White Chocolate Mousse

We use this white chocolate mousse as part of our Birche de Noel recipe.

  • yield: Makes 5 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope (7 grams) powdered gelatin
  • 12 ounces best quality white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Dissolve gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water, and set aside for 5 minutes. Place chocolate in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until very finely chopped.

  2. Step 2

    Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Place 3/4 cup cream in a small saucepan, and bring just to a boil over medium-high heat. Add gelatin, and stir for 30 seconds to dissolve completely. Pour into food processor with the motor running, and process until chocolate mixture is smooth.

  3. Step 3

    Transfer to a medium bowl and place over ice water bath. Chill until mixture is thick enough to fall from a spoon in ribbons.

  4. Step 4

    Whip remaining 1 3/4 cups heavy cream to soft peaks. Fold into chocolate mixture. If not using immediately, refrigerate in an airtight container.
