels so light.
Like it is a light dessert! We can consider this a light dessert, right? Please? Just me?
I knew you’d come through.
Tiramisu Coffee Chocolate Mousse
- 8 ounces high-quality milk chocolate chopped
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons freshly brewed Harry and David Tiramisu Coffee
- 1 cup cold heavy cream
- 2 large egg yolks
- 1 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons freshly brewed Harry and David Tiramisu Coffee
- extra whipped cream for topping
- unsweetened cocoa for sprinkling
- coffee beans for garnish
- Combine chocolate, coffee and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on medium heat for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave for 30 seconds again. Stir constantly until all chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
- Place cream in the bowl of your electric mixer. Beat until peaks form and you have whipped cream. I like to have firm peaks here and whip the cream to a thicker consistency as I find it makes the chocolate even lighter when folded in.
- Add egg yolks, sugar and coffee to a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved, mixture is opaque and light yellow and has thickened and can coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in melted chocolate mixture. Place saucepan in a bowl of ice water and whisk constantly until chocolate is cooled.
- Remove whipped cream from the fridge and fold it into the chocolate mixture. Once whipped cream is completely folded in, evenly pour mousse into either two, four or six glasses depending on the size. This can serve six if served in 1/3 to 1/2 cup servings. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Top with fresh whipped cream, a sprinkle of cocoa powder and a coffee bean!

This looks so divine! Chocolate and coffee are one of the world’s most perfect flavor combinations.
normally i’m a little eh about chocolate mousse; it’s delicious, but sometimes it’s a bit plain, and i just opt to have some chocolate instead. this sounds delicious though and i love how much coffee is in it!
It’s looking good and sounds good x

Oh my! Jessica this mousse looks and sounds amazing! I am not a huge mousse lover but my husband is crazy for it and i know he would love this!!
I totally remember those foul instant espressos! I loved the amaretto one as a kid :) can’t wait to give this recipe a try
haha yes!! so glad someone else knows what i’m talking about!
Hi, Jessica – Chocolate mousse is one of my all time favorite dessert and adding the tiramisu coffee flavor must amazing!
Well these just look totally insane!
I too was a disappointed kid when it came to coffee. The smell was insane, and I could drink it up – but I couldn’t stand the taste! When I was about 16 I asked my Mum to make me a weak, sweet coffee – and when I tasted it, I thought she was playing a joke on me! It took a lot of commitment to make myself like coffee, but once I did, I never turned back! Yum!
have you tried the varieties at Whole Foods? they have L’Orange… to DIE for!!! and Southern Pecan.
crud, i mean Fresh Market. we have them in the south.
Wow, this looks and sounds absolutely amazing! Not only does the coffee itself sound so indulgent and flavorful, but this dessert takes it all to a new level! So impressive!
I was never a fan of tiaramisu until I tried in in Florence. Now I realize I just hadn’t had good tiramisu! I’m on a mission to make one as good as that!
Jessica – these looks absolutely delicious! I’m not a big fan of drinking coffee but tiramisu is another matter – and in chocolate mousse form – yes please!! Thank you for sharing the recipe – I can’t wait to try them!
This mousse looks amazing! I wish I was eating this to get me through the Monday’s right now.
The Happy Flammily
