1. Break both the chocolates into chunks and place them in the top of a
double boiler over simmering water. Heat until melted, stirring
occasionally. Set aside and cool to lukewarm.

2. Whip the cream until it is stiff and doubled in volume. Set it aside.

3. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Then add the
confectioners' sugar 1 T. at a time, beating constantly until the whites
are stiff but not dry. Set them aside.

4. Combine the praline paste, salt, and creme de cacao in a large mixing
bowl. Stir well, and add the egg yolks. Whisk until smooth.

5. Add the melted butter, espresso and melted chocolate to the praline
paste mixture, and blend thoroughly. Then, using a rubber spatula, fold in
the whipped cream. Finally, very gently, fold in the egg whites.

6. Spoon the mousse into individual bowls or a large serving bowl. Cover
and refrigerate for 8 hours before serving.
