Coffee and chocolate is a fabulous and sophisticated combination that adults seem to love by instinct. The coffee mousse on coconut crust highlights this wonderful combination. A soft coffee-chocolate mousse flavoured with honey, and set on a crunchy coconut crust… doesn’t that sound heavenly! a pleasing garnishing of castor sugar and cocoa powder makes the dessert look very appealing too.
