Chocolate Mousse is a basic dessert in everyone's repertoire, but to get a light and airy texture it's important to get a really stable egg white foam, but no worries it will be perfect!


Since Halloween parties are on the corner, and after you've already seen the idea of Chocolate-chestnut truffle spiders, this time we will turn this simple dessert into a great Halloween TREAT! These creative moments always help me to relax, focus only on my little edible creatures and nothing else, good old movies or music as background noise... I wish I could do this more often!

Halloween decoration
