Chocolate and redcurrant sweet treats

Dibujo As I comment before, I made a birthday lunch for my husband. On Saturday, it was cloudy first thing in the morning; I was afraid that could be raining on Sunday – But I am a lucky person and Sunday was beautiful, blue sky, warm and shinny .So, my guest will be out, enjoying the latest sunny and warm days before autumn really start. mosaic I woke up early to finalize some last minute details. Arrange flowers, chill the wine, make some drinks and canapés and set the tables. I was cooking all week long and frozen the most of food and appetizer, (for main curse I made green spinach crepes , filled with mascarpone chicken and mushrooms, on cream argula sauce) but this sweet treat I made on Saturday in the meantime I made some raspberries macaroons. It became a hit among my guest, Here the recipe. You can fill with anything that you like. Maybe you can use for Easter, is not a bad idea, isn’t it? chocolate & redcurrant mousse
