How to make white chocolate mousse.
Pour 200 ml of whipping cream into a pot, add icing sugar and bring it to boil. Remove from the heat, add white chocolate broken into pieces and stir until the chocolate is completely dissolved, then let it cool down.
Pour 200 ml of cold of whipping cream into a bowl and whisk until half stiff. At that point, add mascarpone cheese to it and continue whisking for a moment so that it thickens a little. Afterwards, add the cold but liquid chocolate and whisk with a hand mixer for about a minute – the mousse should thicken a little. Put the finished mousse into a confectionery sleeve and squeeze it into glasses or cups. Decorate the mousse with fresh raspberries and mint.
Good to know when making white chocolate mousse.
You can replace the mascarpone cheese with cream cheese.
When whipping the cream, be very careful not to overdo it. Sometimes a few extra seconds of whipping is enough and the cream is overdone. After adding the white chocolate to the whipped mascarpone and cream, I whisked the whole thing for about one minute. The mousse will never have a very stiff consistency, you should aim for a consistency between very liquid and stiff form.
You can replace the fresh raspberries with other soft fruits such as blueberries, blackberries or strawberries.
