Trader Joe's Lemon curd in a jar

I bought it over the weekend and wondering what to make with it,
The easiest dessert humanly possible: Lemon curd mousse in chocolate shells.
Buy chocolate dessert shells. (These are not cake shells like shortcake shells, but actual chocolate shells. I always buy dark chocolate but milk and white are available, too.) These can be made by painting the inside of a cupcake paper with layers of chocolate, but that puts this dessert out of the easiest category.
Whip some heavy cream flavored with sugar and vanilla.
Put lemon curd into a bowl. Put whipped cream on top of lemon curd and gently fold the cream into the curd. If you do not know how to fold, watch a video before trying this. Technique is everything in folding if you don't want to deflate the whipped cream.
Put curd-cream mixture into the chocolate shells. Garnish with strawberries or raspberries.
