“Although a real mousse, this recipe uses egg yolks instead of whites, and no gelatin. Make this in transparent dessert cups or stemware to "show off" the layers. If you can get candies flowers (hibiscus, rose, etc.) add one to each cup as a garnish just before serving. Preparation time does not include chilling.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix berries with powdered sugar and Creme de Cassis. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the dessert.
  2. Bring 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to a boil.
  3. Turn off heat, and add white chocolate to cream. Carefully stir until chocolate is completely melted.
  4. When chocolate-cream mixture cools to room temperature, add egg yolks and beat briskly.
  5. Whip the remaining 2 cups of cream, and fold into chocolate mixture.
  6. Dip the Lady Fingers in the lukewarm coffee.
  7. Prepare the dessert cups: place a layer of soaked lady fingers.
  8. Spoon on top a layer of mixed berries. Use only the berries, without the accumulated liquid. Save the liquid for later.
  9. Top with a layer of white chocolate mousse.
  10. Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours.
  11. Just before serving, drizzle on top a little of the berry mixture liquid.
