Here is the little conversation to make things easier to understand:
Daddy: Little ‘A’ your day care would be starting from Monday. Would you like to have a party?

Little ‘A’: “Juice, chips, popcorn and chocolate cake.”
Daddy: “Little ‘A’, do you also want to eat some chocolate mousse?”
Little ‘A’: “Yes, mousse, mousse. I LIKE IT!”
Daddy: “Okay! Ask Mamma to make some chocolate mousse for us”.
Little ‘A’: “Mamma, make some chocolate mousse for us”!
Me: “What? You want mousse?”
Daddy: “Yes! It would be so nice if you can make some mousse forLittle ‘A’. She wants to have a little party before her daycare starts. She would be really happy if you make it”
Me: “Okay! I will make it tomorrow”.
Daddy: “But she wants to have it today. Can’t you make it today?”
Me: “Mmmmm, yes I can! But who wants to have mousse really? YOU or Little ‘A’. ;-)”
Abhishek looked at me mischievously and said, “Come on, we both want mousse. And anyways we all love chocolate, so we will enjoy together. What do you think? I think you should really make it. A mousse to make us all HAPPY”.

Also its recipe doesn’t have so many steps. So it’s not complicated at all. It will take you about 10-12 minutes to make it.
I personally find using a microwave is very fast for melting chocolates. Thus, I always melt my chocolates in microwave, but it you are not comfortable with this microwave method, you can also use a double boiler to melt your chocolate.
In short it is so amazing. Just top it all off with some fresh whipped cream and lots
chocolate shavings! And you are good to go.
So all I want to say — it is Friday! And this mousse is indeed amazingly simple and easy. So go for it and make this mousse.
And if you wish, you can give a me an HIGH-5 for this! A virtual one will work here just fine. 😉 So cheers to this mousse.
