I love to cook, and many of my family loves cooking too, but we all have our own little Twists on recipes and that's what I'm here to share with you, My Twists on some great recipes that make them even more tasty.
Some are new some are old favorites but I put time and love into everything I make and write about.
(Makes about 6 servings in 6 ounce glasses, or 4 servings in 10 ounce glasses)
16 fl oz whipping cream, cold 2 tablespoons sugar 2 (16 ounce) tubs all natural Belgian chocolate pudding*, divided use 24 all natural chocolate-vanilla sandwich cookies*, crushed into chunky consistency 1 (1 ounce) square semi-sweet chocolate, to shave for garnish
-In the bowl of a mixer (or using a hand-held), add the cold cream and begin whipping; once thickened slightly, sprinkle in the sugar and finish whipping just until stiff peaks form; set aside for a moment.
-In medium-large bowl, add 2 cups of the chocolate pudding (reserving the remaining pudding) and begin adding the whipped cream to it in several increments, gently folding in to keep a fluffy and light consistency, as this is the “chocolate mousse” part of the dessert; once all whipped cream is incorporated, set aside and prepare glasses.
To Assemble (for 6 servings in 6 ounce glasses):
-Begin by adding equal amounts of the crushed cookies to the bottom of each glass (about 3 tablespoons), next a layer of chocolate pudding (about 3 tablespoons), and next a layer of the “chocolate mousse” (about 3 tablespoons); repeat this process again for each glass, with another layering of crushed cookies, then the pudding, then the “chocolate mousse”, finally finishing with a final sprinkling of crushed cookies and a decorative dollop of “chocolate mousse”; garnish by shaving a little of the semi-sweet chocolate square with a vegetable peeler over the tops of each glass; refrigerate until ready to serve, or serve immediately.
To Assemble (for 4 servings in 10 ounce glasses):
-Follow assembly instructions above only increase the quantity of each layer to about 5 tablespoons in order to fill each glass.
