As Dhanya preferred some sweet treat recipe, I have decided to share the recipe of this mini bite-size dessert with edible chocolate wrappers, which is white chocolate mousse in chocolate cups. I have used a super, super easy mousse recipe that requires just a little bit of heating, stirring, whipping and folding.I am sure that you all will love this. You can break the monotony of the usual mousse by serving them in these gorgeous looking chocolate cups.

Over here, i have used tempered chocolate for making the chocolate cups and also for the chocolate decorations. Whenever you make fancy chocolate decorations, you need to temper your chocolate first. There are several ways to temper chocolate, i have used the microwave method.

Okay if you ask, why should we temper chocolate? Well, the answer is if you don’t temper your chocolate, while decorating it will get unmanageable. It might stick to your molds, and the most important thing is that the decorations will melt away after sometime in room temperature, especially when you hold it. Pls don’t skip this step if you want a properly hardened and shiny appearance to the chocolate cups. And other thing to keep in mind, it is best that you use silicon cup cases so that you can take off the chocolate cups easily without breaking it.
