Cooking dessert "Watermelon slices":

Step 1: Make Fruit Mousse

Rinse raspberries and strawberries thoroughly in water. If necessary, then we separate the strawberries from the leaves, which can be located at the base. Next, make mashed potatoes from berries. You can use a blender for this, if you have one. Or make a berry puree with the usual pusher. The only important condition: mashed potatoes should be uniform consistency. Next, mix it with yogurt. Add the icing sugar (if desired, it can be added more than indicated in the recipe) and mix the berry-yogurt mousse thoroughly. Soak gelatin plates in 2.5 tablespoons of water and leave for 5-10 minutes swell up. After which we put it on fire until completely dissolved, but do not boil! Add the finished gelatin to our filling and mix all the ingredients thoroughly.

Step 2: Prepare apples for dessert.

Rinse the apples thoroughly in water, after which we remove the stalk and cut each fruit in half. With a spoon, carefully select the core of the apples so that only the walls with a small amount of pulp remain. Of half a lemon squeeze juice and water them boats formed from apples.

Step 3: Form the watermelon slices.

For a more realistic perception of the dessert, we need to make improvised bones of watermelon. We will have chocolate. In order to save time and energy, you can take a small amount of finished chocolate chips. If you are not looking for easy ways, then we will cook it ourselves at home. For this drown chocolate in a water bath. Break the tile into slices and place them in a bowl. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the water to a boil, after which we put a bowl of chocolate in the saucepan. Thus, the chocolate will melt from the outgoing vapors. When it is completely melted, use a small spoon on the foil to make small drops and let them freeze. This will take only a few minutes. Next, put the berry mousse in halves of apples and periodically in a chaotic order place frozen chocolate drops in the filler. Ready halves put in the refrigerator for 1.5-2 hoursuntil the filler solidifies completely.

Step 4: Serve the Watermelon Slices Dessert.

At the end of the set time, we extract the halves of apples from the refrigerator, cut them into slices, like a watermelon and serve to the table.
