White chocolate mousse

When I first made dark chocolate mousse, my friends asked me right away "what about white chocolate mousse?" Not a big fan of white chocolate, I thought it would make too sweet of a dessert. But being curious and always looking for new dessert recipes, I decided to try.

In the end, I mixed and adapted a few recipes that I found on the web and the result was quite surprising. I decided to add only very little sugar and to incorporate eggwhites in the recipe to have a more fluffy mousse that is not too sweet (white chocolate is already quite sweet).
The white chocolate mousse with some strawberries was quite a success and I like this recipe very much. I would recommend it as a light-ish dessert in the summer, it's just perfect!

Recipe of white chocolate mousse (6 portions)

200 g white chocolate
2 eggyolks
2 tbsp sugar
0.6 dl cream + 2.4 dl (3 dl total)
2 eggwhites
a few drops of lemon juice
berries, mint

Chop up or grate the white chocolate in a big bowl. Whip up the eggyolks with the sugar until almost white. In a small saucepan, warm up 0.6 dl of cream at low temperature until right before it boils. Add the cream to the egg-sugar mix, carefully mix and put back in the saucepan. At low heat, mix with a wooden spatula until the cream covers it. Transfer the warm cream to the white chocolate through a sieve. Mix the cream and chocolate until obtaining a smooth mix (the chocolate has to melt entirely).
In separate bowls, whip up the 2.4 dl cream and the 2 eggwhites. Right before stiffening add the drops of lemon juice to the eggwhites. Fold in the whipped cream in 2 times in the chocolate mix. Then carefully add the stiff eggwhites. Transfer the mousse in 6 small pots and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Decorate with berries (strawberries are my favorite with white chocolate mousse!) and some mint leaves. Enjoy :-D


  1. OMG I love your interpretations (every single one of them), they are fantastic - let me know when you have them published, I know several people for whom "Lauras recipes" would be the ultimate birthday/wedding gift plus I can say, I know the author ;)
    Happy backing
