  2. 2
    RASPBERRY INSERT: In a saucepan add the coconut milk and tapioca starch and bring it to a boil. Pour over chocolate and emulsify. Cool it then add the raspberries and xanthan gum. Blend one more time. Pour the emulsion in a 6-inch mound. Thickness should be around 1 cm. Freeze.
  3. 3
    MOUSSE: Melt chocolate. Using a high-speed blender combine all ingredients together (including chocolate) and blend until very smooth. Using an 8-inch mold, pour half of the mousse. Take the insert out of the freezer and place it in the mold. Pour the rest of the mousse over it, making sure the insert is fully covered. Place the frozen biscuit on the top. Freeze overnight.
