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

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

  • Meanwhile, whip remaining 1 3/4 cups cream to soft peaks. Fold into chilled chocolate mixture. If not using immediately, refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 day.

Excellent! This mousse is incredibly smooth and velvety. I didn't have a food processor so I used an immersion blender and it turned out beautifully. It was perfect for my white chocolate raspberry entremet.

Super simple and comes together in 15 minutes. With some trial and error, here are my suggestions: Chill the white chocolate and heavy cream in the ice bath until it is very thick, almost gummy. Whip the heavy cream to just before heavy peaks. Mix in 1/4 of the whipped cream into the thick white chocolate mixture to loosen it, then gently fold in the remaining whipped cream. I chilled the mousse in the fridge for an additional 10-15 min to help it set. It piped beautifully.
