Ingredients
  • 7 ounces white chocolate, chopped into very small pieces
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream, plus 1 cup
  • 12 fresh blackberries, for garnish
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish, optional
Directions
  • In a large glass bowl, place the chopped white chocolate and set aside.

  • Add the egg yolks and sugar to a small bowl and whisk until pale in color.

  • In a saucepan, over low heat, bring 1/4 cup of the cream to a simmer, and slowly add the cream into the yolk and sugar mixture to temper. Pour the creamy mixture back into pan and stir with a wooden spoon until it coats the back of it.

  • Pour hot mix into a fine mesh sieve placed directly over bowl with the chopped chocolate. Stir until completely smooth.

  • In another bowl, whip remaining 1 cup of the cream to almost stiff peaks. Fold half the whipped cream into the white chocolate mix to lighten and then fold in the remaining whipped cream.

  • Spoon the white chocolate mousse into 4 serving cups and refrigerate until set, approximately 1 hour.

  • Garnish each serving with 3 blackberries and a sprig of mint, if using.
