Recipe | "Valentine Special-White Chocolate Mousse" by Sue Ready

Cook’s notes: "Recipe serves 6-8 depending on the size of the glass. There are several options for serving this dessert: small wine/parfait glasses or dark chocolate edible party cups available at some stores in the baking aisle. Amaretto is the piece de resistance elevating this dessert to a whole new level." - Sue Ready
