White Chocolate Mousse

There's one dessert that is synonymous with sheer decadence, and that's chocolate mousse. Make it white chocolate mousse and it's a special occasion! Pair it with fresh berries and you have a dessert that's simple to make, yet impressive and romantic. LOVE IT!

1/4 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

In a small saucepan, heat water and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Set saucepan in cold water to cool mixture. Place in the fridge until thoroughly chilled. Whisk again until smooth. Beat cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Fold into cold chocolate mixture. Spoon or pipe into serving dishes. Chill in the fridge until it's time for dessert!

For a lovely presentation, top with miniature chocolate chips, fresh raspberries and a sprig of fresh mint.
You can easily substitute other chips, such as semisweet, milk chocolate or even peanut butter chips.
Save time by making it a day ahead!
