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!

Ingredients:

  • 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 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 holy.wow 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 😛
