VALENTINE DAY is gone and by now all the lovers out there must have blotted with hell lot of desserts, chocolates and other Vday goodies. Yeah, so did I 🙂 I enjoyed this special day with one special love of my life…FOOD! Though i don’t need any particular day to celebrate my love for food, but as you see God and more often people give us enough reasons to express love …love and some more love towards your beloveds. Valentine Day signifies love and no love is complete without chocolate and the most romantic fruit, that particularly arrives this season, yes you got me right…Strawberries!
Now you must be wondering what is my today’s post all about? Well it’s all about recycling, reusing, creating new recipes and more over it’s all about love for food. I believe a true food lover never wishes to waste anything that is edible. Just like you even i hate wasting food, specially if it’s one of my favorite, i don’t mind finishing the left overs.
Following the rituals, i made a heavy duty, super calorie loaded, rich and generous strawberry and chocolate chip loaf covered with dark chocolate ganache on Valentines day. The cake was amazing and was finished in no time, but the one killer stuff that didn’t finish was the ganache. Yes, i got around 3-4 cups of ganache left in the fridge. So before it was too late to recycle it, i thought to make a delectable and sinful dessert named CHOCOLATE AND COFFEE MOUSSE. I started making a mousse but it was somewhere closely related to a Pannacotta. But still i would call it a mousse as it was soft and porous from inside.
Let’s check out the recipe and some pictures first.
