White Chocolate Mousse with White Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

The white chocolate covered peanut butter balls in the following chocolate mousse dessert recipe are easy to make. This recipe actually makes about fifty so you will have some left over. You can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If you find the white chocolate covered peanut butter balls do not seem to be setting, you can put them in the freezer for a bit, while you get on with making the two different mousse recipes.

You can make this dessert in advance. In fact, you need to anyway, because the two mousses and the peanut butter balls all have to chill in the refrigerator before you assemble the desserts. The white chocolate mousse and dark chocolate mousse in this recipe are served in layers and the white chocolate peanut butter balls form the top layer. This dessert is a chocoholic’s dream because it combines two kinds of chocolate, as well as crunchy peanut butter balls on top.

The dark chocolate mousse is made with a pudding mix and tofu, and the white chocolate mousse is made with chocolate, vanilla and cream. It is nice to make one mousse with pudding and one the traditional way, because this means the two mousses taste very different and have different textures too.
