These are little cups of yummy goodness. You can use any kind of liqueur you would like, and even experiment with the different kinds of cocoa that are out there. Enjoy!

Update: Made this last night with Amaretto. OMG! It was so delicious! You got to try it!

How to Make Raspberry Liqueur Chocolate Mousse

Step-by-Step

  1. Place mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 15-20 minutes to chill.
  2. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; stir with a fork and let stand 1 minute to soften.
  3. Add boiling water; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  4. Sift cocoa through a fine mesh sieve to get the lumps out. In a large mixing bowl stir together sugar and cocoa; add heavy cream. Beat at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gradually pour in liqueur, vanilla, and gelatin mixture, beating at high speed until well-blended and soft peaks form. Let stand 5 minutes to thicken.
  6. Spoon into serving dishes, top with fresh raspberries (if you wish) and place in refrigerator to chill about an hour or so.
