Preparation & Cooking
For the sugar syrup, in a small saucepan, combine ¾ cup of sugar and water. Bring to a simmer, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat.
Add the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Stir in the rum.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk egg whites until soft peaks form, using an electric mixer set on high speed. Gradually whisk in remaining sugar until stiff (but not dry) peaks form.
Whisk ¼ of beaten egg whites into chocolate mixture. Fold in remaining whites, then the ready whipped topping.
Pour mousse into dessert dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours to set. Decorate with additional ready-whipped topping, fresh raspberries, and walnuts.
