Updated November 1, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons shortening
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Fresh raspberries, if desired
  • Fresh mint leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In small saucepan, combine chocolate chips and shortening; cook over low heat until melted, stirring frequently.
  • 2
    Line 8 muffin cups with paper baking cups. With pastry brush, coat sides and bottom of each cup thickly and evenly with chocolate. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until set.
  • 3
    Brush any thin spots with additional chocolate. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.
  • 4
    Place water in small microwave-safe bowl; sprinkle gelatin over water. Let stand 5 minutes to soften.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, place 1 1/2 cups raspberries in blender container or food processor bowl with metal blade. Cover; blend until pureed.
  • 6
    Microwave gelatin on HIGH for 30 to 40 seconds or until gelatin is dissolved. Add to raspberry mixture; mix well.
  • 7
    In small bowl, beat whipping cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. DO NOT OVERBEAT. Gently fold in raspberry mixture. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
  • 8
    Fifteen minutes before serving, carefully peel paper from chocolate cups. Spoon raspberry mixture into cups. Garnish with raspberries. Store in refrigerator.

  • Some supermarkets and gourmet shops sell chocolate dessert cups. They can be substituted for the homemade ones.
  • If you don’t have a pastry brush, use the tip and the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate on the bottom and up the sides of the cups.
  • Instead of preparing chocolate cups, purchase ready-made cups to hold the raspberry mousse. Try individual shortcakes sponge cake cups or tartlet shells.
  • Fresh Raspberry Mousse with Whipped Cream is another simple variation of this recipe. Arrange fresh raspberries in small dessert dishes; spoon the mousse over the fruit. Garnish each serving with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
