Everyone has a bottle of Irish cream liquor in their cupboard at Christmas, and whether you choose to drink it in coffee, on the rocks, in a cocktail or pour it over your ice cream, it’s a very useful addition to your drinks cabinet.

Personally I like it any of these ways but I particularly like it in a mousse, and this coffee flavoured mousse has just a hint of Irish cream liquor. Serving it in espresso cups makes them ideal to be served as a sweet canapé, or light dessert following a heavy meal. They can be made in advance and kept in the fridge until needed, making them a great dessert to serve over the busy Christmas period when unexpected guests may arrive.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Allow the chocolate to cool for 5 minutes
