Eggless Chocolate Mousse with Fresh Raspberries

This is my ideal dessert,Chocolate and Fresh Raspberries. Antioxidants and more Antioxidants!!!! I know it maybe idealist to think of it that way but it certainly helps . This fantastic recipe comes from the culinary guru,C.I.A.

serves 6

31/2 cups Heavy cream

1/4 cup dark rum (optional)

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

8 oz semi sweet,chocolate ,chopped

1 cup fresh raspberries

Chocolate curls for garnish

In a deep bowl,lightly whip 3 cups of cream and flavor it with rum. In another deep bowl ,whip the remaining cream with sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler over barely simmering water. Add 1 cup of the lightly whipped cream to the chocolate and whisk to combine the two. Stir the chocolate mixture gently until it becomes the same consistency as the remaining lightly whipped cream.

Fold the chocolate mixture into the remaining lightly whipped cream until they are a smooth,homogenous mixture (do not overmix).

Place a few berries at the bottom of each of six 6 oz wineglasses. Pipe or spoon the chocolate mousse into each glass to within  1 inch of the top. Divide the remaining raspberries evenly and place on top of the mousse in each glass.

Using a medium star tip ,pipe a rosette of the stiffly whipped cream on top of the berries. refridgerate the mousse for at least 3 hours. Garnish with chocolate curls just before serving.
