Lemon and White Chocolate Mousse

Lemon and White Chocolate Mousse ~ light, refreshing and zesty! #LemonMousse #ChocolateMousse
Our family loves any kind of mousse for dessert, whether it be a fruit based or chocolate based, they are always a welcome dessert.

This lemon and white chocolate mousse is no exception, and as we normally have either very rich or spicy main meals, this is the perfect dessert to end a meal.

The chocolate's flavor comes through much sharper than the lemon, however if you prefer a more zesty mousse, increase {or even double} the grated lemon peel. I have noticed adults prefer the more zesty, but kids again want the chocolate taste to be stronger.

LEMON AND WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
