white chocolate mint mousse recipe


White chocolate mint mousse
I have made this several times and it always goes down well with everyone who loves it!
So I thought to share the recipe with you guys so you too can enjoy it!
And what is so great is that this recipe is so easy! I now even melt the chocolate (carefully!) in the microwave to shave off even more time!

Directions

Put the pieces of white chocolate in a bowl, and sit this bowl over a pan over simmering water until it melts, stirring gently with a spatula every now and then. When it's melted, stand the bowl on a cold surface to cool down a little. 

In another bowl, and using an electric handheld whisk for ease, whip the cream, egg white and extract together. You want soft peaking rather than a stiff mixture.

Put a big dollop of cream onto the slightly cooled chocolate and mix, and then gently fold the chocolate mixture into the cream.

Divide mixture between 6 small but perfectly formed glasses with a capacity of 60ml/ 1/4-cup each.

Chill in the fridge or give them a fast icy zap but sitting them in the deep freeze for 10 or 15 minutes. Decorate top with a mint leaf before serving.

my tip is if you like your mint, minty or hardly there, taste as you go when you add the mint essence. you can add more  if desired.

Go ahead! Enjoy this recipe! Its lovely and its like eating that wonderful scrummy cake frosting we all love!


What you think?
