Chocolate+Mousse

Chocolate Mousse

The best meal I ever had was Christmas dinner in 2020. Covid and online learning were stressing me out, but winter break was my time to de-stress. During the break, I helped my mom prepare a big meal for Christmas dinner. We cooked steak, bought crispy bread, and steamed vegetables. For dessert, we made these incredible chocolate mousses. We ate dessert on the couch of our living room while watching The Queen’s Gambit. That Christmas afternoon went smoothly and was one of the most relaxing nights that year. I will always associate this dessert with peace and tranquility in a time of chaos.
