Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Mini Parfaits
Need a quick dessert with a special elegance to it? These Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Mini Parfaits were soooooo easy!
Everything here is semi-homemade. I used a chocolate mousse mix which required 3/4 cup of skim milk. I didn't have any skim milk but had 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream and regular milk. So much for watching the calories, uh? Mixed it together until it had a thick consistency and placed it in a pastry bag.
Next I had a package of Dream Whip and just enough milk to make up my whipped cream. Placed the whipped cream in a pastry bag.
Took the mints and smashed them in a bag and placed them in a bowl.
I started with the chocolate mousse....... then a layer of whipped cream....... sprinkled the whipped cream with the crushed peppermint candies. Repeated the layers until my vessel (which I used tall shot glasses) was filled to the brim!
I just love using these glasses! So many different ways of making an elegant dessert and a grab and go party.
These mini gems was such a special treat to the guests.........
....... and a very pretty presentation, don't you think?
I saved this one just for you!
They also went well with the mini shots!
