Strawberry White Chocolate Mousse Cups

The hubs and I spent the weekend visiting my parents. It’d been a bit since we’d visited, so it was nice to enjoy some time with them. The only problem was that we hit quite a bit of traffic on the way. It added an extra hour to our trip. To make that time go by a little faster, I turned on my super awesome 90s Pandora mix and drove the hubs crazy with my excellent sining and car dancing. I’m pretty sure I was an awesome singer in another life. 🙂

Speaking of awesome, these mousse cups down right rock. In fact, I referred to the strawberry sauce as “strawberry awesome-sauce” and it caught on when I served these to our church group. It really is an awesome strawberry sauce and I think it was everyone’s favorite part.

How to Make This No Bake Treat

The delicious strawberry sauce is really just chopped strawberries, sugar and a little water. The sugar draws the water out of strawberries, creating a “sauce” that is so sweet and yummy, I could drink it with a straw. The longer it sits, the better it gets.

And then the mousse is super easy to make – which is pretty awesome. You basically make white chocolate ganache, then gently fold in homemade whipped cream. It’s not a true traditional mousse, since it doesn’t have eggs. But it’s just as light and fluffy, plus it’s so easy to make.

Together the white chocolate mousse and strawberry sauce is a heavenly combo. They are so easy to make, too. They were a huge hit and I totally fell in love with them. I know you will love them too. 🙂

Scale

Ingredients

WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

  • 9 ounces (255g) white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup + 6 tbsp (330ml) heavy whipping cream, cold, divided
  • 1/2 cup (58g) powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

STRAWBERRY SAUCE

  • 3/4 cup (110g) chopped strawberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp water

Instructions

1. To make the white chocolate mousse, place the white chocolate chips into a medium sized bowl.
2. Heat 6 tbsp (120ml) heavy cream until it just starts to boil, then pour over the white chocolate chips. Cover with clear wrap and let sit for 3-4 minutes, then whisk until smooth. Sometimes the white chocolate doesn’t completely melt. If that happens, microwave white chocolate mixture in 10 second intervals, stirring well between each interval, until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
3. Whip remaining 1 cup (240ml) of heavy whipping cream in a large mixer bowl fitted with the whisk attachment. Whip until cream begins to thicken, then add powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Continue whisking until stiff peaks form.
4. Carefully fold about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cooled white chocolate mixture until combined.
5. Fold in the remaining whipped cream until well combined. Mousse will seem a bit thin, but will thicken in the fridge.
6. Divide mousse evenly between 5 cups or jars and refrigerate until firm.
7. While the mousse firms, combine the strawberries, sugar and water and allow to sit in the fridge for 1-2 hours. The sugar will draw water out of the strawberry, creating a “sauce”. Spoon the strawberry mixture over the white chocolate mousse cups before serving.

    Hi there! I have a question. I’m wondering if I can add a small sponge cake to this, layer it with the strawberries and mousse and have a strawberry shortcake type recipe. Do you think it would combine well?

    Hi Lindsay…These white chocolate strawberry mousse cups are gorgeous and look so refreshing! Will definitely try them soon. I made your Oreo Brookie Tiramisu (aka Slutty Tiramisu – haha!) for a family BBQ yesterday. It was a hit. Trying to be conscientious, I made a little sign for the lid that said “Not for kids – has Kahlua in it!” and walked off savoring my little serving – delicious by the way! – only to come back a few minutes later to see that my husband’s smart-aleck cousin turned the little sign over and wrote “Make sure your kids eat this!”……. Ah, there’s one in EVERY family! Anyway, I have been following your blog for a while now, but this is my first time commenting. I made your Funfetti Ice Cream Cake for my daughter’s birthday – she (and the rest of us) loved it! Last week, I made your Boston Cream Cupcakes…mmmmmm! I have to go back and catch up on your archives to see what other recipes and stories I’ve missed. I don’t do facebook, (yup, one of the few hold-outs still left!) but look forward to your emails showing up in my inbox. I wish you and your husband many blessings in your path to parenthood. I have read some of your posts detailing your journey. My husband and I had infertility struggles for several years, along with a miscarriage, and at the time, it seemed we would never have that family we wanted so bad, but now here we are with beautiful 15 and 13 year-old daughters. God is so good! Keeping faith and patience is not easy as you may know, but it is so worth it; and, before you know it, you will be raising teenagers…AAAAH! Seriously though, I will send up prayers for you that your dream of motherhood will be a reality. Take care, and thank you for sharing your recipes.
