White Chocolate Strawberry Mousse

‘Tis the season for strawberries, and boy am I ever glad about that.  I love love love strawberries!  I eat so many during this time of the year that sometimes I wonder if I’m going to turn into Strawberry Shortcake.

After coming home from hoarding purchasing more strawberries, I made one of my very favorite strawberry desserts – Chocolate Covered Strawberries & Cream Pie.  As I was feasting upon one of my very favorite treats, I had the idea for this recipe – a white chocolate strawberry mousse.  And, I have to say…. this is now one of my very very favorite treats.

White Chocolate Strawberry Mousse

Let’s start out with one of the base ingredients – white chocolate.  Melt 1 cup of white chocolate chips in the microwave in 15 second increments until melted, being careful not to burn.  White chocolate is very tempermental – much like a toddler ;) Beat the white chocolate in with 1 8oz container of softened cream cheese & 1/2 cup confectioners sugar.

Whip together 1 cup of heavy cream, 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, & 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until thick & creamy.  Gently fold the whipped cream into the white chocolate cream mixture.
