AN EASY WAY TO IMPRESS!
I remember Mom making chocolate mousse when I was a kid. Like my own daughter now, I had 1,000 questions for her. I thought it was called pudding! Why did you call it moose? Is it made from moose? Are moose made from chocolate? They aren’t? But they’re brown, like chocolate! Why, Mommy? Why????? Sorry Mom. Anyway, Mom got pretty mad at my brother over that one because he had been filling my head with nonsense about mousse being made from moose, which of course is absurd but I was 5 years old. Give me a break! He was trying to put me off from it so I wouldn’t want any and so he could take my portion. Nice try, bro.
To me, chocolate mousse is like pudding’s ritzy, well-to-do cousin. Pudding says backyard barbecue and flip-flops while mousse dazzles like a fancy princess ball. But what’s awesome about mousse, particularly this one, is that it only looks fancy and high-maintenance. It’s actually one of the most simple yet impressive things you can make. Dinner alone with the husband? Need a special filling for your cake? This chocolate mousse has you covered.
