Dark chocolate mousse

I like to look into the history of some of the foods I make and how they have evolved over time. Chocolate mousse originated in France, around the 17th century, when chocolate first became known. It has evolved into the chocolate mousse we know today.

Nowadays it is a very famous and tasty dessert.There are many variations of chocolate mousse, you can add liqueur or even change the type of chocolate you use!

In this case we are going to make it with dark chocolate, which gives it a special touch. Do you know what it would be delicious with? With flour pancakes or even crepes! When I make it at home it never lasts, as my family eats it all so quickly!
