Step by step recipe

6Beat 200 g egg white with 1 pinch fine (or table) salt.Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : etape 25
7Important: the egg white should not be beaten as stiff as for meringue, but only to the "soft" stage, where it just about sticks to the whisk.

This is the secret of a successful chocolate mousse.

Finish by folding in 100 g caster sugar.

You can keep a small quantity of the ground toasted hazelnuts back to use for decorating the top. Another option for decorating: a little candied orange or grapefruit peel or candied fruit.
