we love it when people are inspired by our designs. so when blogger Sugar and Charm whipped up some white chocolate ombré mousse as an homage to our nourishing hand wash, we felt compelled to share the recipe everywhere. we hope you love the results as much as we do.
10 ounces white chocolate, chopped into very small pieces
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup heavy cream, plus 1 1/2 cups
food coloring (we recommend blue, orange and green)
chop the chocolate into fine pieces and place in a large bowl.
whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a small bowl until light and frothy.
in a saucepan, bring 1/4 cup of the heavy cream to a simmer over low heat. pour the heated cream in the bowl with the yolk and sugar mixture to temper. then, pour the mixture back into the saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon until it coats the back of it.
pour hot mix over the chopped chocolate. stir until completely smooth. let the chocolate sit until room temperature, but still melted.
in another bowl, whip remaining 1 1/2 cups of the cream to stiff peaks. fold half the whipped cream into the white chocolate mix to lighten and then fold in the remaining whipped cream.
to make them ombré, bring out several bowls. add a spoonful of the mousse into two separate bowls. dye one dark blue and then spoon a small amount of that mixture into the other bowl to make a lighter shade. in a piping bag, add the dark blue first, then the light blue and then white mousse. when you pipe it into the shot glasses, it will give it the ombré look. repeat the process with other colors.
serve and enjoy.
