- For the white chocolate mousse:
- 1 tbsp powdered gelatin
- 2 tbsp water
- 200 g Lindt EXCELLENCE White Chocolate with a Touch of Vanilla, finely chopped
- 500 ml double cream
- 4 egg yolks
- 120 g caster sugar
- To decorate:
- 6 squares of Lindt EXCELLENCE White Chocolate with a Touch of Vanilla

For the raspberry puree: Mix together the raspberries, sugar, raspberry jam and lemon juice in a bowl. Leave to stand for 30 minutes or until the sugar starts to draw out the raspberry juices and has dissolved. Spoon into a blender and blitz until you have a smooth puree. Strain through a fine meshed strainer.
For the mousse: put the chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl; set aside. Put the water in a ramekin and sprinkle the gelatin over the top. Leave for 5 minutes.
Pour 250 ml cream into small saucepan over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until steaming. Pour the cream mixture over chocolate and leave to stand for 1 minute. Whisk until smooth and melted; set aside.
Meanwhile, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl set over saucepan of simmering water for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture is thick. To test: let the mixture fall back into the bowl from the whisk, it’s thick enough when a ribbon forms on the surface and slowly disappears back into mixture.
Fold the egg yolk mixture into the white chocolate mixture. Spoon into a large bowl. Stir in the raspberry puree. Place over an ice bath, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes or until the mixture starts to thicken and has cooled to room temperature.
Beat the remaining cream until stiff peaks start to form. Fold one third into the white chocolate-raspberry mixture. Then gently fold in the remaining whipped cream.
Divide between 6 serving glasses. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 to 4 hours - or until set.
Decorate with chocolate diamonds and fresh raspberries. Serve straight away.
