We used to make this recipe a lot when we were in greece.  It's the best
chocolate mousse I've tried. I dunno exactly who created it first:
it's a hand-me-down (the words are broken, perhaps they're better left


200 grams (.45 lb) semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 cup water
5 eggs (seperated)
1 tsp.  instant coffee (if desired.
vanila flavoring (extract or powder)
2 tbsp. conf. sugar.

Melt the chocolate in a pan, over low heat, with a few tbspns of
water.  Beat the egg yolks and add them to the chocolate with the
instant coffee.
Beat the egg whites with the conf. sugar until thick, and then
beat a few minutes more.
Add the beaten egg whites to the melted chocolate and *slowly*
mix it in.

After that, we usually place it in small, glass, personal-size
bowls, and refrigerate until it gets thick.  You could also put
it in one large one, or, for a formal occasion, champagne
