Best Raspberry Chocolate Mousse

The secret to this ultra-creamy healthy chocolate mousse recipe: whipping and folding lightly sweetened egg whites into raspberry-spiked chocolate.




2 cups water
4 large eggs, separated
3 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 tablespoon Chambord
1 tablespoon low-fat milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped and melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chocolate shavings for garnish


Heat water in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until barely simmering.
Combine 2 egg yolks, 2 tablespoons sugar, Chambord, milk and salt in a heatproof bowl large enough to fit over the saucepan. (Save remaining yolks for another use.) Set the bowl over the barely simmering water and whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in chocolate.
Beat 4 egg whites in a separate large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form (see Tips). Add the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and vanilla and continue beating until the mixture holds stiff, shiny peaks.
Whisk one-fourth of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until smooth. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the remaining egg whites just until incorporated. Spoon the mousse into 6 dessert dishes. Refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours. Garnish with chocolate shavings, if desired.
