This recipe is easy to make, but it requires attention. Since it contains egg, you need to cook the mixture in a very low heat until it reaches the right temperature. You have to be very careful and attentive, as you don’t want the mixture to become scrambled eggs. Making this homemade chocolate mousse is absolutely worth it. I promise! If you love eating sweets, make sure to give it a try.
