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.
