Ingredients

Chocolate Bowls

  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 10 x 10-inch sheet of aluminum foil
  • 4 decorator balloons, inflated to a 5-inch diameter

Chocolate Mousse

  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • ¾ cup confectioners sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • Mint leaves for garnish

Preparation

To Make Chocolate Bowls:

In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat until it reaches a smooth consistency. Remove chocolate from heat and let sit at room temperature for 5-7 minutes.

Lay aluminum foil on a cookie sheet. Dip the bottom half of each balloon into melted chocolate, then transfer to the foil. Rest balloons for 3-4 minutes, then repeat process.

Refrigerate balloons for 1 hour. Remove and gently pop one balloon at a time, carefully peeling it away from the inside of the chocolate bowl. Leave in a cool environment, loosely covered.

To Make Chocolate Mousse:

With a mixer, cream together cream cheese and butter on medium speed. Add confectioners sugar, cocoa, milk and vanilla extract. Continue to beat mixture until light and fluffy. Transfer to a separate container.

Whip heavy cream on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture with a rubber spatula. Spoon mixture into a decorating bag with a large rosette tip. Pipe this mixture into each chocolate bowl, leaving room for the berries. Return filled bowls to refrigerator and chill for about 2 hours.

Just before serving, add fresh raspberries to chocolate bowl and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
