White Chocolate + Lavender Mousse

Yield: ~3 cups

White Chocolate + Lavender Mousse


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 50 g sugar
  • 85 mL whipping cream
  • 125 mL whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon lavender extract
  • 170 g (6 ounces) white chocolate, melted and cooled


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip the yolks and sugar on high speed until pale and thick. Meanwhile, add the 85 mL of cream to a small saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a simmer. With the mixer going, pour the hot cream into the egg mixture in a slow and steady stream. Once well combined, return the egg-cream mixture to the saucepan, and heat over medium until thickened. Remove from the heat, pour through a strainer into a bowl, and set aside to cool.
  • Add the 125 mL whipping cream and lavender extract to the bowl of the mixer, and whip on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Fold the egg-cream mixture into the cream, followed by the melted chocolate. Chill for one hour.
  • Re-attach the bowl to the mixer, and whip on high speed until thick, and the mousse holds it’s shape.
