 Ingredients List

  • 16 oz White chocolate
  • 1 c Heavy whipping cream
  • 3 Eggs, separated
  • 1/4 c Brandy
  • 1/4 c Hot water
  • 1 tb Vanilla
  • 2 oz Sugar


White chocolate is not actually chocolate at all, but cocoa butter with the
chocolate liquor left out. This dessert was originally concieved as a dark
chocolate mousse by Chef Andrea Apuzzo of Andrea's Restaurant in Metairie,
Louisiana, when he was executive chef at the Royal Orleans Hotel before
opening Andrea's. It is served piped into a chocolate cup, which is then
placed in a pool of raspberry sauce.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. It's a good idea to
stand over the chocolate while it is melting and stir it until it's
completely melted, then take it off the heat immediately.

Whip the cream and set aside. Pour the brandy and hot water slowly into a
bowl with the egg yolks, whisking briskly as you go until completely mixed.

Whisk in the melted chocolate. Keep whisking even after the mixture is
completely combined; this will help to cool the chocolate. Whip the egg
whites and the sugar until peaking but not dry; add the vanilla to the egg
whites and sugar as you beat them.

Fold the egg-white meringue into the chocolate mixture carefully with a
wooden spoon.

Fold in the whipped cream. THIS IS THE MOST CRUCIAL PART OF THE RECIPE. The
key to a great chocolate mousse is that you can't incorporate hot melted
chocolate into whipped cream. The chocolate mixture must be cool to the
touch or the cream will break. Lightly blend the two mixtures until
uniform. Walt MM
