White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse
Take a classic vanilla bean mousse and add in white chocolate and raspberry sauce to make an extra special Valentine’s Day dessert!
Happy Friday friends! How are you? I hope you are doing well. This has been a good week! I feel like I accomplished a lot in the lab. For once my experiments worked, got some good results which made me happy. Anyway, let’s get the party started for these white chocolate raspberry mousse cups. It’s a week away from Valentine’s Day and we need more desserts in our life (am I right?).
Light and airy mousse is one of my favorite easy desserts to whip up when we are having company. Heck, just for us sometimes. It’s quick, creamy, and most times so pretty. Especially for my husband who loves peanut butter chocolate mousse.
For this white chocolate raspberry parfait, I whipped up a vanilla bean mousse with some melted white chocolate folded in. It’s so rich and delicious. Add a ripple of fresh raspberry sauce and some raspberries and you have yourself a beautiful mini dessert.
I can’t sell this more than this is an easy, decadent and delicious dessert.
These will be great for any dinner party, special Valentine’s Day dinner, or just when you feel like a creamy good dessert!

White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse
Take a classic vanilla bean mousse and add in white chocolate and raspberry sauce to make an extra special Valentine's Day dessert!
For the Raspberry Sauce:
- 1 ½ cups raspberries
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 4 ounces white chocolate, chopped
- 2 cups heavy cream, divided
- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- Shaved chocolate for topping
- To make the sauce: In a small saucepan, combine the raspberries, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, mashing the berries with a spoon. Remove from heat and press through a fine-mesh sieve using the back of a spoon. Collect sauce in a bowl. Refrigerate until cold.
- For the mousse: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate and ¼ cup heavy cream. Microwave in 30 seconds intervals, stirring in between until chocolate is melted. Let cool completely.
- In a large bowl, beat the rest of the heavy cream with a mixer on medium-high speed until foamy. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Beat until soft peaks form. Remove about a cup (eyeball it) of the whipped cream mixture and whisk into the melted chocolate. Fold in the rest of the whipped cream into the chocolate until combined.
- Divide half of the mousse among 6 small glasses or ramekins. Top with each with a tablespoon of cooled raspberry sauce and a few raspberries. Top with remaining mousse, sauce, and raspberries. Sprinkle with shaved white chocolate. Refrigerate until cold, at least 30 minutes before serving.

Glad you had a good lab week! And now it’s Friday. Yippee! Love love love this mousse!
Not sure I can wait until Valentine’s Day for this mousse, it looks amazing! And, yay for lab experiments working!!
Ummm maybe you can send some of that luck my way?? Because NOTHING IS WORKING. Maybe if I ate a few of these mousses?? I think that seems like a reasonable solution.
O sorry my dear. Some weeks are just like that but then Monday rolls around and it is amazing!! Hang in there and yes mousse makes everything better!
Mixed reviews on lab work here. Some stuff looking juicy, some stuff making me want to quit and sell pizza at campus corner.
ANYWAY, I am having trouble clicking on the email notification of a new post, instead of taking me here, it leads nowhere – not sure it’s happening only with me, but I decided to let you know. It happened to the last two new posts, by the way
love this white chocolate mousse….. such a perfect dessert for V-day!
Hhaha it is mostly mixed reviews and why I was glad one week went as planned. Now to quantify the data and hope it is actually significant. Yay Sunday evening project!
Thanks for letting me know. I had no idea it was acting up. I will attempt to figure out why the darn newsletter wont cooperate. Thanks again for the heads up.
So glad your week of lab went well and now you can indulge in this white chocolate mousse! It looks amazing!
What a beautiful dessert perfect for Valentine’s Day! I love the pretty raspberry sauce and I’m sure it tastes amazing with the white chocolate mousse!

Hi Zainab! I found your website from the Restored 316 Facebook group. Your site looks really great with the tasteful theme. I have it also. Can I ask how you got the circle pictures on your side bar to feature more desserts? Love how you made a category just for Valentines day on your homepage. 🙂 -Robin

Light and airy mousse is the way to go! These look delicious. And congrats on having a productive lab week <— those are THE BEST from the days when I worked in a wet lab. Having experiments work, it's like putting together a layer cake you've been working on for days and having it turn out *exactly* how you want ~ 🙂 bliss.
Thanks Sarah! And exactly the feeling!
Yay for good weeks! Though, boo for bosses who would actually yell. Is that a thing?? We don’t get compensated enough for that kind of stuff…thank goodness for lovely, bright mousse, I guess!! xoxo

Burning question: will you be my Valentine??
YES and YES!!
This dessert is SO pretty with these gorgeous layers, Zainab! I’ve never had a white chocolate mousse and it sounds like something I need to try. Lovely!
Oh yes!! White chocolate makes everything amazing!
This mousse looks creamy and would make a great Valentines treat.
Classic vanilla bean mousse ……..so delicious……….
Mine didn’t work out.. I made it with Ghirardelli white chocolate chips and melted them as instructed. The end product turned kinda off white and is super liquidity.. any ideas where I messed up?
Hi Pancho, it would be hard to troubleshoot why it didn’t work for you without many details. It would be very hard for a mousse to be liquidy if you whipped the heavy cream to stiff peaks. The melted and cooled Chocolate will be folded in however if you didn’t cool the melted chocolate, it could liquify the whipped cream. I’m sorry I can’t pinpoint the issue without more details.
