Candy Cane Chocolate Mousse

Hello,

Last night I made a delectable treat that is creamy, smooth and minty fresh!  One thing I really love about this time of year is the wonderful holiday treats you can make.  Honestly, I don’t know why we just make them in November and December.  We should be able to celebrate with yummy treats all year!  Don’t you agree?  Then again my waistline and butt may not agree.   lol

Tonight’s dessert is so easy to whip together in no time and it looks like you spent more time on it then you really did.  he he  I love that!

I tend to over due on the peppermint flavors around Christmas time and I stock up on candy canes, so they take me into January!  Yummy, Yummy!  Tonight’s Mousse is a chocolate candy cane mousse full of pepperminty flavor, but not to strong of flavor, you still want to taste the chocolate and whip cream.

This recipe consists of 1 Tub of Cool Whip (Fat Free), 1 Pkg. of Sugar Free Instant Chocolate Pudding, 1/4tsp of Peppermint Extract, 1 Cup of Non-fat Milk and Candy Canes!

  1. When it comes to mousse, little individual servings do make for a great presentation! Yours are stunning. Also, there is nothing more festive than peppermint and chocolate for the holidays-I know it is high on my list of flavor combos-yum!

  2. mint, pumpkin, chocolate!

  3. Ohhh, adding pumpkin instead of milk would probably work, better for you, maybe less calories and creamier! I love it! Going to try it again with pumpkin!
