Peppermint Mousse Cups Recipe





Here is a delightful recipe that I found on the Pillsbury website with a few minor changes to make things easier:

What You Will Need:

–    1 ½ cups of semisweet chocolate chips

–   ½ cup of white vanilla baking chips

–   1 cup of whipping cream

–   ½ tsp of peppermint extract

–   2 drops of red food colouring

–   2 Tbsp of crushed candy canes


What You Will Need to do:

1.   Line 24 mini muffin cups with paper cups.

2.   In 1-quart saucepan, melt semisweet chocolate chips over low heat, stirring frequently.  Spoon about 2 tsp of the chocolate into each paper cup.  With back of small measuring spoon, spread chocolate up sides to within 1/8 inch of the top.  Chocolate should be warm enough to spread.  Refrigerate about 20 minutes or until completely set.

3.   In small microwavable bowl, microwave vanilla baking chips uncovered for about a minute.  Stir in 3 tbsp of the whipping cream, microwave for about 30 seconds or until chips are melted.  Stir in peppermint extract and food color.  Let cool for a few minutes.  Carefully remove paper cups from chocolate cups.

4.   In another bowl, beat remaining whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.  Fold melted vanilla chip mixture into whipped cream.  Spoon or pipe whipped cream mixture into chocolate cups.  Refrigerate until serving.

5.   Just before serving, sprinkle with candy.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
