Chocolate And Raspberry Pots (+recipe) by claremanson Chocolate And Raspberry Pots (+recipe) by claremanson
A smooth and creamy white chocolate mousse with sharp crushed raspberry base topped off with more raspberries.

RECIPE
You will notice there is no egg whites in this recipe, unusual for a mousse but I do not like to eat or serve raw eggs to my children. There is a recipe linked in the photo below for my dark chocolate mousse if you are a purist and want mousse the proper way with raw eggs to make it a lot lighter and fluffier but for those who are not a fan this is a nice alternative.

Ingredients
White Chocolate (1/3 per serving glass)
Double/heavy cream (1/3 per serving glass)
Raspberries (1/3 per serving glass)

Method.
1. With an electric mixer whip up some cream into soft/medium peaks. Set aside.
2. Over a pan of hot water place a heat proof bowl and gently melt your chocolate, making sure the water does not touch your bowl, burning the chocolate. If however your chocolate does start to get a little grainy which is easily done with white chocolate add a couple drops of vegetable oil and mix, mix, mix, this will bring the chocolate back to a usable consistency. Leave to cool a little but not harden.
3. While waiting for your chocolate to cool wash and crush some raspberries and place them in the bottom of each glass. Clean off any mess up the inside of your serving glasses with some kitchen roll.
4. Now your chocolate has cooled, fold into the cream and layer on top your crushed raspberries.
5. Chill for 30 minutes or so, add some fresh raspberries on top and serve.

Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to three days.
OPTIONAL
If you have more than ten minutes you can strain your raspberries to remove all the seeds and add some gelatin to it to create a nice clean line when adding the mousse on top.
You can add some vanilla pod to the mousse
If unlike me don't mind using raw egg add some whipped, stiff egg whites for a light and fluffy finish to the mousse.
If you don't like white chocolate, use milk or dark. Same goes for the raspberries you can use strawberries, nutella etc

I just made this :) The chocolate was smooth when I added it to the whipping cream, but it got grainy when it cooled XD Delicious though! Thanks much!

Oh no, was the chocolate to hot when you added it? Or did you over whip the dream? That's the only two things I can think of it maybe, glad you enjoyed it though :)

I so wish I'd read these comments before I tried mine (alien-exile.deviantart.com/art…. But as you say good reasons to make it again.

I think the chocolate may have been a bit too warm : ) Next time I make it I'll be sure to let it cool more! It was really yummy! Thanks!

This looks amazing.
Um... sorry if this is a silly question, but I don't understand your measurements. Do you mean a third of a cup of each ingredient for each serving?

A third of each serving glass  you will be serving your dessert in.

Nope, I like to make it to taste anyway so am always adjusting quantities so don' bother with specifics anymore.

The recipe sounds yummy and the photo looks very professional, except for the plastic cups.  It seems you posted this more for the recipe than the photo, but from a photo point of view, using real glasses would have made a huge difference.
