Who knew there were so many things to do with chocolate mousse?

Chocolate mousse is a classic French dessert made from chocolate, eggs and cream. Lighter and fluffier than pudding, it’s often served chilled or frozen. But there’s more than one way to achieve the delicious signature texture: You can make a rich, silky mousse with some pantry staples you probably have at home.
