Mini Chocolate Mousse Cups

I had a vision of mini chocolate mousse desserts in little cups with tiny silver spoons for a dessert at my Pampered Chef Party...  I had the mini cups (from the dollar tree!  Thanks Haleigh for the tip!  (Check out her fabulous blog:  Partleigh Put-Together ) and I had the mini spoons but I had no idea what to do about the mousse!  Being 7 months pregnant, I cannot consume any raw egg (and really you never should) but most real mousse recipes call for egg whites.  I decided to use chocolate pudding mix to make my egg-less mousse and it came out super yummy!   This is definitely a fun dessert for a party and it made A TON!


Mini Chocolate Mousse Cups
makes approx 48 mini cups

Ingredients:

  • (1) 14oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • (1) cup cold water
  • (1) 3.9oz package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • (1) cup whipping cream, whipped
  • 1/2 Package Oreos, Crushed
  • Redi-Whip
Directions:
  • In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and water.  Add pudding mix; beat well.  Chill 5 minutes.  While the pudding mixture was chilling I whipped the whipping cream until soft peaks formed.  Fold whipped cream into pudding mixture.  Spoon chocolate mousse mixture into mini cups.  Crush 1/2 package of oreos and sprinkle crushed oreo on top of the chocolate mousse.  You can put these in the fridge tightly covered the day before your party.  When you are ready to serve, remove from fridge and top each mousse with RediWhip and put a tiny silver spoon it it!  Serve on a large platter.  Enjoy!
