White chocolate mascarpone cream

25 minutes


  • 50g of white chocolate, (I used Godiva white chocolate pearls)
  • 2 eggs, yolks and white separated
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 250g of mascarpone cream cheese
  • 150g of dark chocolate, (I used Godiva dark chocolate pearls)


Melt the white chocolate in a bain-marie then set aside to cool slightly. Beat the egg yolks together with the caster sugar and the scraped seeds from the vanilla pod for a few minutes until pale and creamy
Add in the mascarpone cheese and then pour in the cooled melted white chocolate. Stir until smooth and well combined
In a separate, very clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the mascarpone and egg mixture and spoon into serving glasses; four or six, depending on indulgence levels. Chill for at least 1 hour
Just before serving melt the dark chocolate in a bain-marie and drizzle a little over each dessert and serve immediately
