Chocolate that is smooth and rich in flavor is ideal for using in mousse.
You can use either milk or dark chocolate, but if you use milk, make certain that it is at least 35% cacao.
What’s special about this recipe is that it’s cooked. Most mousses are not cooked, which can be a problem for anyone with a compromised immune system. While cooking adds an extra step, you don’t need to be concerned about using eggs.
