PEEPS. They may not be the healthiest of treats for Halloween, but I love that PEEPS are made for different holidays. So many shapes. I was going to make a few dioramas, but when perusing the PEEPS site, I came across this easy recipe and darling PEEPS Chocolate Mousse Dessert Jars. I love dessert in a jar! You can top these Chocolate Mousse Dessert Jars with the PEEPS of your choice, but aren't these Halloween chicks perfect?
PEEPS CHOCOLATE MOUSSE IN A JAR!
from PEEPS recipes
One package of PEEPS Chocolate Flavored Mousse Cats
PEEPS of your choice for garnish
Two 8 oz containers of whipped topping
One cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
One tablespoon sweet butter
1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs (I like Nabsico Famous Chocolate Wafers)
Four ramekins, cups or jars for serving
In microwave safe bowl (or in a pan over simmering water) combine chocolate chips, butter and two PEEPS Chocolate Flavored Mousse Cats.
Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds, remove to stir. Continue to microwave in 15 second increments until chocolate ship and PEEPS have melted. Stir to combine. The mixture will be very thick. Allow mixture to cool for five minutes.
In large bowl, combine 8oz container of whipped topping and melted chocolate mix.
Mix with electric mixer on low until well combined. Set aside.
In ramekins, cups or jars, sprinkle 1/4 cup of cookie crumbs on bottom of container.
Gently spoon 1/4 of chocolate mousse mixture into each container, on top of cookie crumbs.
Top with additional whipped topping.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Just before serving top each mousse cup with a Marshmallow PEEP of your choice.
