1 c heavy cream

1 lb while milk ricotta cheese

8 oz mascarpone cheese

zest of 1 lemon

½ c sugar

2 lb strawberries, cleaned, hulled, cut into quarters

¼ c Drizzle Dark Chocolate Balsamic

2oz 72% Dark Chocolate Bar, room temperature, curled with vegetable peeler


Begin by preparing your mousse. Beat cream in a bowl until it reaches the soft peak stage... then stop! Set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the lemon zest and sugar to your ricotta and mascarpone. Whip with mixer until smooth. (Yum!)

Next, take the cream you've whipped and begin folding it into the cheese mixture. Take your time and go slowly. You want a smooth texture. When complete, cover and chill for an hour or two.

When you're getting near serving time, begin preparing your berries. Place them in a bowl and add the Dark Chocolate Balsamic. Dish berries into martini glass, top with chilled mousse, garnish with dark chocolate curls.
