Instructions
Crust

  3. Put the dough in a floured mold (18cm diameter) and press well against the base and sides.

  4. Puncture the base with a fork over the entire surface and bake for 12-15 minutes or until crispy and golden, let cool.

Chocolate
  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a water bath and process all the ingredients until you have a smooth and homogeneous mixture. Put on the crust and let cool.

Mousse
  1. In a large bowl beat the aquafaba until snow point, that is, when turning the bowl do not fall. While in a small pot or in the microwave heat the syrup, without it coming to boil.
