Simple chocolate mousse tips
The chocolate will be melted with a bain marie or double boiler. This is just using indirect heat to melt the chocolate so that it doesn’t burn and is easily regulated. When whipping the egg whites, use clean utensils as any drop of egg yolk will deflate the beautiful egg white peaks. When mixing the chocolate with the egg yolks, add a very small bit at a time until the eggs and choclate is the same temperature, This will ensure that the eggs don’t scramble.
