On April 3rd every year, people around the world break their diets just to celebrate chocolate mousse day.

This treat created around the 1800s was considered a divine dish that was reserved for savory dishes like fish, meat, and vegetables.

Shockingly, chocolate was first mixed into the invention in the early 1900s, creating the classic chocolate mousse we know today.

If you are planning to make some mousse today, then remember that there are three key components that can make or break a good mousse; the base, binder, and aerator. The base which holds the chocolate flavor, the binder such as gelatine, and the aerator of beaten white eggs or substituted with whipped cream.

Don’t forget to garnish the dessert with fruits, chocolate flakes, nuts, different sauces and top it with whipped cream.

When people ask you about your diet today, inform them that chocolate mousse is a good source of calcium, vitamin A and B12, and that chocolate has many cancer-fighting antioxidants.

So, celebrate the day and make your favorite type of mousse for your friends and family, but if you feel that your culinary skills are rusty, then drive by your favorite store and buy one instead.
