White Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Recipes

This is a gourmet strawberry mousse recipe, which is probably unlike any mousse you have tried before. The combination of fresh strawberries and whipped cream is a classic one for a strawberry mousse, but the gelatin is great too. Not only does it reinforce and enrich the strawberry flavor, but also it gives this strawberry mousse recipe a really good consistency and stops it from sinking through the white chocolate cream layer.

You can melt the white chocolate in the microwave if that is easier than using a double boiler. If you are doing that, choose a low microwave power setting and stir the chocolate every minute until it is smooth, before adding it to the cream.

The wafer straw and mint leaf topping is simple and delicious and this is a great dessert to make for a dinner party. Not only does it score ten out of ten for taste but you can make it the day before, leaving you free to focus on the rest of the meal preparation. White chocolate strawberry mousse recipes are popular because the light flavor of white chocolate is so gorgeous with the fruity flavor of strawberries. The two are a perfect pair.

Photo Description:

This is a delicious dessert in red and white. Kids especially love the wafer straw because they can suck up some of the thick white chocolate cream or the strawberry mousse through it. The mint adds color. Two-tone layer dessert recipes like this one always looks good. The trick is to use something heavier for the bottom layer, else the top layer will sink through it. Using fresh strawberries and their juice, as well as strawberry gelatin, keeps this dessert looking bright red instead of an insipid pink. Served in wine glasses, this is a classic and stunning looking dessert recipe.
