  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of pepper
  • 1/4 cup of softened butter

  • 2 tbsp of honey mustard
  • 1 tsp of fresh sage, chopped

Preparation

  1. Get the salt and pepper and sprinkle them evenly on the pork chops. Once this is done, place the chop on a wire rack in a broiler pan lined up with aluminum foil.
  2. Take the butter, parsley, honey mustard and fresh sage, and mix them all together in a bowl until all ingredients are well blended. After that, take 1 rounded tablespoon of your butter mixture and top this on a pork chop. Do this with the rest of the pork chops.
  3. For the next 10 minutes, broil the pork chops 5 inches from heat. You can also use a meat thermometer and insert this into the thickest portion of the chops, and you’ll know everything is done when your thermometer reads 155° :)
  4. Serve and Enjoy!

Ingredients

White Chocolate Mousse:

  • 8 oz. of white chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp of butter, unsalted
  • 1 & 1/4 cups  of milk
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 tbsp of sugar
  • 2 tbsp of cornstarch
  • 2 tsp of gelatin powder, mixed in 3 tbsp of cold water
  • 1 cup of whip cream

Chocolate Cups:

  • 8-10 mini balloons
  • 4 oz chopped chocolate
  • 1 recipe White Chocolate Mousse, chilled
  • raspberries or nuts for garnish

Procedure:

White Chocolate Mousse:

1. Put the white chocolate and butter in a bowl, with a strainer on top of it.

2. Heat the milk in a pot to simmer.

3. In another bowl, mix the sugar, starch and egg yolks  together. Mix in the hot milk into the egg mixture slowly, whisk as you add. Pour them all back into the pot and continue whisking under low heat until mixture becomes thick and glossy.

4. After 5 minutes, add the gelatin through the strainer, and keep stirring until all the chocolate and butter have melted. Cool to room temperature.

5. Whip up the cream until it soft and fluffy , then fold this into your chocolate mixture. Chill it for around 80 minutes, enough to set, but still retaining its softness.

Chocolate Cups:

1. Inflate the mini balloons with air and tie them up. Gently wipe with damp cloth then dry. Prepare a baking tray lined up with parchment.

2. Place a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water. Melt the chocolate in the bowl. Once chocolate is melted, remove the bowl from heat.

3. Dip the balloons halfway into the chocolate on a angle, lifting and rotating as you dip again and again, which creates a tulip shape.

4. Gently shake off excess chocolate and place balloons onto the prepared tray. Chill them until the chocolate sets.

5. With a tiny pin, carefully pop the balloons and let air escape slowly. Remove balloons from cup and dispose.

6. Pipe and twirl the white chocolate mousse into the cups. Garnish the top with raspberries, crushed nuts, or chocolate shavings. Chill well, and you’re done!
