This is so easy! And so decadent. So fast to make, too. It is impressive to look at no matter how you dish it up.

Sometimes I fold plain raspberries into the mousse, sometimes I purée them and drizzle it over the top, or sometimes layer the mousse, alternating with whole and puréed raspberries.

I grow my own raspberries and freeze them in pint size bags—they last until spring for me.

I have also used the mousse as filling between layers of golden yellow and fudge cake layers. —kristy49

White Chocolate Mousse with Raspberries
  • For the mousse:
  • 8 ounces chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • For the raspberry purée:
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon framboise liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Fresh mint, for garnish (optional)
  1. Chill the mixer bowl and whisk attachment.
  2. Melt white chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl in the microwave on low power setting in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is smooth and completely melted. Set aside. (Alternatively, use a double boiler.)
  3. Place heavy cream and sugar in the chilled bowl and whisk on high-speed until stiff peaks form. By hand, fold in 1/4 of the whipped cream into the melted white chocolate until smooth and completely incorporated. Add the combined whipped cream and chocolate to the remaining whipped cream and use a rubber spatula to fold together.
  4. Purée or mash berries with the honey, lemon juice, and liqueur.
  5. Layer berries between layers of mousse; fold lightly into mousse for a marbled effect; or drizzle berries over top in pretty glass cups or dishes. They all look and taste terrific. A fresh mint leaf makes this really pop.

I use raspberry vodka instead of the framboise liqueur and it turned out great, not too sweet.

WWE 2K18 is going to be awesome. I can't wait to see the 2K Showcase being brought back. I hope the makers don't exclude it this time. And the Kurt Angle rumor needs to be addressed right now! Click here for more info

Do you think I could make this a day ahead? Or a few hours ahead?
