What do you do when you open the pantry door to find white chocolate staring out at you? You make a delicious dessert! This melt in your mouth white chocolate mousse with strawberry puree is pure chocolate perfection!
I’ve never met a dessert that I didn’t like but there’s just something about chocolate mousse that stands out from the rest. It doesn’t matter if it’s white chocolate, dark chocolate or anything in between because I love it all!
I came across some white chocolate in the pantry the other day when a light bulb went on over my head. Since I had a little extra time, along with a sweet tooth, white chocolate mousse just seemed like a great idea! It was great on it’s own but I wanted a little something extra. Adding strawberries makes everything healthier, right?
Anyway, I dare you to stop at just one bite of this amazing dessert. It’s so melt in your mouth good that you’ll want to eat the entire bowl!
