Pumpkin Spice Mousse ( a repost)
What a yummy treat! Smooth and delicious with the perfect blend of pumpkin and cream. This is a simple to prepare dessert and helps with those "pumpkin-spiced everything" cravings.
This was also supposed to have pecans on top, but apparently my grown sons must have found the HIDDEN bag, because there were none to be found. But it still tasted great and I went ahead and added the butter to the brown sugar sans the nuts just for more texture and it was awesome!
You will need:
1 cup cold milk
1 3.4 0z pkg. of Jell-O brand Pumpkin Spice Instant pudding and pie filling
*Beat together with whisk for 2 minutes.
1 cup thawed cool whip ( or whipped cream) + more for garnish
*Stir into the above mixture.
Spoon into 4 dessert dishes.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
1 T. melted butter and 1/4 cup pecan pieces and
2 T. brown sugar. Mix well and sprinkle on top of the mousse. Add a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle with a dash of brown sugar.
Serving from a nice dessert dish or glass makes this simple treat seem special.
