White Chocolate Mousse Shots

It's 11:24 PM right now and I just want to apologize for my lack of words.
I keep telling myself to go to bed at 8 PM so I don't have these freaking dark circles under my eyes and then lo and behold I get suckered into random Google searches, Twitter updates, Pinterest browsing, online shopping, Instagram stalking, and lord knows what else.
And now it's almost midnight and I am just finishing up this post on  these beautiful white chocolate mousse shots. These taste amazing and I'm warning you now, they are tedious. I'm not one to post a long recipe, but this one is a bit time consuming.
Delightfully delicious, but difficult.
Night night. Xx


White Chocolate Mousse Shots

7 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream, plus 1 cup
Marshmallow fluff (optional)

1. Place the finely chopped white chocolate in a large glass bowl and set aside.

2. In a second smaller bowl add the egg yolks and sugar and whisk until pale in color.

3. In a small saucepan, bring 1/4 cup of heavy cream to a low simmer.

4. Once your cream is simmering remove from heat and very slowly add the cream into the yolk and sugar mixture to temper. Be careful not to scramble your eggs with the heat of the cream. Now pour the creamy mixture back into the pan over low heat and continue to stir with a wooden spoon until it coats the back of it.

5. Pour the hot mixture into a fine mesh sieve placed directly over bowl with the chopped chocolate. Stir until completely smooth. The heat of the mixture will melt the chocolate.

6. In yet another bowl, (I know sorry!) whip the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream to stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the white chocolate mix spoonfuls at a time carefully until combined. Do not over fold. Sheesh!

7. Spoon the white chocolate mousse into serving cups and refrigerate until set, approximately 1 hour. We topped ours with marshmallow fluff and torched the tops for looks. It's just as yummy to serve with fresh berries though : )

NOTE: You can buy the little mini mason jar shot glasses I used on the left-hand side.
