Introduction: White Chocolate Mousse

While in a legal sense, "white chocolate" is not actually chocolate because it contains no cocoa, almost everyone regards it as a type of chocolate - as this Instructable will.  White chocolate is the smoothest and creamiest kind of chocolate.  It has an extremely low melting point so it melts in your mouth releasing all of its sweet, satisfying flavor. 

This Instructable will teach you how to make White Chocolate Mousse, a rich-yet-light, sweet and satisfying dessert that will take care of your sweet tooth, while leaving your pallet refreshed.  White ChocolateMousse is very easy to make and requires very little equipment.  Top your White Chocolate Mousse with fruit  of your choice to add an extra flavor dimension to your dessert.

Read on a soon you can enjoy your very own White Chocolate Mousse.

Step 1: White Chocolate Mousse: the Movie

This video demonstrates how to make White Chocolate Mousse.  Plus, in the video, the mousse is made by LEGO people.  Cool.

After the video, read the remaining steps in this Instructable for more in-depth directions.


Step 2: Ingredients and Equipment

The following ingredients will be required to make White Chocolate Mousse:
  • 7 ounces White Chocolate Chips
  • 2 cups Whipped Topping
  • 1/4 cup Half and Half
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • Blackberries (or  any other fruit)
You will also need the following equipment:
  • Two Glass Bowls
  • Measuring cups/spoons
  • Balloon Whisk
  • Individual Serving Dishes


Step 3: Prepare the White Chocolate

First, place the chocolate chips into a large glass bowl and set aside.  Soon we will be pouring a hot mixture of the other ingredients into this bowl so make sure that there is enough room to fit all of the ingredients and mix them.

Step 4: Mix the Egg Yolks and Sugar

Place the egg yolks and the granulated sugar in a mixing bowl.  Using the whisk, whip the mixture until it is lighter in color and thicker in texture.

Step 5: Incorporate the Half and Half

Microwave the half and half for 30 seconds or until it is almost boiling.

Then, slowly pour the half and half into the egg and sugar mixture while whisking vigorously.  Make sure that you do not add the half and half too fast and make sure that you whisk the mixture the entire time the half and half is being added or else you will make scrambled eggs instead of White Chocolate Mousse.


Step 6: Time for the White Chocolate

After all of the half and half has been added to the egg and sugar mixture, microwave the resulting mixture for 30 seconds.  Do not microwave the mixture for too long or else you will end up with scrambled eggs again.  The goal is simply to warm up the mixture so that it will be easier to incroporate the white chocolate.

Pour the hot egg mixture on top of the white chocolate.  Using a spoon, stir until the mixture is completely smooth and all of the white chocolate has been melted.

Step 7: Add the Whipped Topping

Working with about 1/2 cup of the whipped topping at a time, fold it into the white chocolate mixture.  Do not mix the mixture too violently as the goal is to lighten the mixture and make it fluffy.  Continue until all of the whipped topping has been thoroughly incorporated into the white chocolate mixture.

Step 8: Dish Out the Mousse

Once all of the whipped topping has been incorporated into the white chocolate mixture, distribute it among four serving dishes.

Then, top each dish with four or five blackberries or sections of whatever fruit you are using.

After that, refrigerate the White Chocolate Mousse for at least one hour to set.

Step 9: Serve and Enjoy

Congratulations, you have successfully created your very own White Chocolate Mousse.  Now, share it with your friends and family, or pets, or imaginary friends, or just eat it all yourself.  

Thanks for reading.
