As Mother’s Day approaches, I really had to think long and hard about which recipe to post. How many mothers out there would actually prepare a meal on the very day that they are supposed to be celebrated, left to sleep in and languish lazily about on Sunday morning while other family members got on with the business of spoiling and toiling to honor the queen of their castle. But I figured this dessert was pretty and pink enough to call on the talents of spouses, teens and carefully guided little hands alike and we all know that nothing tugs at Mom’s heart strings more than good intentions, great effort and the giddy excitement that comes with being proudly presented with a homemade, imperfect confection from one’s offspring. So my suggestion is to leave your iPad lying around open on this page after loudly oohing and aaahing – someone in your house will pay attention and begin conspiring. This dessert is just far too pretty to ignore…
P.S. The original recipe which remains white is served in a glass bowl the white chocolate Lindt Lindor balls dotted over the top of it, slightly submerged in the mousse. A gorgeous presentation and less time-consuming.
8-ounces (250g)white chocolate, broken into pieces
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup (55g) sugar (extra fine if possible)
1 1/4 cups(300g) heavy whipping cream
2 bags of Lindt Lindor White Chocolate balls

I used pink cotton candy to decorate individual servings. Fresh raspberries or sliced strawberries would be a great garnish too. Garnish just before serving.
