Bittersweet Chocolate Cones Filled With White Chocolate Mousse, Floating On Pomegranate Sauce

Ingredients

Directions and ingredients for my dessert:
9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, broken into squares
1 (16 ounce) bottle of Pom Wonderful Pomegranate Juice
2 cups tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in a ΒΌ of water
1 1/4 cups unsalted butter
12 ounces white chocolate chips
3/4 cup sugar
16 ounces heavy cream

Preparation

1
Cut 4-inch double thickness circles from baking parchment and shape each into a cone. Secure with masking tape.
2
Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl over hot water, cool slightly, then spoon a little into each cone, swirling and brushing it to coat the paper in an even layer.
3
Stand each cone point downward in a cup or glass, to hold it straight. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to set. Repeat the process a second time. Keep cool until ready for assembly.
4
Pour juice into saucepan and heat on low. Slowly whisk in the dissolved cornstarch. Continue whisking until the juice becomes slightly thick. Let cool.
5
Pour water into a heavy sauce pan; sprinkle with gelatine. Let stand 2 minutes, until gelatine is softened. Add butter, heat, stirring, until mixture is boiling, butter melts and gelatine is dissolved.
6
Meanwhile, in food processor, chop chocolate chips with sugar. With processor running, pour boiling butter mixture into chocolate mixture; process until chocolate is melted. Add eggs once at a time and continue processing.
7
Return mousse back to sauce pan and cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Stir constantly. Be careful not to let scorch.
8
Pour mixture into a bowl and place in refrigerator for an hour to cool.
9
Pour heavy cream into a mixer bowl and whip into soft peaks. Add a large spoonful of cooled white chocolate mixture while still whipping. Continue adding spoonfuls of white chocolate mixture until all gone.
