HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Start your year on a sweet note with this dessert recipe of White Chocolate Mousse and leave your comments.

Here is another interesting mousse that employs white chocolate. The specialty of this recipe is that it sets on its own, without any need for agar-agar. It is made with simple and easily available ingredients, making it ideal for any occasion. Fresh strawberry sauce tastes best, but when the fruit is not in season you can use strawberry crush; however, omit the sugar in that case to avoid over-sweetness.
