Peppermint-White Chocolate Mousse

White Chocolate-Peppermint Mousse

The season is upon us, and the kitchen elves here at Capers are knee deep in miniature dessert selections.  Our Peppermint-White Chocolate Mousse with Peppermint Dust and a Candy Cane seems particularly festive, especially served with a Peppermint Dust-laced House-made “Oreo”.

The mousse can be served in any small vessel – a shot glass, small demitasse, miniature mason jar – really anything that is about 3-4 ounces.  I purchased these miniature mugs at Crate & Barrel.

Here is our recipe:

Peppermint-White Chocolate Mousseserves 12

3 cups whipping cream
24 oz. white chocolate, chopped
1/2-3/4 tsp. peppermint extract
24 miniature candy canes

1) Warm half of the cream in a saucepan, over low heat until steaming, add white chocolate, and remove from heat.  Stir constantly until the white chocolate is melted.  Add peppermint extract, stir, and cool completely.
2) In a mixer, whip the remaining cream until firm peaks are present.  Fold peppermint-white chocolate into whipped cream, and spoon mousse into 12 individual containers.  Chill for a minimum of 2 hours.
3) Chopped 12 candy canes.  Garnish each serving with chopped candy cane dust, and a miniature candy cane.  Serve with a holiday cookie.
