  • directions

  • For the Crust: Preheat oven to 300°F

  • Directions

  • Break up the cookies into small pieces using a food processor or a zip top bag and mallet.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the crushed cookies and melted butter using a fork. Press the cookie mixture into the bottome of a 9-inch pie pan. Place in the oven to bake for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.

  • For Flourless Chocolate Cake: Raise oven temperature to 350°F.

  • Over a double boiler, melt chocolate chips with butter, and stir to combine. Remove from heat. Add the coffee, vanilla and salt, and stir to combine. Set aside to cool.

  • In a separate bowl, add 6 egg yolks with one cup of sugar, and mix until combined.

  • Add the chocolate mixture to egg mixture.

  • In a large bowl, whisk whites to soft peaks. Then, fold the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture.

  • Transfer chocolate mixture into the baked and cooled crust.

  • Place in the oven to bake for 35 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely. (The cake mixture will fall, making space for the mousse to sit on top.)

  • For Chocolate Mousse: Meanwhile, combine the chocolate chips, coffee, butter and rum in a double boiler. Stir to melt and combine.

  • Pour the whipping cream into the bowl of a stand mixer, and place both in the refrigerator to chill.

  • In a separate bowl, add gelatin and cover with a 1/4 cup of the chilled whipping cream. Place this bowl over indirect heat, just enough to melt the gelatin.

  • Let gelatin cool off.

  • Add the gelatin mixture to chocolate, and fold in. Beat the remaining cold whipping cream to medium peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate.

  • For Assembly: Place mousse mixture on top of cooled flourless cake. (Feel free using your hand to push down the cake to make room for mouse to sit.)
