JULIE’S TIPS & TRICKS:
• This Mocha Chocolate Mousse stays fresh for at least 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
• Always taste the chocolate mousse before you serve it. Depending on how ripe the avocados are and what type you’re using, you might need some extra cacao or sweetener.
