    4      tablespoons   Unsalted butter
      1/2  cup           Sugar

    1 1/4  cups          Whipping cream -- chilled
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla extract
 
 FOR SAUCE: Combine whipping cream, sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder and unsalted
butter in heavy medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium-low heat, whisking
constantly until butter melts and sugar and cocoa dissolve. Remove from heat and
whisk in vanilla extract and instant coffee powder. Cool sauce. (Can be prepared
1 week ahead. Cover and refrigerate) FOR MOUSSE: Line 9x5 loaf pan with
parchment paper.
 Combine Milky Way pieces, semisweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate and unsalted
butter in large heatproof bowl set over pan of simmering water. Stir constantly
until melted (mixture will look grainy).
 Remove bowl from over water and cool mixture slightly.
 Combine sugar and water in heavy small saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar
dissolves. Increase heat to high, and boil syrup until termperature reaches 230~
on candy thermometer. Meanwhile, beat egg whites and cream of tartar to soft
peaks in bowl. Gradually pour boiling syrup into egg whites, beating until stiff
peaks form and whites are cool, about 5 minutes. Using rubber spatula, fold
whites into chocolate mixture in 2 additions. Beat chilled whipping cream and
vanilla extract to soft peaks in medium bowl. Using rubber spatula, fold cream
into chocolate mixture in 2 additions. Spoon mousse into prepared pan. Cover with
plastic wrap & freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.
 (Can be prepared 1 week ahead. Keep frozen.) Heat sauce to lukewarm over low
heat. Remove plastic wrap from top of mousse. Invert mousse onto platter. Remove
pan and peel off parchment paper. Slice mousse crosswise into 12 slices. Cut each
slice diagonally into 2 triangles. For each serving arrange 2 mousse triangles on
plate; spoon warm chocolate sauce over and around mousse and serve.
