While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Whip it good – April 3 is National Chocolate Mousse Day!
Forget the spoon and just stick your face into a mess of mousse today. While you won't want to comb this kind through your hair, it sure tastes like a chocoholic's dream.
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 cloudlike texture is beaten egg whites or whipped cream.
And as cookbook author David Lebovitz says, since he isn't one to argue with Julia, these individual mousses don't need any adornment once you're ready to serve. A spoon should suffice!
