Trivia:

National chocolate mousse day is celebrated on the 3rd of April.

Mousse was originally served as a savory dish until early 19th century. In 1894, a French Artist, Toulouse Lautrec, came up with the idea of mixing chocolate with mousse, and thus chocolate mousse was born.

Chocolate mousse was originally termed mayonnaise de chocolat (chocolate mayonnaise) by its creator.
