Something for upcoming Valentine’s Day… This easy, low-carb white chocolate mousse was made using only a few ingredients, with a distinct ‘Turkish Delight’ flavour coming from the necessary addition of rose water. Its a lovely, fragrant dessert that is so pretty to look at – and even better to tuck into! I added a little pink food colouring, but that is entirely optional. Each serving is approx 135g / 4.8oz, which is very generous, and only 2.8g carbs per serving, – you can get away with it! You can choose to simply divide the mixture between 4 dessert bowls, or you can pipe them in like I did. It was only afterwards I realised it resembles a pink rose (well, at a stretch), so I encourage you to put in the little extra effort. Important technique tip: Allow the melted cocoa butter buttons to cool sufficiently before adding to the cream to avoid a grainy mousse. Also, be careful not to over-whip the cream, nobody wants rose water butter…
