Homemade Chocolate Eggs Filled with White Chocolate Mousse

Unleash your sweet tooth with this
sinfully rich white chocolate mousse served in a small homemade chocolate cup
Happy Spring everybody!
I'm super excited to share this recipe with you today, because I know it will have you itching to get into the kitchen and try it yourself as soon as you have the chance. 
These dark chocolate little cups are filled with dense and rich white chocolate mousse, and a fresh raspberry on top. Chocolate on chocolate with a splash of color for the perfect "wow" touch. 
They are sinfully sweet, eye-catching and simply great for Easter. But whether you are making them for the upcoming holiday, or for any other occasion any day of the year, these chocolate cups are a sure show-stopper.
Just look!

Berry and Cream over Meringue Cups

Bring a taste of summer to your table with these crispy meringue cups
filled with sweet berries and velvety rich whipped cream

If you ask me, this is what heaven must taste like. 
Just like a perfect mingle of sunshine sweet berries and silky whipped cream. Served up in a cloud-resembling dessert, perfectly crispy on the outside and dangerously soft on the inside. 

And if you ask my kids, they'd tell you this is the best dessert they've ever eaten. 
Their words, not mine 😊
Technically though, it's not the first time they've said that. But still, I'm pretty sure this dessert makes it to their top five. And for very good reasons!
This luscious piece of heaven (that's what it really should be called) has naturally sweet berries, rich and fluffy whipped cream, and a light and airy homemade meringue on the bottom which truly melts in your mouth when hitting your tastebuds.
