DIY Pear and White Chocolate Mousse

Yum! I am such a sucker for anything sweet. If it's sugary and tasty, I want to eat it. Plus, if it's cute to look at, watch out! This pear and white chocolate mousse I found at The Wedding Chicks looks so delicious, and it makes for a pretty display too. They would be perfect at the wedding, the shower, the rehearsal, anywhere! Give it a shot. Your guests will love it!

This comes straight from North Carolina Photographers, Hilton Pittman Photography.

1. Ripe Pears
2. Pear Brandy
3. White Chocolate
4. Heavy Cream
5. Butter
6. Sugar (Regular & Confectioner’s)
7. Sprigs of Mint

In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Cook the pears, stirring often, for 15 minutes or until softened. Stir in the regular sugar and simmer 10 minutes or until it starts to caramelize.  In a food processor, purée the pear mixture and brandy and set aside to cool.

6    eggs, separated
1    cup confectioners’ sugar
1/3    cup pear brandy
10    ounces white chocolate
4    tablespoons butter
2    cups heavy cream
Fresh mint sprigs (to garnish)

In a small mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks, confectioners’ sugar, and pear brandy. Use an electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes or until the eggs turn pale yellow and the mixture falls in ribbons when beaters are lifted. Transfer to the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Whisk constantly for 4 to 5 minutes or until quite thick. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; set aside.

In a saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from the heat. Stir the chocolate into the egg mixture until smooth. Cool to room temperature.  In a chilled bowl, beat the cream until stiff. Wash and dry the beaters. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form but the mixture is not dry. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, then gently fold in the whipped cream.
