Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

I'm a big white chocolate fan. Also...I love raspberries. Put the two together and I'm a happy girl. I made this to take a function so I put mine in lots of little cups so it would serve lots of people but normally this serves about 6 - 8 depending on your dishes. I managed to reserve enough for one pretty little crystal goblet. You know...purely for picture purposes. Honest!

White Chocolate 
& Raspberry Mousse

1 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 10-ounce package frozen raspberries
1 cup powdered sugar

Allow raspberries to thaw then press through a sieve or strainer to remove seeds. Set aside.

Heat water in saucepan, with sugar, until sugar is dissolved.

Add chocolate chips and melt until smooth. Set saucepan in cold water to cool mixture. Place in the fridge until thoroughly chilled. Whisk smooth.

Beat cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form.

Combine raspberry juice and powdered sugar.

Fold half of the whipped cream into cold chocolate mixture and the remaining half into the berry mixture.

Pour into serving dishes and enjoy.  

Serves 6

Let's get going.

Drain the berries then push them 
through a sieve to remove seeds.


Then add the powdered sugar and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, heat 
the water and sugar together.

Then add the chocolate chips. 
Let them sit for about 5 minutes. 
Whisk to combine and smooth then 
chill in the fridge for a little bit.

Whip your cream. 
Now somewhere I lost a couple of pictures 
but after your cream is whipped, divide it in 
half between the white chocolate mixture 
 and the raspberry mixture. 
Gently fold the cream in. You don't want to 
 deflate the cream you just whipped into a frenzy.

Then in your serving dishes, put a little of each mixture.

Top with some fresh berries and serve!
