National Chocolate Mousse Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Chocolate Mousse Day - Today is National Chocolate Mousse Day!

A French word that literally means "froth" or "foam," mousse is both rich and airy—combining the best of both dessert worlds. The secret to its cloud-like texture is beaten egg whites or whipped cream.

Julia Child is often credited with making the perfect chocolate mousse. Her precise recipe includes eggs, dark-brewed coffee, butter, bittersweet chocolate, dark rum, and vanilla extract.

And as cookbook author David Lebovitz says, "Since I am not one to argue with Julia, these individual mousses do not need any adornment once you are ready to serve. A spoon should suffice!"
