Using a premade chocolate cup is a super-easy way to make an impressive dessert. I filled these dark chocolate mousse cups with a rich chocolate mousse for a fabulous two-bite chocolate dessert. 

Topping with a fresh raspberry before serving makes these mousse cups look like they came from a fine chocolate shop. If you happen to own a few piping tips and bags, a star tip will make a professionally styled chocolate mousse.
