This is a super easy and incredibly delicious white chocolate mousse that seems sophisticated to serve as a fancy and very pretty dessert.  It is a simple blender recipe.  First the chocolate chips and boiling water are blended together in the blender to melt the chocolate. Scrape down the sides and blend until all is incorporated. Then add the remaining ingredients except the sweetener, blend and taste.  Then add liquid sweetener to make the mousse as sweet as you would like it to be.  It is that simple!!  I hope you will try it.  Obviously if you don't have white chocolate chips, you can use dark chocolate chips instead.

A sweet, smooth, creamy and light mousse like this could be considered a delicious pudding. My husband loved this dessert.  There was a friendly rivalry for the last one, which we ended up sharing in any case.

If you don't have pasteurized eggs, don't panic.  You can place your egg in boiling water for exactly 1 minute.  Problem solved.  

To garnish this dessert top with a pretty swirl of whipped cream or my favorite Creme Fraiche recipe which holds up better, has a better mouth feel and is all-round fabulous for topping many desserts, including this one.

If you don't have a blender, you could potentially place the white chocolate chips in a bowl along with the boiling water and just let it soften naturally, and then proceed.  I haven't tried it that way, but that is a possibility.

This mousse would be a good frosting for cupcakes or you could use it as a filling for cakes. You could also garnish this dessert with chocolate shavings, if desired, or even white chocolate curls for a fancy flair.  The possibilities of dressing this dessert up are many.  You could even top it with a sliver of maraschino cherry.   You could top the dessert with fresh berries of your choice.  That would be very pretty and tasty as well.  Raspberries would be a good choice.

Heavy whipping cream or whipping cream (not sure if they are the same) is what is required in this dessert.  This white chocolate mousse recipe would be a good go-to recipe when time is a factor or if you don't want to go to too much trouble.  Easy peasy, quick and the results are so satisfying and pretty.  Perfect dessert for a dinner party that is heavy on the meal and you'd like something light for dessert such as this White Chocolate Mousse recipe.  

You could cover the dessert with plastic wrap if made the day before and on the day of the party, garnish it.  The white chocolate flavor comes through very strongly.  I used a rubber spatula to remove all the chocolate mixture from the blender.  Since only the yolk of an egg was used, this dessert does not have any eggy taste at all.  The egg just helps it hold together better and gives this white mousse recipe a nice smooth mouth feel.



6 oz (1 cup) sugarless white chocolate chips (180 g)

1/4 cup boiling water (60 mL)

1/2 cup heavy cream (125 ml)

1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract (2 mL)

Liquid sweetener, to taste


Whipped Cream, OR Creme Fraiche (click for recipe)

Toasted shredded coconut*




In blender, place white chocolate chips and boiling water.  Blend, scraping sides occasionally until chocolate melts.  Add heavy cream, egg yolk and vanilla extract.  Blend.  Taste and add liquid sweetener, to taste. Pour into 4 pretty serving glasses.  Top with a swirl of whipped cream and toasted coconut.


Helpful Hints:  Use a pasteurized egg or place the egg in boiling water for exactly one minute before removing it.  *To toast shredded coconut, place coconut in a dry nonstick frying pan and over medium heat, heat the coconut until it turns a light golden brown color.
