Raspberry Chocolate Mousse Cups
These are simple to make and a great dessert to make ahead for a dinner party or special occasion. Don’t be put off by the avocado — while it contributes great nutritional value and a creamy texture, you can’t taste it at all. The flavour combination of chocolate and raspberry packs a punch and is a match made in heaven.

Tip: This mousse also makes a fabulous chocolate ganache for icing cakes, using either the mousse alone or also drizzled with the raspberry sauce. It’s like two recipes in one!
