I love chestnuts, do you? They are really tasty, a total sin, and with chocolate, no words…you know what, I better not give you the recipe hahaha JK, it’s made for you, to be dazzled by it, making a mousse was never this easy, and with this cocoa nibs, it is just divine, they add a crunchy texture, when you are eating the mousse its super soft, then suddenly this cocoa crunch, which is a little bitter.

2. Then whisk the cream into stiff peaks, add the vanilla and with enveloping movements we incorporate the chocolate and chestnut puree.
3. Place the mousse into individual cups and sprinkle with cocoa nibs.
4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before eating.

If you like, you can add some sugar, It didn’t seem it needed it to me, but I don’t like desserts super sweet, so taste them, and if you think it’s necessary, add some powder sugar, If you can’t find the cocoa Nibs, you can add small pieces of chocolate or red fruits.
