3/4 cup sugar
6 large egg yolks
3 ounces white chocolate, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups heavy cream
4 cups assorted fresh raspberries, blackberries, blueberries
Combine sugar, 1/4 cup water and the egg yolks in a medium-size metal bowl. Set bowl over saucepan of simmering water (be sure bottom of bowl is not touching water).
Beat yolk mixture with hand mixer set on medium-high about 5 minutes or until mixture registers 140 degree F on an instant-read thermometer. Continue cooking for 3 minutes, beating constantly.
Remove bowl from over water. Add warm, melted white chocolate and vanilla. Beat about 5 minutes, until cool.
Beat heavy cream in a large bowl to stiff peaks. Gently mix 1/4 of the whipped cream into cooled white chocolate mixture.
Fold white chocolate mixture into remaining whipped cream until no streaks remain. Cover and cool in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
