READY for an outpouring of compliments? You'll get lots when you serve these decadent desserts! "A friend shared the recipe with me after she prepared it for my birthday," Ann says. "She simply covered plastic glasses with melted confectionery coating, let it harden and then removed the plastic to create edible treats." A mouthwatering raspberry mousse completes the candy cups. If you like, add a berry and mint garnish on top.—Ann White, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
Simply elegant is a fitting description for this smooth treat from field editor Laruinda Johnston, Belchertown, Massachusetts. Whipped cream teams up with white chocolate to make her easy recipe extra-special.
Eye-appealing individual chocolate bowls are filled with smooth homemade mousse, then garnished with warm raspberry jam. The cups can be prepared early in the day and refrigerated until you're ready to fill them. They are great for entertaining.—Michele Field, Sykesville, Maryland
Layers of silky white chocolate mousse and sweet cherry sauce with a hint of orange alternate in this delectable dessert. I use a pastry bag to pipe the mousse into pretty dishes handed down from my husband's grandmother.
