Are you looking for a quick dessert hack with chocolate flavor? Chocolate mousse is a delicious, light, and airy dessert that can be made in less than an hour. It is perfect for a summer party or a holiday season. The key to making a good chocolate mousse is to use good-quality chocolate. I prefer to use a bar of dark chocolate with at least 70% cacao.
