Easy White Chocolate Cookie Mousse
  • 12 ounce Chopped White Chocolate
  • 1 and a half cups heavy cream, divided
  • 12-15 chocolate cream-filled cookies
Put cookies into a zip-top bag and crush. Set aside in a small saucepan, heat two and a half cups of heavy cream until very warm but not boiling. Remove from heat and add white chocolate. Let stand 2-3 minutes and then stir.

Allow to cool to room temperature.

With an electric mixer, whip the remaining cream in a chilled bowl until soft peaks from.  Stir into cooled white chocolate mixture and add crushed cookie bits.

Chill until ready to use.

Chocolate Bowls
  • 10-12 small water balloons 
  • 1 pound of good quality dark chocolate chips
  • Oil
  • Parchment paper

Blow up 10-12 small water balloons to about 3 inches. Gently wipe the outsides of balloons and coat lightly with oil.

Put 1 pound of good quality dark chocolate chips into a glass or metal bowl. Carefully melt, using a double boiler or in 15-second increments until chocolate is melted but only warm. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate. Stir often until all pieces are melted.

Gently dip bottom half of balloons into melted chocolate. Stand them up on parchment paper and allow to cool. Once chocolate is set, pop balloons and remove from chocolate shells.

Fill shells with mousse, pudding, or ice cream as desired.
