Cappuccino Mousse

I wanted a filling for my Super Bowl cupcakes, and didn’t want something as heavy as frosting. I thought this I had made once as a dessert, and thought it would work wonderfully inside the cupcake. This mousse is so delicious, you could eat the entire bowl before they get in the cupcakes!
