How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

If you want to get your chocolate mousse right, follow our advice! 1. Don't raise the temperature too much to melt your chocolate. Favour the water bath [US: double boiler] technique: you put a bowl with your pieces of chocolate on top of a saucepan of boiling water, and you let the steam heat up the chocolate. 2. In order to avoid putting too much sugar, simply replace it with a teaspoon of honey. 3. Add an egg yolk to the chocolate and cream mix. Careful! The mix mustn't be too hot, otherwise it's going to cook the yolk!

Getting that for you now...
