#Raspberry & Chocolate Mousse

 

This dessert we had on New Year’s Eve with a combined mousse on chocolate and raspberry was was both quick, easy and so tasty!:

Chocolate Mousse

100 g dark chocolate

2½ cups whipping cream

2 egg yolks

½ cup granulated sugar

Melt chocolate in the microwave or over a water bath. Whip the cream lightly. Whip egg yolks and sugar until white and fluffy. Add the eggs and sugar under vigorous stirring in the hot melted chocolate. Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, stirring constantly. Divide the mousse in glasses. Let the mousse solidify in the refrigerator, preferably in the serving glasses.

Raspberry Mousse

5 cups raspberries

1 cup sugar jelly

1/2 tbsp vanilla sugar

3 cups whipping cream

Boil the raspberries to puree. Add the jelly sugar and let boil for a few seconds. Add the vanilla sugar. Whip the cream. Be sure to whisk it easy. When the raspberry gelatin mixture begins to solidify, turn in the whipped cream. Divide the mousse in the glasses on top of the chocolate mousse. 

Garnish with fresh raspberries, grated chocolate and lemon balm. Let it solidify in the refrigerator for a while before serving.
