Little Bites O'Yum! - Easy Chocolate Mousse

I whipped these up to bring to a neighbor's BBQ recently and thought I would share the recipe with you!

2 boxes of Fillo mini shells (or you could sub yummy baked wanton wrappers)

3/4 cup softened cream cheese

1/2 cup marshmallow creme

1 large box of instant chocolate pudding

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup skim milk

raspberries for garnish

With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and marshmallow in a large bowl until smooth (if you stop here you will have a super yummy fruit dip!)

Add pudding and whipping cream to mixture and beat on medium speed until blended.

Add milk and continue beating until stiff peaks form
(be careful not to over mix. It can be remedied with a splash of milk if you do.)

Pipe mousse into Fillo cups with an icing bag and frosting tip of your choice, or you can load a plastic baggy and snip the corner.

Garnish with raspberries and chill until served.


I filled 24 cups and had a bit of mousse left over. I just piped the remainder into champagne flutes, alternating with a layer of raspberries, and had enough for a dessert for two. Enjoy!
