Chocolate Mousse


Chocolate lovers?….You need to try this, It’s a classic chocolate mousse made by me and my wife. I prepared the mousse and she finished the toppings. I was very eager to make this because it’s been a long time since I had one, the last time was maybe 4 years ago. So here it is, I am happy to share to you guys my favorite chocolate recipe……..Did you know that chocolate mousse main ingredients are heavy cream, and this cream is excellent sources of  protein & calcium.  This is a very helpful nutrients. For instance, Calcium is a good aid in maintaining bone health, dental care, prevention of colon cancer, reduces obesity, etc. While protein helps our body to build and repair tissues…..
