Wash, dry and halve the strawberries. Put a few strawberries into glass cups. Roughly chop the chocolate couverture and melt in a bain-marie with the cognac and espresso.
Remove from the heat. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks with the vanilla sugar until thick and foamy and the sugar has dissolved. Whip the well chilled cream until stiff.
Beat the egg whites with the sugar until they form stiff peaks. Add the egg yolk mixture to the chocolate and stir in with a whisk. Place the whipped cream on top of the chocolate mixture and stir in quickly with the whisk before the mixture sets.
Carefully fold in the beaten egg whites. Put the mousse into the glass cups, add a few strawberry halves and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Serve garnished with cantucci.
