Raspberry Chocolate Mousse 

Desserts are irresistible in their own way. They are generally relished after the main course but while we do that, we tend to forget that desserts are what comprise life. Desserts should be enjoyed whenever the need calls upon, without any guilt. Stealing desserts from the fridge is not a misdemeanor. Anyway, let us not get too much carried away.

There is no better dessert than the one that has chocolate as an ingredient. You cannot deny the refreshing taste of raspberries. If we combine both of these, the result is going to blow away minds. Here, we tend to do just that by bringing the fusion to your platter. So, without much further discussion, let us now fall back on the recipe. Here we go.

However, this mousse is not just easy to make, but also consumes a very small amount of time from your schedule. The Raspberry Chocolate Mousse would be ready in a total time of an hour and 30 minutes. Out of this, 30 minutes are to be dedicated to preparation. The final yield would satisfy 4 people. It must also be mentioned that this recipe takes in just 4 ingredients. 

The things that would be required 

Every recipe comes with its own list of ingredients, so does this mousse. We have listed down the total of 4 ingredients that would be needed as under: 

  • A cup filled with whipping cream 
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar 
  • A ¾ cup filled with chocolate chips, preferably semisweet 
  • One and a half cup of red raspberries that have been thawed, unsweetened and frozen 

When this small list is covered, you proceed to the process of cooking. 

The process for cooking 

This recipe, however easy to be pulled off, requires some precision to be carved out near perfection. Follow the steps listed below: 

  • Grab a medium sized bowl and place a strainer over it. Toss raspberries into the strainer as you press them using back of a spoon to discard seeds. Keep about 2 tablespoons of this puree aside for topping. 
  • Get a small saucepan and bring together in it 2 tablespoons cream, a tablespoon sugar, and chocolate chips. Place over a low flame for about 3-4 minutes while constantly stirring. Add the raspberry puree to this and allow cool for about 10 minutes. 
  • As the cooling takes place, grab a little bowl and beat the rest of the cream in it. Carry on until soft peaks appear. Add the leftover sugar to this and continue to beat until peaks are stiff. Keep aside half a cup of this cream, to be used as a topping. 
  • Now add the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture gently.  
  • Divide into parfait glasses and place them in the fridge for about an hour. 
  • Fold the puree kept aside until the cream kept aside. Place in the fridge for some time. Pipe this onto the mousse when serving. 

Therefore, you have your mousse ready. That was easy, wasn’t it? Try today. Happy eating!
