If there is ever a reason to find reason to make pretty pink treats, it’s Valentine’s Day! I’m already trying to think up fun dinner ideas for my boys for Valentine’s Day and I thought a fun mousse dessert treat would be perfect.
Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse:
1 package of cream cheese (8 oz size)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip
1 package of strawberry jello mix
strawberry sundae topping (optional)
Start by mixing cream cheese in a bowl until it’s smooth. Add the powdered sugar, cream, and vanilla, and beat until creamy. Add Cool Whip to your mixture and beat until mixed together.
Divide the cheesecake mix into two bowls and set one aside. Add small amount of strawberry jello mix to one of the bowls and mix until a light pink color (add more jello powder to taste if needed).
Get a small bowl or cup and either pipe or spoon the mousse into the bowl. If you so choose, you can layer the vanilla and strawberry mousse with strawberry ice cream topping or you can leave it without (one pictured with, one pictured without).
I garnished my mousse cups with little sugar covered gummy hearts. You could also do chocolate hearts, added chocolate topping, or whatever your heart desires. Possibilities are endless!
