Raspberries and chocolate - a combination that must have been made in heaven. Especially in this luscious mousse! Easy for both casual and formal entertaining. This mousse is totally unique and amazing as the "custard" for a fresh berry tart. Raspberry Chocolate Mixed Berry Tart is pictured for a girl’s night dessert. TIP: Make it even quicker and easier by using a purchased graham cracker or chocolate pie crust. This is the perfect summer dessert since fresh fruit is plentiful and at its most affordable.
MORE ON HOW TO SERVE THIS MOUSSE:
Cream Puff or Cannoli Filling: This mousse is completely decadent as a filling for Raspberry Chocolate Cream Puffs or Raspberry Chocolate Cannoli (pictured). The cannoli are a great summer dessert; they’re light and, since they’re the original “finger food,” they can be served just with napkins. TIP: Prepared regular or mini size cannoli shells can be purchased online, at specialty food stores and at some grocery stores, including Wegmans. They're delicious, and make this dessert quite easy. See the READY MADE page for where to purchase ready-to-use cream puff or cannoli shells and crepés.
Trifle: Layer mousse with brownie bites and fresh raspberries in an individual Raspberry Chocolate Trifle (pictured). Make this an elegant dessert by serving with champagne.
Drinking Chocolate: This makes a dreamy “drinking chocolate” (pictured). Sometimes called “sipping chocolate,” or European hot chocolate,” it differs from the hot coco we grew up with by being richer and thicker. Purists insist it isn’t drinking chocolate unless it is made with chopped, melted chocolate; but ours is as rich and almost as thick when made with half and half, even the non-fat variety. And it’s much easier and quicker our way too. It’s perfect to sip when watching a movie, reading a book or any time you absolutely must have rich, luxurious chocolate. See RECIPES for directions.
Small Plate/Topping: Great as a small plate dessert topping Fresh Raspberries with Raspberry Chocolate Mousse Topping (pictured). This is a summer dessert that you can feel good about. It's so delicious no one will even notice that it's healthy too.
Double Chocolate Bites: Double the chocolate fix by piling mousse into chocolate shells for Raspberry Chocolate Shells (pictured); they make a lovely buffet or party small plate dessert offering. They’re really quick and easy too. TIP: Look for these and other chocolate shells at specialty food stores around fall and winter holidays, or on line any time. They keep very well as long as they aren't exposed to extreme heat or cold.
Easiest Presentations: Serve Raspberry Chocolate Mousse in a martini glass with a dollop of whipped cream (pictured). Make this even more elegant; serve with champagne. For brunch or casual parties, use it to top waffle bites (pictured).
Note: Make with reduced fat cream cheese and Lite Cool Whip® for light and fluffy mousse texture
