I had a bunch of leftover white chocolate in my pantry from the holiday truffle escapade I had, so I put them to good use with this White Chocolate Mousse situation. Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Melted white chocolate gets folded into whipped cream and chilled for a bit in the fridge.  It kinda tasted like whipped cream with a bit of sweetened condensed milk (MY FAVE!).

We had ours on a weeknight last week and my family wondered what the special occasion was. I love how something so simple can be considered special. White Chocolate Mousse has the power to make an exhausting Monday into a real treat.
