WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my apartment! Katie and I put up our Christmas tree last week and could not love it more. My Dad and Patti let us use their tree and all of their ornaments. It's just so pretty.



And what better to go with a Christmas tree then some delicious white chocolate mousse for dessert?!

This week I'll be sharing some delicious recipes that would be perfect for any holiday party. This white chocolate mousse is one of my favorite things to make. 

Josh and I had dinner and game night with our friends Maggie and Elijah on Friday and this dessert was requested. :)

It's super easy and tastes great!


White Chocolate Mousse
(adapted from this recipe)

Ingredients:
  • 7oz white chocolate chips
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsps sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Blackberries and Raspberries to serve on top
Instructions:
  • Put the chocolate chips in a large glass bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whip 1 cup of the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks and set aside.
  • Mix the egg yolks and sugar in a small bowl
  • In a pot, heat 1/4 cup of the cream until it simmers. 
  • Pour the hot cream into the yolk/sugar mixture, mix, and then pour everything back into the pot. 
  • Stirring continuously, heat the mixture until it becomes thick enough to stick to your spoon.
  • Pour the hot mixture directly onto the white chocolate chips and stir stir stir. (This should be a melty, goopy mixture when it's ready.)
  • Fold the whipped cream into the white chocolate mixture with a large wooden spoon. 
  • Top with berries and put into the fridge to set for an hour. 
  • You can also always add the berries later after the mousse has set.
  • Enjoy!
