I don't know why people sleep on white chocolate, but the creamy, thick dessert has a tendency to go unnoticed -- perhaps because some of us tend to associate it with cloying sweetness.
While you can certainly get that typical sugary sweet flavor if you like, there are also a ton of exciting recipes that use the underrated, understated ingredient in ways that please your palate, whether you like it super sweet or enjoy the cocoa butter-rich flavor to accentuate deeper, complex flavors like tart fruit or bitter, strong coffee. Give it a try!
This bright and sweet dessert is just fabulous with Meyer lemons, although they can be tough to find. If you don't have them on hand, no problem! You can approximate the flavor with half regular lemon juice and half fresh-squeezed orange juice.
Just so you know, you can make this incredibly tasty yet simple mousse in the microwave if you want. I think that's all that needs to be said here … (*runs to kitchen*).
A soft, fluffy brioche-based dough jammed full of rich white chocolate, creamy mascarpone, bold dark chocolate and slightly bitter coffee liqueur makes for an incredibly decadent way to wake up in the morning or indulge after dinner. So good!
These cookies take a little while to make, only because you have a fair bit of downtime waiting for them to chill, bake and cool off, but beside that they're really not that much more work than any other cookie recipe. Plus, they taste AMAZING, and you can get creative with the toppings, like rolling the freshly dipped halves in some chopped nuts or sprinkles, for instance. You can also rainbow-marble your dipping chocolate like so. (If you go this route, be careful not to over-mix, and consider doing several batches of melted chocolate to keep the dipped cookies from muddying the color.)
This tart bark is a little sweet but not terrible so, since it only uses a tablespoon of honey for added sweetener. Of course, if you'd like you can always increase that or even add a bit of regular sugar for that expected white chocolate sweetness. Either way, this rich, fudgy bark is absolutely delightful with the mix of thick, smooth white chocolate and tangy pomegranate seeds that pop in your mouth with every bite.
