This is a cool and light dessert perfect to have after a lovely meal....
Coffee ice cream is my all time favorite one. So when ever we go to my favorite creamery near my house I used to order the coffee sundae. They mix-up salted almonds, toffee and caramel sauce to coffee ice cream. YUM! YUM!
So the whole idea of this dessert came from this ice cream flavors. We loved this a lot. It was not heavy to the tummy but yet very satisfying.
I have used candy melts to make the chocolate cups. Regular chocolate chips can also be used to make these cups. Candy melts are really very good for making some cute candies and dessert out of it. They hold the shape very well.
Milk Chocolate Candy Melts - ½ cupMelt the candy melts according to the packet instruction. Line the muffin tins with cupcake liners. Using a small brush, coat the cupcake liners with melted candy melts. Make a thick coating. Refrigerate this for few hours. I kept it for overnight.
Heavy whipping cream - ½ cup
Instant coffee powder - ½ to 1 teaspoon according to our taste
Salted almonds - few
Toffee bits - 2 tablespoon
Sugar - 1 tablespoon
Vanilla - ½ teaspoon
Now remove the cupcake liners slowly with out breaking the Candy Melts coating.
In the meanwhile start whipping up the cream. Add coffee powder, sugar and vanilla and whip the cream until stiff peaks are formed.
Next gently fold the chopped salted almonds and toffee bits to the coffee mousse. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (airtight) and refrigerate until served.
For assembling this dessert, Place the chocolate cup on a plate and pipe the coffee mousse into the cup.
