Perfect Dessert for Valentine's - White Chocolate Mousse


Enjoy this elegant dessert by the spoonful!  You'll love the creamy, whipped texture and white chocolate flavor of this mousse.


I really wanted to make white chocolate mousse for a special dessert for Valentine's this year. After trying several different recipes, I found the perfect combination for a smooth, creamy mousse that's not too stiff! The texture is just right, and it's not complicated to make - the best kind!   


Ingredients:

MAKES ABOUT 4 CUPS

8 ounces good-quality white chocolate, chopped finely
1-2/3 cups heavy whipping cream


Instructions:

Add white chocolate and 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream in a heavy medium saucepan; stir over low heat just until chocolate is melted.

Immediately transfer chocolate mixture to a large bowl.  Let stand until mixture is cool and begins to thicken, stirring occasionally (cool about 30 minutes).

Add remaining 1 cup heavy whipping cream in a separate mixing bowl; beat until stiff peaks form.

Fold into cooled chocolate mixture in 2 additions.


Spoon into dessert dishes; chill at least 2 hours.

This can be made one day ahead.  Keep refrigerated.


I filled 9 of my small fine crystal cocktail glasses, which is a perfect portion for a rich dessert after a meal. They look very elegant garnished with a chocolate heart. I'll be sharing how to make these easy-to-make chocolate hearts tomorrow on my blog.






Two delicious variations:

Spoon chocolate mixture over sliced fruit. It's very delicious with strawberries. It's also delicious over crumbled Oreo Cookies. 



 Garnish with a sliced strawberry, fanned.



Served either way, it's a delicious, creamy dessert that is sure to please!


Come back tomorrow for instructions to make these cute, delicious chocolate heart accents. They're so fun!






Warmest regards,
