White Chocolate Soup with Berry Skewers

White Chocolate Soup with Berry Skewers ~ Pearls + Girls

Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays!  I love the tradition of taking my family to watch the fireworks, singing ‘God Bless the USA’ and waving our American flags back and forth with pride.  What could be better than celebrating our nation’s birthday with a simple but elegant RED, WHITE and BLUE dessert?

This White Chocolate Soup with Berry Skewers is so easy to make and the presentation is so beautiful.  I love the simplicity of these ingredients:  milk, cream, vanilla, white chocolate and a trio of fresh berries.  The most time consuming part of this recipe?  Waiting for the soup to chill!  Enjoy! 🙂

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups 2% milk

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan.
  2. Over medium high heat, slowly add the milk and cream, whisking continuously.

  4. Remove pan from the heat. Add the vanilla and white chocolate chips.
  5. Stir mixture until smooth.
  6. Transfer soup to a large bowl.
  7. Cover the surface with plastic wrap so the soup does not form a skin.
