Before we even start let me say. this goes against everything I think, say or do when it comes to food. I hate anything that is processed or not real. I really hate Cool Whip. That being said, this is one of the best mousse recipes I have found. Quick, Easy and Delicious!
Since I have completely gone off the deep end on the processed food scale I ate this with my new box of Girl Scout Shortbread Cookies. Heaven!

2 cups Cool Whip, plus more for serving
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used dark chocolate)
1 tablespoon instant coffee (I used expresso instant)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons Kahlua
Chocolate sprinkles (I used chocolate shavings)
Wafer cookies (I used Girl Scout Shortbread Cookies)
In a medium bowl, whip the Cool Whip with the heavy cream until soft peaks form. With a rubber spatula, stir in the cocoa power, instant coffee, and sugar; blend well. I mixed these together before stirring into the Cool Whip and cream mixture. Add the Kahlua and stir thoroughly with the spatula. Put into 6 to 8 dessert cups and chill in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, dust the top of each serving with chocolate sprinkles and crown with a dollop of Cool Whip. I topped with Cool Whip and topped with chocolate shavings. Serve with wafer cookies, or whatever you like.
