chocolate raspberry mousse verrines

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) thawed frozen unsweetened raspberries
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 10 oz (300 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) unflavoured gelatin
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Milk
  • 1 cup (250 mL) 35 % cream
  • Coarsely crumbled chocolate wafers

Preparation

In a blender or food processor, purée raspberries, sugar and lemon juice, then pour mixture through a fine sieve into a liquid measuring cup; chill.

Using a medium bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave on medium power, stirring frequently.

In a small saucepan, stir gelatin into milk and let stand 1 minute. Heat milk to just below a simmer, whisk it into warm chocolate until thoroughly blended. Let cool to room temperature.

Whip cream to soft peaks; gradually fold in chocolate mixture. Pour mixture into a piping bag. In a 1 3/4 oz shot glass, fill 1/3rd with chocolate mousse and 1/3rd with raspberry purée. Top with another layer of chocolate mousse. Garnish with crumbled chocolate wafers. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

Tips

Instead of a piping bag, use a large re-sealable plastic bag and cut the bottom corner to create a tip.

Shot glass should be wide enough to insert a teaspoon.
