Recipe courtesy of Strewn Winery, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. The notes on this recipe are as follows:

Here’s a change from dark chocolate — a soft, creamy white chocolate mousse that melts in your mouth. Decorate with dark chocolate cut-outs or serve with fresh berries when in season. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water, making sure the bowl is not touching the water.

This recipe won’t exactly make it into anyone’s dieter’s hall of fame, but your taste buds (and maybe even your soul) will thank you for it!
