This extremely light and fruity raspberry infused chocolate mousse is a real treat! They are super easy to whip up and with every bite, you get the wonderful dose of dark chocolate sweetened by the freshest of raspberries. They are wonderfully indulgent and surprisingly healthy!

The aim with most healthy versions of traditional recipes is to make them taste as good as the original while retaining the integrity o the dish – and boy does this one deliver. Instead of using copious amounts of sugar this recipe is mostly sweetened by the raspberries.

They are perfect for a dinner party dessert or for any romantic occasion. Top them off with more fresh fruit, greek yogurt, whipped cream or extra chocolate shavings.

For best results use between 70% – 80% dark chocolate!
