Graeter's Black Raspberry-White Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Black Raspberry-White Chocolate Mousse in Painted Wine Glasses

CHOCOLATE GANACHE

  • • 2 TBS heavy cream
  • • ¼ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips


1. Heat 2 TB. heavy cream in small glass ramekin in microwave for 35-40 seconds at 50% power.
2. Add a scant ¼ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Let the chips melt for a couple minutes then stir with spoon until smooth. If it looks a little separated, add a few drops of water. Keep at room temperature until needed. Can be reheated in microwave at 50% power for a few seconds.

BLACK RASPBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

  • • 8 ounces Graeter’s Black Raspberry Dessert Sauce
  • • 8 ounces White Chocolate, finely chopped
  • • 2 Cups Heavy Cream or Whipping Cream


1. In a small saucepan, bring Black Raspberry Sauce to a near boil. Remove from heat and add white chocolate, let it set for 1-2 minutes and the whisk until smooth. Allow mixture to cool to about room temperature by placing in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes.
2. Whip 2 cups of heavy cream to soft peaks.
3. Take a third of the whipped cream and gently beat into the cooled white chocolate mixture.
4. Then pour the white chocolate mixture into the remaining whipped cream. Gently fold the whipped cream into the white chocolate mixture. Do not over mix or the mousse will turn grainy. Transfer the mousse into a large zip lock bag until ready to use. The mousse will keep for up to four days in the refrigerator.

(Optional method for whipping cream: Whip the cream until lightly whipped; i.e., before any peaks form. When you see streaks left by the whisk, the cream is ready. Pour white chocolate mixture into lightly whipped cream and whisk together until the mixture looks like soft peak whipped cream. Do not over whip the cream or your mousse will be grainy.)

5. Using a spoon, zip-loc bag or cornet bag, drizzle warm chocolate ganache on inside of the wine glasses. Refrigerate glasses so the ganache will firm up.
6. Place white chocolate mousse inside a pastry bag or zip lock bag and pipe mousse into glasses. Refrigerate until serving.

Two Cincinnati Family Companies Offer an Indulgent Collaboration

Graeter’s Ice Cream and Braxton Brewing Co. Release Limited Edition Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout

CINCINNATI, OH (January 24, 2017) – Graeter’s Ice Cream, family owned craft ice cream manufacturer since 1870, and Braxton Brewing Co., a local brewing company, have partnered to release a unique ice cream-inspired stout. This Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout is a first for both brands, bringing Graeter’s and Braxton Brewing Co. fans together with one unique adult beverage. On February 3rd, the collaborative beverage will be introduced at a Tapping Party at Braxton Brewing Co. and is set to hit Kroger and will be available at participating Kroger stores and many favorite independent area retailers, as well in the greater Cincinnati, Dayton, Lexington and Louisville areas beginning February 6th.

Graeter's Black Raspberry Beer

The one-of-a-kind Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout is a creatively crafted beverage inspired by one of Graeter’s oldest traditional flavors. Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is an ice cream featuring black raspberries from Oregon’s Willamette Valley and gourmet bittersweet chocolate chips. With Graeter’s exclusive black raspberry puree, Braxton Brewing Co. crafted this one-of-a-kind milk stout, a dark brew with notes of roasted barley and a creamy texture. This sweet treat will only be available for purchase for a limited time.

“We’re excited to partner with another local family company to create something truly unique,” shares Richard Graeter, CEO of Graeter’s Ice Cream. “As a Cincinnati-grown company ourselves, we’re proud to support not only local companies, but also craft brands that are just as passionate about preserving their authenticity as we are.”

"Collaborating with the Graeter's team on this project has been a dream come true," said Jake Rouse, Co-Founder and CEO. "Over the past six months, our teams have taken this project from imagination to one of the best tasting stouts we've ever created. We hope this is the first of many collaborations between the Braxton and Graeter's Family and can't wait for consumers to get their hands on this beer."

Regina Graeter’s original recipes and old-world French Pot process have stood the test of time – even as mass-produced ice cream floods the market. This innovative collaboration between Graeter’s Ice Cream and Braxton Brewing Co. is an ode to her time-tested recipes, taken to an even higher level by the addition of Braxton Brewing Co.’s passion for crafting the perfect beer.
