“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” – Charles M. Schulz
History of National Chocolate Mousse Day
The origin of this day is not known so far. Mousse is believed to be originated in France, because of its name. Chocolate mousse came into the United States in 1892 when the Boston Daily Globe published one of the first recipes for the mousse. In 1930, after the invention of the electric mixers, the egg was made more comfortable to whip resulting in the modern mousse. But the recipe attained its popularity after world war II, along with the growth of French cuisine in the country.
