The weekend is here, and it’s time to share something sweet at the table. Today we will make a chocolate mousse, a classic for "chocoholics".The mousse combines the intense flavor of chocolate with a delicious inner texture filled with air bubbles. Additionally, it is an easy dessert or afternoon snack to prepare. You can use whatever chocolate you prefer, but ideally it should have over 70% cocoa.We will thereby avoid it being too sweet and will not use sugar, as the chocolate contains its own sugar which is more than enough.
