White Chocolate and Ginger Mousse

August 16, 2012

Lover’s Pudding

This is definitely a chocolate lover’s dessert.  Rich, thick and creamy, it is a perfect dessert to relax with.  I had this the day before my graduation and it certainly stopped the nerves.  You only need to pour a little in the glasses, but I topped my wine glasses half full to give loved ones a  heavenly delight.  All I heard during this meal was “mmmmmm” and “aaaaaaa” 🙂

This recipe was adapted from Lorraine Pascale’s ‘Home Cooking Made Easy’ (HarperCollins Publishers, 2011).

Ingredients:

150g creme fraiche, 300ml double cream, 300g white chocolate, 2cm stem ginger (peeled and finely grated).

Method:

1. Put the creme fraiche in one bowl and the double cream in another.
2. Mix up the creme friache until it becomes a little thinner.
3. Mix the double cream until it is the same consistency as the creme fraiche.
4. Stir the fraiche into the cream.
5. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a simmering pan of water.
6. Slowly add the chocolate into the fraiche mixture, mixing after every spoonful.
7. Fold in the ginger then mix until everything is silky smooth and the lumps are gone.
8. Divide the mixture into wine glasses depending on how much tlc you need.
9. Leave in the fridge to set for 2 hours minimum. (You can leave them over night.)

Saffy’s Top Tip

I ate mine with some fresh berries and fresh mint leaves, adding fruit can make a huge difference to those who find the mousse too creamy and chocolatey.
