This is the third in a series of three white chocolate mousse tartlets for the holiday season, look to the end of the article for other recipes.
Although all three of the white chocolate mousse tartlets in this series have the same simple base, the toppings (or additions, if you would like to mix them in with the mousse) make all the difference. They elevate what is in its own right something magnificent. This is my personal favorite among the three.
The cranberry compote contrasts wonderfully against the sweet silkiness of the white chocolate mousse in a way it never could against a milk or dark chocolate. The flavors start out in-your-face, but then blend into something I can only describe as a symphony of flavors and textures unlike any I’ve had before, but I’ll be looking for it in other foods.
If I had to give a description of the way this tartlet tastes, I think I’d compare it to cranberry juice and vanilla bean ice cream, but that really does it no justice. It’s just so much more than that. You really just have to make this for yourself and see what the end result is. Trust me, you’ll love it. I did, and i usually can’t stand white chocolate.
