Mini Mousse Tarts.

I had every intention of writing about something else today, but when I got up this morning, I really didn’t want to. And since it’s my blog, I can write about whatever I want, when I want, right?!

So instead, I’m going to share a recipe with you, because I’ve been sitting on it for a few weeks now!

Mini Chocolate Mousse Tarts
A simple dessert, that will look so fancy, no one will think they are homemade!


  • 2 pkgs. Jello Mousse
  • Milk (measurement on box)
  • 1 pkg Trader Joes brand chocolate creme cookies
  • 1 stick butter, melted

Finely process or crush cookies into crumbs. Pulse in melted butter until crust can be held together. Preheat oven to 350. Push a tablespoon or so of crust into bottom of muffin pan and up the sides a little. Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on if you want them softer or more crunchier. Mix together mousse and milk. Let set up while the tart shells are baking/cooling. Add a small scoop to each tart shell, decorate as desired, and enjoy!IMG_2671-001 IMG_2672-001IMG_2679-001 mousse



This little mousse tarts were amazing. I brought them to my church group, and no one could believe that I made them. They loved the cookie crust, and were blown away when I told them how simple they were to make! Of course the possibilities with this little dessert are endless.

My other mini tart ideas:

  • fill with pudding
  • fill with fruit only
  • change the cookie to anything from nutterbutters to lemon cookies.
  • fill with a cream cheese filling for an almost cheesecake

Seriously though, the sky is the limit with this little gems!


What would you fill your cookie tart shell with?
What customizable dessert do you love to make, but make a little different each time?

    Love the rebelliousness… You probably know how I feel about that too 😉 And those little mousse cups look good. I’d be extremely tempted to fill then with a cherry preserve and whip cream to make little Black Forest Tarts. Gah! It’s too early in the morning to be thinking about decadent desserts! Ahh who am I kidding… it’s never too early 😛
