White Chocolate Chunk Mousse Tartlets are a smooth and creamy dessert that’s made with purchased tart shells.
When you spoon the white chocolate chunk mousse into a crisp cookie tart shell and top them with fresh fruit, it’s a dreamy dessert combination.
You can make and chill the White Chocolate Chunk Mousse hours before filling the tartlet shells to make prep less stressful. You’ll garnish and then chill them for an hour before you want to serve them.
You don’t want to fill the White Chocolate Chunk Mousse tartlet shells too far in advance, as they can become soggy. You want to keep your cookie shells nice and crisp for serving time.

8 oz. good quality white chocolate, finely chopped
2 egg yolks
2 Tbsp. white sugar
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream +
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 oz. good quality white chocolate, roughly chopped
20 mini tartlet shells
Fresh blueberries, raspberries & strawberries
- Place the 8 ounces of chocolate in a medium glass bowl.
- In a second bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until smooth and pale yellow.
- Place a small saucepan over low heat and add 1/4 cup cream. Bring to a simmer.
- Remove from heat and slowly add cream to the yolk mixture while constantly whisking to keep from curdling the yolks.
- Pour the entire mixture back into the saucepan over low heat and cook until it will coat the back of a wooden spoon.
- Pour the hot mixture through a fine mesh sieve that's placed over the glass bowl of chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
- In a large CHILLED non-aluminum bowl, whip the 1 cup cream to just barely stiff peaks. Gently fold one-half of the whipped cream into the melted chocolate to lighten the yolk mixture. Leave some streaks still showing. Fold in remaining whipped cream and 2 ounces chopped chocolate until completely combined. (over-mixing will deflate the whipped cream)
- Place tart shells on a parchment paper lined, rimmed baking sheet. Spoon mousse into tart shells. Decorate tops with fresh berries and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
Mousse can be made up to 8 hours before filling tarts. Tart shells can soften if filled more than 1 hour before serving.
