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:

WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE SHOTS

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 6-8

WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE SHOTS

Ingredients

  • 4 Oz (120 grams) semisweet white chocolate chips (or bar cut into small pieces)
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 4 tbsp white sugar, divided
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large brownie/2 Oreos
  • Mint leaves for garnish

Directions

  1. In a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water (double boiler), melt the chocolate and butter. You could also melt them together in a microwave safe bowl in short intervals of 20-30 seconds and mixing between each interval.
  2. If you would like to add the egg yolks, now is the time. Let the chocolate-butter mixture cool down and whisk in the yolks. I have not used the yolks for making mine though.
  3. In another bowl, with the help of a hand mixer (or stand mixer), whip up the two egg whites until foamy.
  4. Add 1 tbsp of sugar and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  5. In another bowl (pre-chilled in the refrigerator), whip cold heavy cream with 1 tbsp sugar and vanilla extract until soft peaks form.
  6. Gently stir a couple of spoons of the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it.
  7. Fold the remaining whites into the chocolate mixture, gently but thoroughly.
  8. Now, fold in the whipped cream.
  9. Add crumbled brownie or Oreos into six individual shot glasses.
  10. Spoon the chocolate mousse into each glass.
  11. Top them with more crumbled brownie.
  12. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
  13. Serve with a mint leaf as garnish.

My Take:

Making sure that the bowl, whipping cream and the whip are all refrigerated before whipping the cream to into soft peaks not only reduces the whipping time but the whipped cream holds itself better.

Vegetarians can eliminate the eggs altogether.
