Springtime Recipe: Lindt Stracciatella Mousse

We’re seeing the signs that Spring is arriving! The days are getting longer and mercury on the thermometer is rising. Let’s celebrate this season of awakening by treating our taste buds to something delicious. Of course, it has to be made with premium chocolate! How about a chocolate chip inspired mousse? Made with both creamy white chocolate and deep dark chocolate, Stracciatella Mousse was created as a tribute to the gelato of the same name sold in shops in Italy. Richly satisfying, it’s the perfect dessert to serve to family and friends to remind them that warmer weather is just around the corner.
