White Chocolate Mousse with Summer Fruits

White Chocolate Mousse with Fresh Fruit

 

This is a great dessert that looks impressive but is really a simple parfait, a variation of the earlier White Chocolate Mousse Tarts (basically minus the tart).  It could just as easily be made with regular chocolate, or a combination of the two.  I used raspberries (it is National Raspberry and Cream Day today), blueberries, nectarines and strawberries, but you could use any fruit you prefer.  It’s not really even much of a recipe, but it sure is good!    

White Chocolate Mousse with Summer Fruit    

For each four servings:    

  • 3 c Heavy cream
  • 12 ounces white chocolate melted (or 8 ounces of milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate)
  • In medium-sized microwave safe bowl melt the white chocolate and 1/2 cup cream on high, stirring and checking at 30 seconds, then at 15 second intervals until white chocolate is almost melted.  Stir until white chocolate is completely melted. Cool to room temperature.     

    In chilled med bowl place remaining cream. Beat with mixer at med sped until soft peaks form. Fold half the whipped cream into white chocolate. Fold in remaining cream just until blended.   Spoon into dessert bowls, layering with fresh fruit of your choice (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines all make good choices) and garnish with a few chocolate sprinkles or curls on top.

      This looks wonderfully cool for a hot summer afternoon. I bet it would be wonderful with dark chocolate, also.
