This is an excellent recipe. It's easy and very, very tasty. Be sure to use fresh, premium white chocolate. If it's old, the mousse will taste stale. I added a little bit of red food coloring to the mousse. When it's topped with whipped cream and some peppermint bits, it makes a stunning presentation. Next time, I'm going to use raspberry extract. I'm also thinking of trying cinnamon, lemon, and root beer. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for sharing!
