This incredibly delicious White Chocolate Mousse is SO quick and easy to make! It’s smooth, light, creamy and ridiculously moreish. Throw in some raspberries & home made white chocolate curls? You are doing Valentines Day right this year my friend! Did I mention there’s only 2 ingredients too? I know right?! It’s the dessert that just keeps on giving.
Here is what you will need to serve 2.
For the White Chocolate Curls
For the White Chocolate Mousse
If you are going to make your own chocolate curls, place a baking tray into the fridge or freezer to chill until cold to the touch.
Break the 30g of white chocolate into a small bowl and melt in the microwave in 10 second intervals stirring well between each time with a spatula.
Then pour your melted chocolate onto the cold baking sheet and spread out evenly & thinly with a spatula.
Keep smoothing out until the chocolate starts to set. When it has set, take your dough scraper and carefully start to scrape/push the chocolate so it rolls up into curls & shards.
Store your curls in an airtight container in the fridge until needed.
To make the mousse, break the white chocolate into a large bowl and pour in 40ml of the double cream. Heat in the microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring well between each time, until it’s melted and smooth.
While the chocolate is cooling to room temperature, let’s whip up the cream.
Pour the remaining cream into either an electric stand mixer with the whisk attachment or, like me, into another large bowl using a regular hand whisk. I prefer to whip cream by hand as you can so easily over do it and split the cream.
So, whatever your chosen method, whip the cream until soft peaks form.
Next, take 2 tbsp of the whipped cream and fold it into the cooled chocolate mixture with a spatula until blended evenly.
Carefully fold through half the remaining whipped cream, being gentle enough to not knock out any air.
Finally fold through the last of the cream just until it’s evenly distributed and you can’t see anymore streaks.
Pour the mousse into your 2 glasses/serving pots & allow to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
The mousse can be stored in the fridge covered in cling film for up to 3 days.
When you are ready to serve, top with a few raspberries & a generous amount of your homemade white chocolate curls.
Tadah! Didn’t I say this was insanely easy to make? If you don’t like raspberries you could just as easily swap them out for strawberries and/or blueberries. In fact, you could even swap the white chocolate for milk or dark chocolate. It’s such a versatile dessert that can so easily be tailored to your taste buds. So what are you waiting for? Get it on your Valentines Day dinner shopping list!
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
