Pecan Chocolate Mousse

 

I am not sure what is the chemistry behind it but since the birth of my child, I’ve been craving chocolate mousse.

 

Weirdly enough, all my pregnancy was about milk chocolate (the dark chocolate flavour was too strong to handle). But I am now back to my old tastes (thank god!) and I can’t get enough dark chocolate.

 

This one can be vegan or vegetarian, up to you to choose the option that suits you best ;)

 

It’s pretty easy to make and if you are using stevia or xylitol, it’s not going to rise your blood sugar levels through the roof. It’s a very nice and delicious snack. In fact, personally, this is my go to go snack at the moment :P
