White chocolate mousse, one of those things for which you can wake almost everyone in the middle of the night. No, I’m not exaggerating. Wait until you try this recipe. A friend of mine hates white chocolate, but she almost begged me to make more of it. I consider this positive feedback.
Some advise upfront, only make this recipe if you have at least 3 or 4 guests or friends who help you eat, because this stuff contains quite a lot of calories. Eat at own risk!
By the way, I based this recipe on a recipe I found on smulweb.nl, which I optimized to meet my own standards and preferences.
First the ingredients:
- 2 egg whites
- 2 egg yolks
- 200 gr white chocolate
- 2 dl whipped cream
- 1 sheet of gelatin
The quality of the mousse depends mainly on the quality of the white chocolate, so don’t go for the cheapest type of chocolate.
The preparation will cost approximately 15-20 minutes, but you also need to put the end result in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours before you want to serve it.
First put the gelatin in cold water, and leave it there until you need it.
Cut the chocolate in small pieces and put them in a bowl.
Whip the cream until stiff peaks start to form. Put the whipped cream in the fridge.
Beat the egg whites (with clean whisks!) until stiff.
Beat the egg yolks until creamy.
Put the bowl with the chocolate in the microwave and melt it. Depending on the type of microwave this will take a few minutes. Just to be on the safe side, take it out every 30-60 seconds to stir, and to check that it isn’t burning. as soon as everything melted, wring the gelatin and add it to the chocolate. Put this in the microwave for 15 seconds and stir again.
Add the egg yolks, … and stir.
Add half the whipped cream, … and stir.
Add the egg whites, … and stir.
Add the rest of the whipped cream, … and stir once more.
That’s it. You can put the resulting mixture in some nice glasses and put them in the fridge for a few hours. It tastes great with banana and chocolate sprinkles.
