- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Gently wash the raspberries and set aside a few for garnish.

- In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and half of the granulated sugar until the mixture is pale and slightly thickened.
- Gradually fold the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture, ensuring it’s well combined.
- In another bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the remaining sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
- Gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until no white streaks remain.
- In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold them into the chocolate mixture, maintaining the mousse’s airy texture.
- Take stemmed glasses and layer the mousse with fresh raspberries. Repeat the layers, ending with a few raspberries on top.
- Refrigerate the mousse for at least 2 hours to set.
