Melt the butter. Put the biscuits into a plastic bag and then use a rolling pin to crush to crumbs. Pour the crumbs into a bowl and then add the melted butter. Mix thoroughly to ensure all of the crumbs are coated in butter. Press the biscuit mixture into a cake tin or individual mousse rings. Press down firmly to create an even layer. Transfer to the fridge and chill for 1 hour.
Cut half of the raspberry's in half. Roughly chop the mint.
Place the chocolate pieces into a heatproof bowl. Put the cream into a saucepan and bring it to the boil. Pour it over the chocolate and stir with a spatula until the chocolate has melted and becomes smooth ganache.
Slice the vanilla pod in half lengthways, leaving the tip intact, so that the two halves are still joined. Holding onto the tip of the pod, scrape out the seeds using the back of a kitchen knife.
Place the soft cheese, icing sugar and vanilla seeds in a bowl and beat with an electric whisk until smooth. Add the cream and continue beating until the mixture is completely combined. Fold in the mint, whole raspberries, chocolate ganache and then spoon the mixture on top of the biscuit base. Use the back of a dessert spoon to smooth the surface and then arrange the half raspberries on top. Place in the fridge for at least a few hours, overnight is even better!
