Raspberry Chocolate Mousse

This raspberry chocolate mousse is the perfect dessert for special occasions. The fluffy chocolate mousse is smooth and light in texture.

Combine the raspberries, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Once simmering, cook the raspberries for around 5 minutes, stirring regularly with a wooden spoon until the sauce has slightly thickened.

Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each increment.

Add the egg yolks to the chocolate mixture, one at a time.

Whip egg whites and sugar until thick and foamy.

Fold the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture and use a rubber spatula to fold it all together gently.

Whip heavy cream, and fold it into the chocolate mixture.

Spoon the mixture into serving glasses in layers, alternating each mousse layer with dollops of raspberry compote.

Place the mousse in the fridge for 5 hours or, for best results, leave it overnight.
