A question about a recipe: Hervé This' Chocolate Mousse

A96fd6af 27b6 4c99 9e98 12b2ffd9bafb  food52 02 07 12 7891

I have a question about the recipe "Hervé This' Chocolate Mousse" from Genius Recipes. This totally failed to thicken for me, despite trying the fixes suggested. I tried it with white chocolate, could that be the problem? For the record I ended up salvaging it with first a couple tablespoons of heavy cream whisked in, then folded in 2 egg whites that I'd beaten to stiff peaks. But this method did interest me! Any tips for better success?

oh no emily!you CANNOT just sub white choc for regular choc (because white choc isn't really a choc and has a totally different chemistry.) sorry kiddo. it's all a learning curve, that's for sure.
