I have been a fan of chocolate mousse for as long as I can remember. I especially like white chocolate mousse with berries, so I made this the other night as a surprise for my husband. It’s relish!

You’ll need:
1/2 cup whole milk
4 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
8 ounces good-quality white chocolate (such as Lindt or Baker’s), chopped
1 cup chilled whipping cream
2 cups fresh blackberries
Rolled wafer cookies
