Sometimes you want a luxurious dessert but you don’t want too much of it. I always loved chocolate mousse as a kid because I thought it was so fancy, and I still love it today as a light and fluffy (yet still fancy) dessert. Today, we made these mini mousses—in strawberry, caramel, matcha, and salted caramel flavors. Here’s how…

You’ll need…

For the mousse base:

-1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

-1-2 tbs sugar (you can adjust the sweetness as you prefer)

Then add these for your specific flavors…

Caramel Mousse: add 1 cup caramel sauce

Strawberry Mousse: 1 cup strawberry puree

Here’s how…

1. In a large bowl, beat heavy cream and sugar until soft peaks form.

2. Using a spatula, gently fold in the puree flavoring.

3. Spoon into individual serving bowls and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

The mousse will keep for three days refrigerated.
