Blackberry & White Chocolate Mousse

The mousse was very easy to make, I almost always have the ingredients in hands.
It just happened that I had some white chocolate & blackberries, not very usual as I always stock dark chocolate & raspberry.
Anyway, I whipped them up in the morning, piped in a silicon mould & freeze.
Later, I popped them out & simply arranged with some rose syrup & blueberry jam I made sometimes ago.
It turned out to be gorgeous :)

White Chocolate Mousse
150 g whipping cream
75 g white chocolate
50 g milk
2 g sheet gelatine

In a small bowl, melt chocolate over simmering water then stir in milk, add bloomed gelatine & stir until dissolve.
In a large bowl, whisk whipping cream to soft peaks & fold in the chocolate milk.

Blackberry Mousse
100 g blackberry puree, about 175 g blackberries
10 g sugar
100 g whipping cream
2 g sheet gelatine

Blend blackberries into puree using electric blender, strain to remove seeds.
Warm the puree with sugar using microwave, add the bloomed gelatine & stir until dissolve.
Whisk the whipping cream to soft peaks then fold in the puree.

Simple Blueberry Jam
400 g frozen blueberries
100 g sugar
1/4 lemon, juice only
In a saucepan, combine all ingredients, cook until it thickens.
Pour into a sterile jar & keep refrigerated upto 3 weeks.
Rose Syrup
40 g fresh fragrant roses, red or pink
120 g sugar
250 ml water
1/2 lemon, juice only
10 dried rose buds

Rinse the rose petals with water & remove the white base.
Combine sugar & water in a saucepan, bring water to boil & stir to dissolve the sugar.
Add the rose petals, simmer for 20 min.
Add lemon juice & boil for 1 min.
Pour in a sterilised jar & keep refrigerated for storage.

Fill the moulds with white chocolate mousse, refrigerate to set.
Top with the blackberry mousse, freeze to set.
Remove from moulds, decorate & serve.

    1. hi, thanks for stopping by :)
      i haven't changed my blog layout for a long time... I've just included the e-mail function. hope it works fine.

  4. You're desserts look really nice and I would like to try this recipe, but I was wondering if you can substitute gelatin sheets for gelatin powder? If yes, how many grams should I use then?

    1. Hi there, you can substitute gelatine sheet with the powder, you can just dissolve in milk for the white chocolate or blackberry puree.

  5. Hi there, for the dried rose buds, where do we put it in when making the syrup?
