If you want to get your chocolate mousse right, follow our advice! 1. Don't raise the temperature too much to melt your chocolate. Favour the water bath [US: double boiler] technique: you put a bowl with your pieces of chocolate on top of a saucepan of boiling water, and you let the steam heat up the chocolate. 2. In order to avoid putting too much sugar, simply replace it with a teaspoon of honey. 3. Add an egg yolk to the chocolate and cream mix. Careful! The mix mustn't be too hot, otherwise it's going to cook the yolk!
