White Chocolate Coconut Mousse and Mango Parfait

White Chocolate Coconut Mousse and Mango Parfait


Ingredients

Mango compote:
2 mangoes, cut into 1/4" cubes
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
Juice and zest of 1 lime

Cake layer:
1 cup of 1/4" cubes of store-bought pound cake (about 1/2 a loaf)
1/4 cup light rum

White chocolate coconut mousse:
14 ounces Santander White Coconut Chocolate, chopped into 1/2" pieces
2 cups heavy cream, divided

Garnish:
1 carambola (star fruit), thinly sliced


Preparation

1. Make compote: Combine sugar, water, lime juice and lime zest in saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar completely dissolves and mixture begins to caramelize. Pour syrup through a strainer onto cubed mango and allow to cool. 

2. Soak Cake: Place cubes of pound cake in large bowl and pour rum over. Toss to coat.

3. Make mousse: Bring 1 cup heavy cream to a boil. Pour over chopped chocolate. Allow to sit for one minute. Whisk until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is fully emulsified. Allow to cool for five minutes or until tepid. Whip the remaining heavy cream to soft peaks and keep chilled until chocolate mixture has cooled down. Fold 1/3 of whipped cream into white chocolate mixture to lighten it. Gently fold in remaining whipped cream being careful not to over- fold. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm enough to pipe or spoon into glasses.

4. Assemble parfaits: Arrange one layer of cake cubes on bottom of either champagne or wine glasses. Cover with a layer of cubed mango. Spoon or pipe a layer of mousse on top. Repeat to fill glasses with mousse layer on top. Garnish with slice of star fruit.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
