Easy White Chocolate Pot Recipe

A very quick make ahead dessert that adds a little sweet treat to the end of a dinner party, romantic dinner for two (halve the mixture) or family gathering.  I made these for friends and asked them to taste and comment on the dessert and give it a name. The feedback was ‘the texture is a little bit like panacotta’, ‘you can really taste the white chocolate’, ‘it tastes like white chocolate mousse’, ‘call it a White Chocolate Pot or White Chocolate Marshmallow Mousse’. When you make them let me know what your thoughts are.

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4-6
  • 150 grams mini marshmallows (white)
  • 50 grams butter, chopped
  • 250 grams good quality cooking white chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • 60mls water
  • 300mls double cream, whipped
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a pot add the marshmallows, butter, chocolate and water.
  2. Gently heat the mixture, stirring constantly to melt and amalgamate everything together.
  3. White chocolate burns quickly, so keep stirring to the corner of the pot.
  4. Remove mixture from the hob.
  5. Stir the chocolate mixture a little to cool the mixture down and add the vanilla extract or paste.
  6. Fold in the whipped cream into the white chocolate mixture.
  7. Now you have choices you can make a bowl full, fill teacups or little espresso cups full. I prefer a little espresso cup. The mixture is very sweet so small individual cups work really well.
  8. Chill for a few hours, overnight or up to three days in advance.
If you use a mixture of white and pink marshmallows the end result will be a soft pink chocolate pot.
A wonderful Valentines dessert, you could set the mixture in a heart shaped mould.
