White Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

by Mindy on February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day to the readers we love!  I hope you all have fabulous and happy plans for this special holiday.  But just in case you don’t, or just in case you need a little pizzazz…  let me introduce (drum roll please)…  White Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Chocolate Dipped Strawberries!  (I know the title’s a mouthful, but I couldn’t figure out what to leave out!)  I have a thing for chocolate dipped strawberries.  They rank right up at the top of my “favorite things” list.  To illustrate this point, my husband proposed to me with 24 dozen roses, a diamond ring, and a box of chocolate dipped strawberries.  Now stuff decadent white chocolate mousse into strawberries dipped into creamy milk chocolate, and I really start to go weak at the knees.  These babies are my new favorites.  I know cheesecake stuffed strawberry recipes float around now and again, and I’ve tried a few of the recipes for them.  Let me just say… my stuffed strawberries kill cheesecake stuffed strawberries.  It’s not even a fair comparison. So are you convinced?

White Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Submitted by Mindy ~ The Sisters Cafe

3.5 ounces white chocolate squares (3.5 one ounce squares)
1 1/4 cups half and half
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3.4 ounce instant vanilla pudding mix
Large strawberries with stems removed and hollowed out (I used a paring knife to do this)
Chocolate Chips (Guittard chocolate chips work well)

Heat chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power for 2 minutes.  Stir until the bowl is no longer warm.  Continue to heat in 30 second intervals, stirring between until the chips have completely melted.  Dip the strawberries and place on wax paper or silpat.

In a microwave safe bowl, microwave white chocolate and 3/4 cup half and half 1 1/2 minutes.  Let sit one minute; whisk.  Transfer to chilled bowl.  Chill 45 minutes.  Add remaining half and half, cream, and vanilla pudding.  Beat until stiff.  Pipe into hollowed strawberries.

Remelt the chocolate chips at 50% power and pipe over the top of the stuffed strawberries if desired.  (I usually just use a sandwich bag with the corner cut out for this part).

These strawberries look and sound delish! But I live in Australia and was just wondering what product “half and half”?
Thank you.

Hi Naomi,
Half and half is a mixture that is one part milk and one part cream. So it would be easy to make up yourself! Hope you love the strawberries!

Oh, my family will love these. Any ideas how many strawberries you need? Thank you in advance!

Stephanie, I think it totally depends on how big your strawberries are. I think it was enough for at least a pound of strawberries when I made them last. Let me know how many this makes for you.
