"One of my favorite desserts. Now, I'm not a big fan of sweets; but, this is a nice light dessert, which even I enjoy. It's perfect to make ahead; and, really easy to make too. For Valentines Day ... Add a chocolate dipped strawberry on top - and, a dollop of whipped cream. A perfect date night dessert. The cooking time includes the times for the mousse to chill and firm up."
Ricotta ... Puree the ricotta in a blender or small food processor until smooth. Then, transfer to a bowl.
Chocolate ... Personally, I use the microwave. Thirty (30) second intervals, until melted, stirring often - in a glass bowl. Once melted; set to the side to cool a bit. You can also use a double boiler; or, you can use a glass bowl, set on a pot of boiling water. All methods works. The microwave is just so easy and quick.
Once the chocolate is melted, and off the heat; stir in the espresso (or coffee).
Mousse ... Add the lightly cooled melted chocolate to the ricotta; and, mix until combined. Then, fold in the whipped topping; trying NOT to over mix. Once everything is combined; taste - and, add any sugar is necessary ... I usually don't find it necessary to add any sugar. Cover with plastic wrap; and, refrigerate until chilled and firm - at least 3-4 hours.
Serve and ENJOY! ... I like to serve this in fancy martini or wine glasses - your choice. Spoon the mousse in the glass; or, you can pipe it in too ... Then, top with a strawberry dipped in chocolate, chocolate shavings if you want; and, a dollop of whipped cream. Really decadent and easy - and, you can dress it up as much as you want!
