Mangoes with white chocolate mousse

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 Egg yolks
1 cup Confectioners' sugar
¼ cup Dark rum
1 dash Pure vanilla extract
1 pounds White chocolate; melted
1½ cup Heavy cream; whipped
6 Ripe mangoes; 6 to 8, peeled and diced
2 dashes Almond Italian syrup
Fresh mint; for garnish

WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

TO ASSEMBLE

For the mousse, place egg yolks, confectioners' sugar, rum, and vanilla in a medium-size bowl and whisk to blend well. Place bowl over boiling water to form a water bath. Do not let the bottom of the bowl touch the water.

Whisk continuously until the mixture is the consistency of softly whipped cream, 4 to 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and cool to the same temperature as the chocolate.

Blend egg mixture and chocolate together with large strokes. Once chocolate is incorporated, gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.

Refrigerate until ready to use. To assemble the dish, place mangoes in a large bowl and toss with Italian syrup. Then distribute the mangoes among 6 to 8 large wineglasses or colorful bowls. Top with the mousse, garnish with fresh mint, and serve cold.

Serves six to eight. NOTES: With mangoes, this dessert has a tropical flair, but if you can't find really good mangoes try peaches or fresh berries. This is really pretty in a large wine glass, or fan the mango out on a dessert plate,

then top with the mousse.
