Baking Recipe: White Chocolate and Pomegranate Mousse Tart

I have been really excited and have been holding back a while now. Ah! finally I get to share this recipe with all of you. When Foodbuzz and Frigidaire sent out an e-mail asking for us to share our favourite Spring recipes, I jumped right on it and was praying really hard to be selected. After all, I have always wanted to take part in some fun cooking or baking campaign and this is just perfect.

This is my chance to work with another of my favourite fruit: Pomegranate. I just love those rich tangy ruby gems. Throw a couple in the mouth and it feels like candy pops, popping away. Juicy, sweet and above all delish!!
My main focus for this recipe is to allow the Pomegranate to shine. It sure sounds like Spring and perfect to move into a Summer treat as well. Another main ingredient here is the luscious smooth white chocolate. In my opinion these two will work out as a perfect couple. Slightly sweet and sour....yummm!!

The tart is filled with fluffy white chocolate mousse with pomegranate curd swirls. I have also decided to make individual white chocolate and pomegranate mousse tart to tantalize my family's the taste buds; where the bright flavours of pomegranate awakens their senses in every bite.

I hope you will enjoy them as much I did making them for you. Caution: These tarts might have you asked for more; so make sure to stash some away. To finish off, the tart is then garnished with some fresh pomegranate for the extra bite and kick and some topped with whipped cream. Bright flavours and light, perfect for any time of day.

  1. I do love pomegranate, so these little tars do get a definite thumbs up from me. The pomegranate is a mess to deal with but the taste makes all of that tolerable. The preparation with the curd swirled no doubt imparts a lot of flavor-well done!

  14. Pomegranates always had something sensual to me. I think it's the ruby colour, the deep red mess they make and the juicy crunch they have.
    I am in love with how these things of beauty here look! I think there is something glamourous in its simplicity.
