Silky Mint Chocolate Mousse Cups

December 13, 2019

 

Nothing screams 'holidays' quite like mint chocolate. This classic combo is all over Pintrest & Instagram during the holiday season & I'm here for it! 

 

This dessert is silky smooth, rich & perfectly sweet. It's light & airy with the perfect amount of mint chocolate flavour. I like to think these are a lighter version of a no bake cheesecake....are you drooling yet?! Did I mention these come together in UNDER 30 MINUTES?! I know...sounds too goo too be true! 

 

These mousse cups are so perfect for holiday get togethers & present so beautifully. Top with extra whipped cream or chocolate shavings for an added treat. 

 

 

Mint Chocolate Mousse Cups (Serves: 6)

 

Ingredients

- 1/2 cup crushed Oreo crumbs
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1  brick cream cheese, softened at room temperature
- 4 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted

- 1 1/2 tsp mint extract

Directions

* Before you begin, place beaters and mixing bowl in the freezer for at least 15 minutes 

1. Start by making the crust. Combine cookie crumbs, butter and sugar together in a small mixing bowl. Divide into 6 equal portions and gently press crust into 6 small mason jars.

2. Take out beaters & bowl from the freezer. Begin by heavy cream to mixing bowl and beating until soft peaks form (about 5-6 minutes). Transfer to small mixing bowl and set aside.

3. Using the same beaters & bowl from before, add in softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Begin mixing on medium until smooth. Drizzle in melted chocolate & mint extract then add in freshly whipped cream. Continue until smooth & fluffy. 

5. Transfer mousse mixture to large piping bag (or large resealable bag & then snip off the end). Pipe mousse into each mason jar until 3/4 of the way full.

6. Let chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set. Top with additional whipped cream & chocolate shavings before serving if you wish. Enjoy!
