Simple, elegant and classic! Mousse au chocolat is the quintessential French dessert. When you travel to France, no matter where you eat in any region, you will most likely be offered this divine “foamy chocolate” (mousse means “foam” in French). Rich, creamy, dark and dreamy, chocolate mousse is not only a perfect gourmet treat, it is also one of the simplest to make. The exact date or year that chocolate mousse debuted in France is unknown, but its popularity has certainly soared in the US over the years—April 3 is officially National Chocolate Mousse Day. Remember to celebrate your chocolate!
