291 – Orange Blossom White Chocolate Mousse / شوكولا موس البيضاء بزهر البرتقال
- 7 oz (200 grams) white chocolate
- 1 cup (20 cl) heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon orange blossom water (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
- Orange zest (for topping)
Step 1: Making the Mousse
This recipe makes around 4 large cups of mousse.
1- Place the cold heavy cream in a large bowl. Beat with an electrical beater (at high speed) for 5 minutes until the cream become fluffy with soft white peaks. Add the sugar all at once and continue beating for another minute.
Note: Make sure not to over beat the cream or it will become grainy!
2- Place the white chocolate in a bowl, and melt in a bain-marie (in a bowl over a boiling water).
3- Once the chocolate has completely melted, remove the bowl from the boiling water, and place it in the counter. Let it cool down for 5 minutes before integrating it with the cream.
4- Gently, fold in the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture using a spatula. Mix gently, with a circular movement, from top to bottom, so the mousse stays airy and fluffy.
5- Add the orange blossom water to the mixture and gently mix it in.
6- Place in cups. Put in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving!
7- Top with orange zest before serving!
