White Chocolate Mousses...

I was at my Nan's a little while back, casually flicking through the pile of recipe leaflets she likes to keep for a rainy day and stumbled upon one by the baking legend that is Mary Berry. I'm not ashamed to admit that whenever there's a new series of The Great British Bake Off on, you'll find me glued to the TV pondering why my Victoria Sponge never seems to rise quite like it's supposed to. 

Whilst thumbing the pages of the freebie leaflet, one particular recipe caught my eye: White Chocolate Mousses. I instantly wanted to try making these little beauties but had to wait for a reason to make them. That finally came a few weeks ago when the family came to visit. The best thing about these is they don't require any cooking and can be made up to 12 hours in advance!

To make 6 of these indulgently chocolatey mousses you'll need:
- 40g plain chocolate
- 75g of Hobnobs
- 225g strawberries
- 200g of 100% Belgian white chocolate
- 200g full-fat cream cheese
- 200g full-fat creme fraiche

1. Melt the plain chocolate over a pan of simmering water
2. Add the coarsely crushed biscuits to the melted chocolate
3. Use a metal spoon to press the mixture into the bottom of the rings/ramekins - allow to set in the fridge
4. For the mousse, melt the white chocolate in the same way as the plain chocolate, stir until smooth then set aside to cool and firm up
5. Add the cream cheese and creme fraiche, mix until smooth
6. Neatly arrange the thinly sliced strawberries up the side of the rings/ramekins - spoon the mixture onto the biscuit bases
7. Chill until firm or cover and chill for 12 hours over night

If you love chocolate then you have to give these a go - let me know if you do!


  1. I'll have to keep this in mind the next time I'm making a dessert! It looks so good. Nice post :)

    1. You should definitely give them a go, they are dessert heaven!
