Delicious chocolate mousse

I like  chocolate very much,  and everything made with chocolate. I have made this mousse with many different types of chocolate, but  I think the best chocolate for this  mousse is dark chocolate. This is a perfect dessert because it looks pretty and  you can make it ahead of time.

I topped the mousse with chocolate shavings, but you can also use fresh raspberries if you like.
