Today we are moving on to the No-Bake portion of our Chocolate Mousse Cake.

I know these aren’t traditional Mousse recipes. Mousse usually has an egg component. This really is flavored Whipped Cream. I didn’t even use some gelatin to help firm it up. Oh well, lets just keep it simple! The chocolate mousse recipe as well as the cookie butter mousse can be made and served as a pudding replacement for dessert. Add a dollop of soft whipped cream and a few chocolate shavings and it’ll be a nice dessert for a weekday night.

  3. Fold ½ of the whipped cream into the cookie butter mixture until almost blended then fold in remainder of the whipped cream until completely blended.
  4. Pour Cooke Butter Mousse over the shortbread crust using an offset spatchula to spread it evenly.
  5. Wait 4 to 5 hours before making the chocolate mousse.
For the Chocolate Mousse
  1. Place chocolate in a food processor and grind until no large pieces remain.
  2. Heat milk and sugar in a small saucepan and bring just to a boil. With the food processor running, pour the hot milk mixture through the feed tube and process until the chocolate is completely melted. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add the vanilla, and process until blended. Scrape mixture into a large bowl. Let cool for 15 minutes.

Easy Cookie Butter Mousse that is easy to make and is a fun dessert.
I love Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter right from the container! I bet you eat it with a spoon as well! Lol!

I thought this would be a perfect swap for peanut butter. It was good, however, with the addition of the cream cheese and all the whipped cream, the flavor was diluted and then overpowered by the chocolate mousse.

Maybe next time I’ll go the peanut butter route… or maybe I’ll try some Peanut Butter & Co White Chocolate Wonderful Spread instead. That sounds good!
