Like your chocolate mousse quick and easy?
Well, in this recipe I’ve used only 3 core ingredients and put together this delicious dessert.
Since it is an eggless recipe, the mousse is really light and not as dense which is great.
Making a white chocolate mousse is actually really easy if you have got your whipping time right.
- White chocolate- 2 slabs ( 250gms)
- 1 and a 1/2 cup Whipped cream
- 1 cup Heavy cream ( chilled)
- 1 tbs vanilla essence
- 2 tbs castor sugar ( optional depending on the brand of white chocolate you use. White chocolate is sweeter than regular milk chocolate)
- 1 tbs butter ( unsalted)
- 2 tbs gelatin ( optional)
- Cocoa powder
- Chocolate chips
Don’t feel restricted to chocolate! You can use fresh fruits like mango, berries, sprinkles and much much more..
Melt your white chocolate on a double boiler.
Once it has almost melted, add the butter and stir till a smooth consistency is achieved.
Set aside to cool.. Keep stiring occasionally.
In a mixing bowl,
Pour in thr heavy cream, vanilla essence and sugar and whip with an electrical beater.
Once combined ( usually 3 minutes at medium speed) , gently fold in the white chocolate and keep whipping. You will see the texture change yet again.
Finally you have to fold in the whipped cream.
Gently fold in the whipped cream part by part.
The consistency improves gradually.
Now, you have to take the call if this is the consistency you want, or you prefer your mousse a little more firm.
If you want it more firm,
Heat up quarter cup of water and add two table spoons of gelatin and stir vigorously.
Strain this mixture and add it into your mousse.
Pour this mixture into your mold And pop it in the refrigerator.
I prefer to not use gelatin, but depending on what texture you want to achieve, you decide.
Allow it to set for 3 hours.
Now, time for decoration.
So what I’ve done for this mousse is, cut out stencils of snowflakes and dusted cocoa powder onto it using a strainer and later topped it with white and milk chocolate chips.
Feel free to decorate it according to your palette.
And there you have it…
