  1. Mousse: In a saucepan, bring the cream up to a simmer, add the white chocolate and whisk completely melted. Pour the mixture into an electric mixing bowl.
  2. Refrigerate the mixture until cold, about 1 hour.
  3. Raspberry Coulis: Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pot and reduce the mixture by half, over high heat. Puree the mixture with a hand-held mixer.
  4. Refrigerate the coulis until cool, about 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the chilled mousse mixture from the refrigerator. Using an electric mixer, whip the mixture until fully whipped and peaks form.
  6. To assemble, make a puddle of the coulis in the center of the plate. Fill a chocolate nest with the mousse. Pipe the whipped cream on the side of the nest to anchor the nest to the plate.
  7. Garnish with the mint, powdered sugar and chocolate shavings.
