Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 446kcal


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips or bar broken into chunks
  • 3 tablespoons powdered (confectioner's) sugar
  • Edible Glitter, optional (for sprinkling)


  • Heat the cream in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat until it's very hot but not yet boiling.  Add the white chocolate and stir continually until melted.  Remove from heat.  Note:  The mixture may look a little yellow but it will whiten as it cools.  Pour the mixture into a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate overnight.
  • Once thoroughly chilled, beat the mixture with an electric mixer until it begins to stiffen. Add the powdered sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.  For a pretty presentation, pipe the mousse into the stemware or pastry cups. For a fancier look, sprinkle with edible glitter.
  • Refrigerate the mousse until ready to serve.  Can be made well in advance.
