This was my “red white and blue” dessert for celebrating Independence Day today! I had a great time celebrating with my in-laws today, and made this inspired dessert.  I wanted to create something light and fresh, because I’m really not a big fan of super rich heavy desserts in the summer.  This was perfect!

To make the white chocolate mousse, I just used chocolate, cream, and vanilla.  Nothing else.  Normally, mousse is made with eggs, but I didn’t want to make a classic mousse because I didn’t want the color to be too yellow.  It still had a mousse-like consistency though, and everyone enjoyed it.

This recipe is pretty basic.  I can’t really claim ownership because it’s so basic.

They would have definitely looked prettier if I had a piping bag, but I forgot to bring one when I went over to visit today, and spooned it instead, which is quite hard to do when you have a big spoon and a little strawberry.
