    steps to make chocolate mousse


Beat the eggs whites until foamy and stiff peak. When you are done beating the egg whites, it should have a peak at the end of the whisk and should be foamy.
Be sure to use good quality chocolate. Dark chocolate is best to use.
Be sure to not over-mix the chocolat and the ingredients together. It is best to fold the ingredients in, especially the egg whites.
