Let's Whip It Up:

Prepare the Raspberry Layer:

  • In a saucepan, mix raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice.
  • Cook over medium heat until the berries soften and the sauce thickens a bit.
  • Let it cool, and strain it if you're not a fan of seeds.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q: Can I use frozen raspberries? A: Absolutely! Just make sure to thaw them first and maybe cook a little longer if they're watery.

    Q: What if I don’t have a microwave? A: No worries! You can melt the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water. Just keep stirring and keep an eye on it.

    Q: Can I make this ahead of time? A: For sure! These mousses can be made a day in advance. Just keep them in the fridge until you're ready to serve.

    Q: How can I make this healthier? A: Try swapping the sugar with a sweetener like stevia, and consider using a lighter cream or even a whipped coconut cream if you're up for a twist!
