White Chocolate Mousse

Servings 6

Ingredients
  

Mousse:

  • ½ cups good quality white chocolate, chopped
  • cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Chocolate Sauce:
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • optional: 1 tablespoon Kahlua

Instructions
 

Chocolate Sauce:

    Place the chocolate in a metal bowl.

      Combine the cream and corn syrup in a small-medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.

        Carefully, pour the hot liquid over the chocolate and allow it to sit for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chocolate has melted.

          Whisk, add kahlua (if using) combine well and allow sauce to slightly cool.

            Mousse:

              Chill the mixer bowl and whisk attachment.

                Place heavy cream and sugar in the chilled bowl; using an electric hand mixer, whisk on high-speed until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until ready to use.

                  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.

                    Using a rubber spatula, fold in 1/4 of the whipped cream into the melted white chocolate until smooth. Add the remaining whipped cream to the chocolate mixture and gently fold until combined.

                      Divide chocolate sauce among 6 serving cups, then pipe or spoon mousse over layer of sauce. Place in refrigerator until chilled. Dust with cocoa powder and grated chocolate.
