  • 1 cup White chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream

FOR THE MOUSSE

STRAWBERRY SYRUP - WILL YIELD 1/3 cup

  • 1 cup Fresh Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup tablespoon of Granulated Sugar
  • 2 teaspoon Strawberry extract

AGAR AGAR MIX

  • 1.5 teaspoon Agar agar powder or Unflavored veg gelatin
  • 2 tablespoon Cold Water

Instructions

PREPARING THE STRAWBERRY SYRUP

  • Wash and clean strawberries. Trim the top off. (read notes above)
  • Combine strawberries and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
    Fresh Strawberries
  • Lower the heat and allow it to simmer for 10 minutes until the syrup thickens. Keep stirring occasionally.
  • When the strawberries are all mushy and the syrup has thickened, take it off the flame and allow to cool. TIP - Taste, if the syrup taste tarty, then add extra sugar and boil for few more minutes.
  • When completely cooled, coarsely puree it with an immersion blender. Add essence and set it aside. Measure the syrup - you will require 1/3 cup of thick syrup.

AGAR AGAR PREPARATION

  • Combine agar-agar with 2 tablespoon water.
  • Whisk it well.
  • Allow it to bloom for a 5 minute.

ASSEMBLING THE MOUSSE

  • Meanwhile prepare white chocolate base. Measure white chocolate.
  • Combine white chocolate and cream in a glass bowl.
  • Heat a pan 1/2 filled with water over low heat. When it begins to simmer, lower the heat and place the chocolate bowl over the water. Keep stirring the chocolate as it softens and melts.
  • Add agar-agar that was prepared earlier in the recipe. Whisk to combine. Take it off the flame.
  • Add cooled strawberry syrup that was prepared earlier to the chocolate mixture. Make sure the strawberry syrup is cool and comfortable to touch before you add it to the chocolate.
  • Whisk to combine. Allow this mix to sit for 5 minutes over the counter. Keep stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, prepare homemade whipped cream or you can use the store bought one. If using the store bought whipped cream, thaw it for 20 minutes on the counter.
  • Add strawberry-chocolate mix to whipped cream.
  • Gently fold the strawberry mixture into the cream until combined. Do not beat the mousse.
  • Pour into individual cups and chill for 5-6 hours or overnight.
  • Or chill until firm.
  • All set mousse.
  • Just before serving, garnish with additional whipped cream, if desired.
  • Decorate with freshly sliced strawberries and some chocolate shavings and serve.
