This is a light and fluffy mousse with a wonderful raspberry sauce. Great layered like a parfait then frozen. Additional Raspberry sauce can be spooned over cakes or served with mousse.

I made this for a dinner party the other night and placed it inside chocolate shell cups then I topped it with raspberries and blackberries. I also drizzled some of the raspberry sauce on the plate for decoration....my guests went nuts for it and have told everyone about it! Read More

This came together perfectly and made for a lovely presentation in parfait glasses. It just wasn't anything I'd make again. Can't quite put my finger on it but something was off maybe the combination of the three flavors or maybe Grand Marnier was not the best choice of liqueur. This was just okay and there are many better mousse raspberry and white chocolate recipes than this. None of my dinner guests were particularly impressed either but for those who are going to give this recipe a shot my suggestion would be to try Cassis or Chambord or leave the liqueur out altogether.

I used this recipe for a New Year's Eve dinner party because I had two pregnant guests and didn't want to serve raw eggs. It was very easy to make and had a nice light taste. It was a great finisher for a heavy dinner. I bought Keebler waffle cone cups and painted them with melted chocolate and then piped in the mousse. I drizzled extra raspberry sauce on top and then added fresh raspberries. I also drew designs in the plates with raspberry sauce and then put the cups on them. I used a squeeze ketchup bottle from the grocery store for the sauce. This made a great elegant dessert that actually wasn't all that hard to make. I will definitely make this again! It got raves from the guests. Read More

I have made this a few times and while the mousse is fantastic if you don't get fresh ripe raspberries the sauce is way too tart.:( Also make sure to fold the mousse together and not overmix it or it'll start to curdle! Read More

This was terrific! I made a few modifications though - not the biggest white chocolate fan so I made it with 3oz. of bittersweet chocolate and 3oz. of semi-sweet chocolate. I think having less sugar in the chocolate made the raspberry taste more pronounced. Also I didn't have orange liquor so I used chambord to make the raspberry sauce and it was delicious. Read More

Very good! I whipped up a bit more cream than called for so I could "sacrifice" some & stir a little bit into the white chocolate mixture before folding the rest in. This makes it easier to fold in & gets better distribution w/out fear of stirring the air out of the cream. I really liked Amber's presentation idea of serving it in fancied up waffle cones (thumbs up to Amber!) but was transporting these to my daughter's so I made chocolate cups for the grown-ups instead. Didn't want to overload the kids w/ sugar so I "parfaited" their's. I garnished w/ a couple of fresh raspberries rolled in sugar. Thansk Stacie! Read More

Excellent mousse! I made my raspberry sauce a little differently- I smashed frozen raspberries in a sauce pot and added enough water and sugar to make a sauce. Once the mixture melted down a bit I strained it and returned to to the pot. I added about 1T cornstarch in water and brought to a light boil. It was sweet and glossy! Layered with mouse and garnished with a raspberry and mint. So pretty!! Read More

I substituted dark chocolate for the white chocolate and strawberries for the raspberries. It was pretty good but I overwhipped the cream and chocolate mixture and it became a little grainy. Read More
