White Chocolate Mousse no eggs, no butter!

I love chocolate mousse.

It’s one of those classic desserts┬áthat is perfect for any occasion.

You just can’t go wrong with it.

And as much as I love Julia Child and her chocolate mousse, I have to stay away from it if I want to fit into my bikini….

And I’m very particular about my cream cheese frosting, the stuff from the can does nothing for me! I like my cream cheese frosting tasting well like cream cheese! I hate when it’s overpowering sweet and all I can taste is the sugar, yuck! So this frosting is fricking wonderful! I could eat an entire bowl of it, and well I did… But really, it’s mind-blowing!
