White Chocolate Cups: Soft white chocolate mousse with fresh strawberry

 Tomorrow is the day ^^, and I know that some people still don't know what to do on this special day. When you don't have enough time, but still want to see your lover's smile, I think I can help, hehe.

White Chocolate Cups: Soft white chocolate mousse with fresh strawberry
 As I told you that I want to make all the recipes in this month of Valentine sweet ^^, so all of you will have a lot of idea to play with, but when the time is short what can you do.
This mousse can be an answer, it's very EASY to make and doesn't use a lot of your precious time (ok, admit that now you have to concentrate on you look, the big day is tomorrow, haha).  You can prepare it by using only 20-30 minutes and you can see how cute it is. 
But cute is not the only quality of this dessert it's very delicious too. This mousse is so soft and really melt in your mouth, it doesn't contain gelatin, so the texture is soft and velvety. My sister (who is my tester, hehe), told me that she just want to try a bit of it but end up eating the whole cup, she said that it didn't make her feel like eating anything heavy at all ^^. I think it's because the softness that make eating enjoyable and the refreshing taste of the strawberry that turn this simple dessert into something special. Actually you can use other kinds of fruit but for me, what can be more lovely than the cute strawberry heart, haha.

  5. Hi, Josephine

    Hi, ninazsyafinaz
    You're welcome !!!!

    Hi, Swee San
    It's Lindt's.

    Hi, Claire
    You will need to melt it 2-3times. Heat it for 20 second then stir it, heat again until all of the chocolate melt.

  6. wow even your strawberries are heart shapes! have a happy valentines pook :)

  7. hi!

    sorry for asking a simple question. What's the reason for not letting the hot water touch the bowl of white chocs? Will it take very long for the chocs to melt if the bowl is not in contact with the water? Thanks!


  8. Hi, Janine
    Thank you, Happy Valentine too

    Hi, Wen
    The reason is the air will condense into water, and small amount of water cause the chocolate to turn hard and grainy or "seize".

  9. I love eating strawberries with vanilla yogurt or vanilla ice cream. So good!

  10. Hi, I tried making the mousse using your recipe today but the mousse did not "set" and remain as liquid even after I have refrigerated it for a few hours. Is it suppose to be like this? Thanks!

  11. Hi, Cindy
    This one is very soft, as there is no thickening agent in the mousse, it will firmer after 12 hours.
