Our Best White Chocolate Desserts
Rose Petal-White Chocolate Bark
Absolutely gorgeous and so easy to make, this white chocolate bark would make the perfect hostess gift or wedding favor. You can find white chocolate melting wafers in many grocery stores or craft stores, such as Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Just be sure to microwave at 50% in short increments as white chocolate is easy to burn.
White Chocolate Mousse
Take a shortcut to White Chocolate Mousse deliciousness by using a few store-bought items. Garnish with raspberries and mint and pretend you spent all day in the kitchen.
Salted Macadamia-White Chocolate Bars
If you like macadamia nut cookies, you'll love these white chocolate-macadamia bars.
Cranberry-Pistachio White Chocolate Bark with Sea Salt
Use the best-quality white chocolate you can find (not those labeled "baking chips"). Microwaving the chocolate helps keep the temperature below 92°, ideal for tempering.
Blood Orange and White Chocolate Cream Cups
Return toasted and cooled cups to the tray they came in. It's a steady base to use when filling. For ease, work with two spoons: one to scoop, and the other to scrape the mixture neatly into the cups. You can make the cups up to a day ahead.
Chocolate Pasta with Mascarpone-Vanilla Cream and Strawberries
While homemade chocolate pasta isn't hard to make, you can substitute 12 ounces of storebought chocolate pasta, which can be found online and in specialty stores. Of course, the recipe's active and total times will vary depending if you choose to make or buy the pasta. Don't skip the flaky salt or olive oil because, while they may seem odd in a dessert, they complement the pasta's subtle sweetness that almost borders on savory.
White Chocolate-Raspberry Pie
Talk about a match made in heaven! A sweet arrowroot cookie crust serves as the base for the perfect pairing of a creamy, dreamy white chocolate filling and fresh raspberries.
White Chocolate-Toffee Crunch Caramel Apples
Dip these apples in white chocolate to coat the bottom half, and then roll each apple in toffee crunch for an elegant twist on a classic caramel apple.
White Chocolate-Cranberry Cheesecake
This decadent cheesecake is a perfect addition to the dessert table.
White Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake
At Boka restaurant in Seattle, chef Peter Birk serves this extravagantly dense and creamy cheesecake that's big enough for a party. He infuses his base with fresh mint, but we opted to keep it simple and use pure peppermint extract.

Grand Marnier Meringue Torte
This grown-up birthday cake blends delicately crisp meringues, orange-scented cream, a hint of chocolate, and fresh fruit. Superfine sugar dissolves quickly into the beaten egg whites; if you can't find superfine sugar in your grocery store, make your own by processing granulated sugar in a food processor for about a minute. If you can't find clear vanilla extract, use regular vanilla extract; your meringue will be a little darker but just as delicious. Prepare the meringues up to three days ahead, and store at room temperature in an airtight container. Top with filling and fruit shortly before serving.
