The overall appearance of this dessert is mighty impressive, but don’t be fooled because it’s a total cinch to put together. Mousse can sometimes be a daunting task, but either I am really improving or this was super easy. I put it together on a weeknight in about 30 minutes! My favorite part? Piping it into glasses. Oh, how I love piping!
If you don’t like white chocolate, I don’t see why you couldn’t use dark chocolate in its place. It would taste like a chocolate limoncello! My husband on the other hand isn’t into ‘lemon’ or citrus desserts, so I was left eating most of this myself and then pawned the rest off on my neighbors.
Here is the recipe from Bon Appetit if you are interested! ***My only change was to use a glass bowl instead of a metal bowl to cook the lemon juice with the egg yolk for the custard because mine got a real tinny flavor the last time.
White chocolate melting with the cream
White chocolate melted and mixed in with whipped cream
The lemon custard should be about this thick

Lemon Mousse, complete!
Enjoy this lovely springtime dessert!
