Ingredients

Dark Chocolate Mousse

  • 1 (4 oz) dark chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks

Red Wine Raspberries

  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh (or frozen) raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Powdered sugar and shaved chocolate for serving

Instructions

  • In a double-boiler over medium-high heat, melt chocolate, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in agave and vanilla. Allow to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • Very gently fold whipped egg whites and whipped cream into melted chocolate mixture until just combined. Press plastic wrap directly to surface and chill mousse two hours or until set.

Red Wine Raspberries

  • Combine red wine, raspberries, agave, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes until raspberries are broken down into a thick sauce. Remove from heat and cool.
  • Serve chocolate mousse in individual serving bowls with raspberry sauce on top and powdered sugar and chocolate shavings. Enjoy!
