1 cup fresh ripe strawberries
3 tablespoons sugar
12 oz good quality white chocolate, chopped (or you can use white chocolate chips)
1 1/4 cup of whipping cream
Combine the white chocolate, 2 tbls of the sugar and 1/4 cup of the whipping cream in a saucepan. Over low heat, cook the mixture (stirring often) until the white chocolate has melted. White chocolate has a tendency to lump so strain the mixture through a sieve into a mixing bowl and set aside to cool to lukewarm/room temperature stirring occasionally.
Wash and dry the strawberries. Cut the stems off and put them in a blender with 1 tbls of the sugar to puree them until the mixture is smooth.
Put the remaining 1 cup of whipping cream in a bowl and whip with a wire whisk attachment until stiff peaks form. Be careful not to overwhip!
Fold half the whipped cream into the strawberry/white chocolate mixture until well combined. Fold the remaining half in, transfer the mixture to a refrigerator safe bowl and chill the mousse until it’s set, about 6 hours or overnight.
