By the time this post goes up, I’ll be up in the sky on my way to Tokyo, where I’ll be spending a day before heading to Mongolia. It’s going to be a long trip, but I’m so excited for many things.

I’m going to finally meet in person with my online foodie friends in Tokyo.

Also, I’m dying to see my little nieces and nephew in Mongolia who are growing way too fast.

I’m looking forward to spending a quality time with my family and friends over the next month. Exciting stuff, I know. But let’s talk about these delicious dessert to celebrate upcoming 4th of July!

In the spirit of red, blue and white, I’m bringing you this amazing white chocolate mousse.

Heavenly smooth white chocolate mousse is divided into three layers and lightened up with pureed strawberry and blueberry for a festive look!

Red, Blue and White Chocolate Mousse - Step-by-step

There are no egg whites required in this recipe. Thus, it’s super simple and effortless to make, despite its gorgeous festive look.

You can use either white chocolate bars, or white chocolate chips. I used white chocolate chips here. Either way, make sure to buy a good quality white chocolate, as it directly affects the final product. The Kitchn shared a few tips on how to choose the best white chocolate.

For presentation, I thinly sliced the strawberries for garnish and carefully placed them against the glass walls using long tweezers, but chopsticks or butter knife will work just fine.

Fresh strawberries and blueberries cut the richness of the mousse beautifully. Hope you have a fun a safe 4th of July celebration with your loved ones. Let me know if you try this dessert.

Red, Blue and White Chocolate Mousse

Simple, yet elegant this white chocolate mousse is perfect for your 4th of July celebrations!

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 teaspoon powdered gelatin
  • 8oz white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream, divided
  • ½ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup strawberries, fresh or frozen, plus more for garnish


  1. In a small dish, sprinkle the gelatin over 1 tablespoon of cold water. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
  2. In a small saucepan, warm ½ cup of heavy cream over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin. Whisk until gelatin is dissolved completely and pour over the white chocolate. With a rubber spatula, still the mixture until the chocolate is melted. (You can microwave it for 30 seconds, if the mixture is cooled.)
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the remaining ½ cup of heavy cream until hard peaks form. Gently fold in the whipped cream into white chocolate mixture. Divide the mousse into 3 equal parts in separate bowls.
  4. In a blender, blend blueberries and strawberries separately until smooth.
  5. Add blueberry sauce into one bowl, and add strawberry sauce into the second. Gently fold mixture.
  6. Put a few blueberries on the bottom of 5 Champaign flutes. Spoon some blueberry white chocolate mousse up to 1/3 of the way. Place slices of strawberries against the glass and then spoon some strawberry chocolate mousse up to 2/3 of the way. Top with plain white chocolate mousse. Refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap, until ready to serve, or for up to one day.
