White Chocolate Mousse
from Your Homebased Mom, found originally on Evil Shenanigans

1 cup milk (whole milk would be the best)
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp butter
3 oz. white chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 tsp gelatin
1 tbsp cold water
1 cup whipping cream
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine milk, cornstarch, sugar and egg yolk into a medium sauce pan.  Whisk together well.  Over medium heat, cook until it thickens and comes to a simmer.  Whisk constantly.  It will take about 10 minutes.

Then remove from heat and add in vanilla, butter and white chocolate.  Mix until everything is melted (make sure white chocolate melts completely.  Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap and chill for four hours or overnight.

In a small cup or bowl combine the gelatin with the water.  Let it stand for about 10 minutes.  Then pop into the microwave for about 10 seconds to melt the gelatin.  Cool to room temperature.

Then combine cream, powdered sugar and vanilla.  Whip until thick.  Add in gelatin and mix until medium peaks are formed.  Fold the whipped cream into the white chocolate mixture in 3 parts.  Cover and chill for at least an hour or overnight.
