White Chocolate Mousse Shots. Another week, another dessert. Dessert-lets rather. I don’t know who came up with the idea of having desserts in shot glasses, but they were a genius for sure! Just the right portion of sweet, soft and silky mousse with a dark chocolate brownie crumb…… And that right there is what you call a FOODGASM! 😀
You know the story. The my-husband-does-not-like-dark-chocolate-so-i-used-white chocolate story? Even if you don’t, I think you got more than just the gist from the title. They should use me as the script writer for movies. I can eliminate lots of bad movies with 1-line stories like these! 😀
O.K. Time to be honest. If there was another shotglass next to the white chocolate mousse shot with dark chocolate mousse in it, more than 90% of the times, I am going to be reaching out for the dark choc. BUT, I had a life changing experience with these white chocolate mousse shots. I am not exaggerating. So, it goes:
I made these amazing Drunken Brownies and decided to get creative with them. I made white chocolate mousse for Nachiket and assembled them in these beautiful shot glasses. Since I presumed I will not like it, I decided not to take pictures.
And then, as I was folding in the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture, I tasted it (to check the sugar you know) and that instant changed my life. I decided I do not hate white chocolate after all!
By the way, that very instant altered the serving size of the recipe too. I think the quantities make up about 7-8 shot glasses but constant tasting and not emptying the mousse bowl completely (so that you can lick it:P )made only 6 shot glasses!
Coming back to the recipe, I have used only egg whites in mine. You can use the yolks too but your mousse will have an off-white color and may be a little more heavy-set. Vegetarians can eliminate the whites too but I like adding them because they add some volume and lightness to the mousse. Here’s the recipe for:
