Dark Chocolate Mousse Cups

One of the desserts I made for the baby shower was dark chocolate mousse cups. I don’t know why, but I felt like we needed something chocolate on the menu.

I’d never made chocolate mousse before, but the recipe did not look too difficult.

I used a cake decorator tool (link below) to pipe the mousse into these serving cups

I also made some fresh whipped cream to serve on top along with a fresh raspberry.
