I’m curious how many of you celebrate Valentine’s Day? And what kind of plans you make for this special day….

It’s funny, when I was single, Valentine’s Day was either filled with chick flicks and tubs of ice cream….or a night out with friends.

Then I started dating my husband and we shared romantic dinners with expensive cuts of meat and bottles of wine! Of course sappy cards and gifts were involved too.

After marriage and a few kids…Valentine’s was more about cute stuffed animals, fighting with my kids to write their names on 26 Valentine’s cards, and then baking 100 cupcakes for four classroom parties!

Now that my kids are older and the classroom party days are over, Valentine’s Day is a quiet night at home, with comfort food. And chocolate.

Today’s recipe is on the menu at our house, it’s so rich and decadent, you’re going to want this too!

Chocolate Decadence with Raspberry Sauce

It starts with some easy ingredients you probably already have in your pantry!

While this is an easy to make dessert, you do need to plan ahead in order to freeze the chocolate mousse for at least 4 hours (or overnight)! The original recipe came from the Karo® website. I swapped out the frozen raspberries for fresh, added a drizzle of chocolate syrup, and whipped up a quick batch of homemade whipped cream.

Wowza. Sometimes I surprise myself with how much I love food! And chocolate. And in my book, raspberries go hand in hand with rich chocolate desserts like this one! Now tell me…what are your Valentine’s Day plans??

 

Yield: 12 servings

Chocolate Decadence with Raspberry Sauce

Prep Time 4 hours 30 minutes

Ingredients

For the Chocolate Mousse:

  • 1/2 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
  • 16 oz bittersweet chocolate (60% cacao)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cup heavy cream, divided
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

For the topping:

  • 12 oz fresh raspberries, divided
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x5x3-inch metal loaf pan with plastic wrap. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine corn syrup, chocolate and butter. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  3. Mix 1/2 cup of the cream with the egg yolks in a small bowl. Add to the melted chocolate mixture and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  4. Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, continue on by beating 1 1/2 cup heavy cream with powdered sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl on high speed. Beat until soft peaks form. Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture and stir just until combined. Pour into loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
  5. To prepare raspberry sauce, combine 6oz of the fresh raspberries with the corn syrup and vanilla extract in a small blender. Process quickly until combined (you still want some chunks of raspberry).
  6. For the whipped cream, beat heavy cream with powdered sugar until soft peaks form. Refrigerate or use immediately.
  7. To assemble, slice frozen chocolate mousse and arrange on plates. Dollop a large spoonful of whipped cream onto each slice. Drizzle with raspberry sauce, chocolate syrup and add the remaining fresh berries. ENJOY!

  1. Aimee, this is one of the prettiest desserts ever! All that chocolate just might satisfy my chocolate cravings for the day. haha Pinned! 🙂

  2. I remember when Valentine’s got me a nice, relaxed meal somewhere with cloth napkins. Kids have a way of stopping that one!
    But if you can make this dessert, it’s better than anything in a restaurant anyway! It looks so amazing, Aimee!

  3. Noah baby! Now that is a chocolate dessert 🙂 I am seriously drooling over that and the raspberry sauce. This year I have totally been all over chocolate and raspberry together! We have never been big on celebrating Valentine’s Day here. Sometimes a little chocolate or flowers, but usually just dinner and a movie at home.

  4. My husband’s birthday IS Valentine’s Day (poor guy, always has to get me something on his birthday 🙂 I think I NEED to make this for his birthday cake – yum!

  5. This looks delicious! My husband told me that he will suprise me with a very expensive champagne, so may be I will surprise him with a cake! 🙂 thanks for sharing <3

    1. You know, I’m not sure. I’m thinking it would be really soft in the fridge. Once you freeze it, you can slice it frozen then put it in the fridge before serving. I did let it thaw a little bit before eating it!

  6. This looks A-MAZ-ING!! We stay in (neither of us love crowds, and finding a babysitter is next to impossible) but I think it’s much better to stay in when you can make a dessert like this one!!

  7. The photo looks like a regular slice from a round dessert but the recipe says it is made in a loaf pan so why doesn’t the photo look like a slice from a loaf?

  8. Thanks for getting right back to me , I want to make it for a party… so would that be 6 slices cut in half for 12 servings or 5 slices for 10 or 4 slices for 8? Need to know how many loaves to make! Looks yummy!

    1. So I cut 6 thick slices then cut each of those in half…making 12 servings. It’s very rich and decadent, so it’s a great portion!
