When I saw this recipe and the picture, I immediately chose it for our Valentines Day dessert. It is a very tedious process but I thought it was a lot of fun to make. Although mine didn't look as nice and pretty as the picture it was still delicious.
Like the other reviews, the mousse did not set in the 2-4 hr window as stated in the recipe. Next time I make this, I plan to use an unflavored gelatin to give it a bit more stability. Or make it the night before to give it a full day to set up. It seemed the chocolate layer was more firm so as you'd cut the cake it'd smash out the raspberry mousse layer.
My whole family loved the flavor, no matter what it looked like on the plate. One friend said it was a bit too rich. Small slices do go a long way.

I loved this and so did everyone that tried it. I used strawberries instead raspberries and it was delicious. Don't try this if you don't have a lot of time but it is worth the effort.

I have made this several times and love it! My only suggestion is to make the top chocolate layer as thin as possible without having the mousse show through. If this layer is too thick the dessert is hard to cut without squishing the piece.

This was fabulous. I'm usually not able to get a product to appear even close to how it does in the photo, but I did it this time! It was a trial run for a family event on Valentine's Day so I'll make it again soon.
It's the Best!

During the holidays, and any other occassion that gives you an excuse to bake, it can be difficult to find something different from what somebody else may make, that pleases even the harshist of critical palates, and is also readily eaten by the eye, be sure to make more than one of this one (as my out of town friend, who gave the recipe to me, had warned of its effect on those who ate it.) It was easily the biggest hit of my dessert table of offerings brought for the annual family "Christmas bake-off". Make sure not to lose the recipe as it will be asked for on the next gathering.

This one really rocks!!! Had to use Nestle Premium White morsels, but it worked like a charm. Fresh rasberries also worked, couldn't have turned out better; my friends did not believe it wasn't from the store.
Chocolate cake mix, evaporated milk and caramels make these the most moist and tender brownies this side of paradise. Add chocolate chips and chopped nuts and you'll think you've already arrived!
Offer these sophisticated Chocolate Strawberry Streusel Bars to your friends or family with vanilla ice cream. They’ll look great on a dessert tray too! This was a recipe sent to us by Rosemarie Thompson of Rockford, IL.
These cupcakes with "cobwebs" on the top make a perfect spooky treat for your favorite ghouls.
