My DH and I have been on 2 Princess cruises, and never before have I tasted a better mousse than the one they have! Recipezaar chef Nana Lee did the research to find this one. I haven't made it yet but can't wait!(I guessed on serving size and prep time) It was so heavenly & and I enjoyed it so much that as I was eating it on the cruise a waiter offered me a piece of bread to lap up the rest of it off my plate -how embarassing! But worth it!

Directions

  1. Bring the cream to a boil, reduce to a simmer and stir in the white chocolate until it has melted.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together well until the eggs have become lightly frothy and the sugar dissolved.
  3. Whisk the cream and chocolate into the eggs and return to the stove.
  4. Add the amaretto and cook over a moderate heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens to coat the spoon well. Do not boil.
  5. Cool to room temperature.
  6. Whisk the remaining cream to a stiff peak. Carefully fold the whipped cream into the white chocolate mixture.
  7. Cover the mousse with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  8. To make the Chocolate Mousse, simply substitute the 6 ounces of white chocolate with 6 ounces of chocolate.
