Add a touch of whimsy to your Valentine ’s Day with this lovely version of a classic pastry. Fluffy chocolate mousse and bright raspberries are sandwiched between flaky sheets of phyllo dough and then sprinkled with powdered sugar for an elegant finish.

What You Need:
(Makes: 8 servings)

4 ounces of bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
8 sheets of phyllo dough (14 x 9 inches)
6 tablespoons of butter, melted
3 tablespoons of sugar
2 cups of fresh raspberries
Confectioners' sugar

What to Do:
STEP 1)
Place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled.

STEP 2) Meanwhile, place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface (keep remaining dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out). Brush with butter; sprinkle with sugar. Repeat layers seven times. Cut into eight rectangles. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

STEP 3) In a small bowl, beat the chocolate mixture until soft peaks form, about 15 seconds. Gently split each pastry in half horizontally. Spread 3 tablespoons chocolate mixture over the bottom halves; layer with raspberries and remaining chocolate mixture. Replace tops. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately.

STEP 4) Happy Valentine’s Day & Enjoy!
