White Chocolate Ricotta Mousse


I've been looking for a gluten free dessert for awhile now. I'm pretty much obsessed with cupcakes, and if I'm going to eat a cupcake, it won't be gluten free (I can taste the difference). So I just need a new dessert completely. After scouring the internet for gluten free desserts, I ended up coming across a pretty interesting one - white chocolate ricotta mousse - and since I like ricotta and I like white chocolate, I decided to try it.

One Whole Foods trip later, and I followed the directions on the recipe which really was only one thing, mix all ingredients in a food processor. Yeah, well since the ricotta was cold, the melted white chocolate seized up, and I was left with a mess. But I refused to quit (mainly because I was in the kitchen all night, and I didn't want to be in the kitchen the next couple of nights). So I took a pot, placed everything from the food processor in it, and turned the heat to low. I wasn't fully sure what would happen - would it melt completely or burn - but I was surprised when everything melted together and looked like a legitimate mousse. I placed it in the refrigerator and an hour later, tasted it...and it was quite good. So I managed to make a delicious gluten free dessert in only 40 minutes. The next time it should take me only 10 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Take all of the ingredients and put them in a sauce pan. Turn heat to low; continually stir until all chocolate is melted. 2. Place in refrigerator til cool - at least 1 hour.
