Method

Separate the eggs into two cups – yolks in one, whites in the other.

Melt the chocolate, stirring regularly.

Once melted and smooth, allow to cool slightly before adding the egg yolks and stirring thoroughly.

Whip the cream until thickened and then fold in the chocolate mixture.

Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until the mixture becomes frothy.

Fold the egg whites into the chocolate and cream mixture.

Line the desert dishes/ glasses with a layer of raspberries on the bottom.

Distribute the mousse mixture evenly into the dishes and place in the fridge for 4 hours.

Serve with a topping of crushed pistachios.
