    Interesting. Sweet flavor. Had trouble with stiff peaks.

    I just made this for dessert at dinner. And it was amazing. The texture was so smooth and the flavour so rich. It was so easy yet so perfect! Thank you. :)

    Hi Debra,
    I chose this recipe because it had seven comments - the others didn't. I made it but didn't follow the recipe because I'm like that. I like to experiment and make my own dishes.
    I live in France and wanted to make a white chocolate mousse pie. I used a pre-made pie case because they are so good here that I can't make better pastry.
    Then I broke up 250g white chocolate, and melted it gently over a bain marie while the pie case baked blind. Next I added two large spoons of creme fraiche (you could use thick cream or greek youghurt); and the three egg yolks (as per your recipe). I whipped the egg whites with the sugar (I used white so as not to spoil the white choc colour). Finally I folded the stiff merangue mix and the choc mix and poured them into my pie case.
    It is now in the fridge. I'll garnish it with fresh strawberry slices and divide it up - 1/3 to our next door neighbours, 1/3 to a bachelor who is teaching us how to harvest wood for firewood, and the last 1/3 will be for my gorgeous husband who is working hard putting up a ceiling nearby. Bang. bang, bang goes the hammer as I write.
    It makes a big pie, measures 14 inches across so lots of eating in it. The mousse is very light and fluffy and rich.
    Bon appetit!
    Hopew you are motivated to try it!

    Geesh, who knew it'd be so simple?! I'm going to jot this one down. You know how sometimes you're thinking 'gee, I'd like something chocolate-y'? This will work PERFECT when that happens to me!

    Thanks! Colleen, Naperville, IL.
