What You'll Need

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 eggs

  • 16 stemmed red maraschino cherries, well drained

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine crushed vanilla wafers and butter; mix well. Press into a 10-inch springform pan, covering bottom and sides to form a crust; chill.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine egg yolks and whole eggs; beat well and set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, melt white chocolate chips 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add egg mixture and quickly whisk until well blended. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add confectioners' sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into slightly cooled white chocolate mixture until well blended. Stir in chopped red and green cherries and spoon into prepared crust. Place stemmed cherries around edge of cake.
  5. Cover and freeze overnight, or until firm.


  • We know what you're thinking about the eggs. Don't worry, combining them with the hot, melted white chocolate will make the eggs safe to eat.

I made this over new years and it was Good. Added a can of cheery pie fulling to the top rather sweet but good!! Going to make again and us blue berries. As for the raw eggs Mom would make frosting for cookies from egg whites and put pepper on the yolks with a little water and down the hatch they would go. She's 87. My Uncle eats raw hamburger and he's 92 and going strong. I've done the same myself what's with this new generation that you have to so safe.

I got this information off the US government food safety website: If your recipe calls for uncooked eggs, make it safe by doing one of the following: Heating the eggs in one of the recipes other liquid ingredients over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 160 degrees F. Then, combine it with the other ingredients and complete the recipe. Or use pasteurized eggs or egg products. Note: Egg products, such as liquid or frozen egg substitute, are pasteurized, so its safe to use them in recipes that will be not be cooked. However, its best to use egg products in a recipe that will be cooked, especially if you are serving pregnant women, babies, young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.

I made the white chocolate mousse cake tonite. I mixed chocolate in eggs rite off heat. Just hoping it was hot enough gonna try it anyway. Thanks Debbie

This sounds wonderful but I would like to know if candied cherries can be used?

Yes, you sure can! Maybe just toss them with a little confectioners' sugar or flour so they don't stick. Enjoy!

I am going to make this, it sounds so yummy.

Don't you think the melted chocolate would cook the eggs enough?

Really ? R those eggs really cooked. Looks wonderful, think i will pass this one up.

If you're that worried bubasgirl you can use pasteurized eggs. BTW, I've eaten raw cake batter and cookie dough, and consumed egg nog made with raw eggs all my life and never had a problem, and I'm 51.
