  • Ingredient Substitution Some supermarkets and gourmet shops sell chocolate dessert cups. They can be substituted for the homemade ones.
  • Kitchen Tip If you don’t have a pastry brush, use the tip and the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate on the bottom and up the sides of the cups.
  • Recipe Variations Instead of preparing chocolate cups, purchase ready-made cups to hold the raspberry mousse. Try individual shortcakes sponge cake cups or tartlet shells.
  • Fresh Raspberry Mousse with Whipped Cream is another simple variation of this recipe. Arrange fresh raspberries in small dessert dishes; spoon the mousse over the fruit. Garnish each serving with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
