Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Tarts


My feelings for chocolate and raspberry together will never change.  They are the best!  Individual desserts are much more fun to eat.  I bought these cute little fluted pans from www.williamssonoma.com.         



1 package 9 oz. chocolate wafers
4 oz. butter, melted
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1-1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream
8 oz Bakers semi sweet chocolate squares, divided
3 egg yolks
1 small container raspberries

In food processor crush chocolate wafers.  Add to bowl.  Add melted butter and stir until mixed thoroughly. Press crumbs into bottom and sides of 6 individual tart pans with removable bottoms.  Chill until firm.  


In a 1 quart saucepan sprinkle gelatin over milk.  Let stand 5 minutes to soften gelatin.  Using a wire whisk, beat in egg yolks and sugar to blend well.  Cook over medium-low heat for 8-12 minutes, stirring constantly until mixture coats back of spoon.  Do not boil or mixture will curdle.


Melt chocolate in microwave on low heat.  Add 6 oz of the melted chocolate to egg/milk/sugar mixture. Chill mixture in an ice bath (bigger bowl filled with ice and water that pan will fit into) or refrigerator for a few minutes.    


In a medium size bowl beat cream with mixer until stiff peaks form.  Using a rubber spatula fold cream into chocolate mixture after it has cooled.  If you add it too early it will be a mess.  Spoon filling into prepared crusts.  Refrigerate until chocolate mixture is firm.  

Before serving top with raspberries and drizzle remaining melted chocolate on top.

Enjoy!   Susan
