Quick Orange Mousse

The vivid colour and tangy taste of oranges dominates this quick mousse. But, what makes this recipe a real topper is the way the vibrant orange sauce contrasts and complements the pleasant white chocolate and soothing whipped cream. Orange squash is better suited for this recipe than fresh orange juice, as it totally voids the risk of bitterness. As a variant, the orange sauce can also be used over vanilla ice-cream.
