White chocolate mousse
Two ingredient dessert. If you think making a dark chocolate mousse is too hard, then try a white chocolate mousse – only 2 ingredients and no eggs required. In this video I will take you through the process from scratch, including a forest fruits coulis to go with it. It is an easy dessert, fast to make, delicious and sure to impress.
For 4 people. For the mousse:
- 80 grams / 2.8 oz white chocolate.
- 220 ml / 7.4 fluid oz heavy whipping cream (has to have at least 33% fat) for the whipped cream and 30 ml cream to add to the chocolate.
For the forest fruit coulis:
- 100 grams / 3.5 oz frozen berries.
- A squeeze of lemon juice
- 10 grams / 2 teaspoons white sugar
- Keep the cream in the fridge and a bowl in the freezer.
- Boil half a saucepanful of water, turn the heat off, place a bowl above (but not touching) the water and place the chocolate in the bowl. The chocolate will melt.
- Warm 30 ml of cream slightly, and slowly and gently blend it into the chocolate. Take the bowl off the heat when the chocolate is melted.
- Take out the bowl in the freezer and whisk the heavy cream in it until it is whipped. Do not over-whisk as it may become buttery.
- Fold the whipped cream into the melted chocolate. Start with ¼ of the cream and gently mix in. When that is incorporated, fold the rest of the cream in. When properly done, place the bowl in the fridge for at least 15-20 minutes, after which, using a spoon plunged into hot water and then dried, the mousse can be formed into quenelles.
- To make the coulis, warm (but don’t cook) a quantity (say 100 grams) of mixed berries and pass through a sieve. Add a drizzle of lemon and say 2 teaspoons of sugar and stir.
