Strawberry and raspberry mousse in Chocolate glasses

Since Valentine's day comes only once a year I think it's best if it lasts longer than a day only. So here is another sweet sweet to celebrate the week of love.

Ingredients for the chocolate glasses: 150gr fondant chocolate
Ingredients for the mousse: 300gr mixed strawberry and raspberry, 120gr sugar, 2 Tbsp orange liqueur, 250ml whipping cream, 2 egg whites

To make the chocolate glasses wrap some kitchen foil around a glass. Deep the glass with the kithen foil in melted fondant chocolate. Make the excess of chocolate leak from the glass then put the glass on a serving plate. Remove the glass carefully and leave the foil to stand on the plate with the chocolate. Put it in the fridge for 1 hour and let it solidify. Remove then the kitchen foil carefully and you will get the chocolate glass. Its best to give it a few try perhaps with different glasses sizes as well. Also remember that once the chocolate is set, it will be impossibile to remove it from the plate. If you want to use another plate for serving the chococlate glass, put a layer of kitchen foil between the plate and the chocolate glass.
To make the mousse beat the egg whites with an electric mixer. Sprinkle in the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time while continuing to whip to stiff peaks. Wash the fruit, blend them with the orange liqueur or other liqueur at your choice. Whip the double cream until soft and add the fruit to the cream. Then add this to the white eggs and incorporate it slowly. When the chocolate glasse are ready, fill them with the mousse and decorate with strawberry or raspberry.
