IN THE KITCHEN: Candy Cane White Chocolate Mousse

3 Dec

As we approach yet another fun-filled holiday season, we all look for creative ways to set our holiday party apart from the rest. Paired with a simple white chocolate mousse, Candy Cane, Fluffpop’s newest flavor creation, will do just that! Our very own Chef Antonia shares her special recipe for a dessert that will have your guests coming back for more.

ImageINGREDIENTS:

Serves 6

9 oz – White Chocolate

1/4 cup – Milk

1 1/2 tsp – Peppermint Essence

3 – Large Eggs, separated

1.5 cups – Heavy Cream

To decorate – red food coloring, candy cane sticks, crushed candy canes for rim of glass

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Heat chocolate and milk in large metal bowl placed over pot of simmering water until chocolate is melted and mixture smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in peppermint extract.
2. Meanwhile, beat egg whites and salt with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar, and beat until stiff peaks form.
3. Stir 1 cup egg-white mixture into chocolate mixture until smooth. Fold remaining egg-white mixture into chocolate mixture with spatula until no white streaks remain.
4. If making the pink and white layers, place half the mixture in a separate mixing bowl and fold in food coloring until just combined. Spoon alternating amounts of pink and white mousse into six 1/2-cup capacity serving glasses. Chill for 3-4 hours or overnight in the fridge. To serve, top with whipped cream (made from heavy cream) and a sprinkle of crushed candy canes.
