These beautiful chocolate mousse domes encase a punchy chocolate mousse with a liquid raspberry coulis centre. If you want to use Willie’s Cacao 100% cacao cylinders instead of the dark chocolate, use 180g of 100% cacao and a total of 180g sugar to make the mousse so that the balance of sweetness and bitterness is kept in check.

  • Raspberry coulis

  • 250g of raspberries, lightly blitzed and passed through a sieve
  • icing sugar, to taste
  • Chocolate cases

  • 40g of dark chocolate
  • Chocolate mousse

  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 300g of 70% dark chocolate, Willie suggests Peruvian Chulucanas chocolate as it has the perfect fruitiness to go with the raspberries

1
For the coulis, crush or lightly blend the raspberries then pass through a sieve to remove the seeds. Sweeten the coulis to taste with a little icing sugar

2
Transfer the coulis to 3cm silicone dome moulds and place in the freezer to freeze solid
3
Now prepare the chocolate cases. Break or chop the chocolate into pieces and melt in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water (do not allow the bottom of the bowl to touch the surface of the water), stirring occasionally until smooth
4
Brush the silicone moulds with the melted chocolate evenly and place in the fridge until set and hard
5
To make the mousse, beat the egg yolks with half the sugar in a mixing bowl
6
Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl. Once they start to foam, add the remaining sugar to the bowl and continue whisking until the eggs have formed soft peaks
7
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate, using the same method as for the chocolate cases
8
Transfer the melted chocolate to the bowl with the egg yolk and sugar mixture and beat until smooth and combined. Fold in the lightly-whipped cream. Finally, fold in the egg whites
9
Spoon the mousse into the prepared moulds, filling halfway up. Remove the frozen coulis from the moulds and press into each mousse. Cap off with a little extra mousse to seal the coulis inside. Return to the freezer to set
10
To serve, carefully remove the mousses from the moulds and turn out onto serving plates. Allow to defrost fully at room temperature before serving – the coulis will have melted and you will have a nice liquid coulis core
