Strawberry and Donut Charlotte Mousse Dessert

My word for the year is EASY! I’ve come to the conclusion that life is hard enough, and dessert should NOT be difficult. I need more EASY recipes in my life and this Charlotte Mousse is just the sort of dessert I’m talking about!

Traditional Charlottes use ladyfingers. This fun twist used donuts and strawberries!

A few months ago, Little Debbie asked if I was interested in trying their new mini-frosted chocolate donuts. Who am I to say no? They asked for nothing in return, but I decided to have fun with them and used them as a “crust” for this Charlotte.

A traditional Charlotte uses Ladyfingers to go around the dessert – I went with a fun twist of donuts and strawberries instead. 

Who can resist Chocolate Donuts and sweet Strawberries. This strawberry Mousse Charlotte is perfect for dessert!

Don’t ya just LOVE it? I know I sure do!

Marshmallow Mousse

For this easy filling I decided to make a strawberry Marshmallow Mousse. Did you know you can get strawberry marshmallow fluff? Well, keep an eye out because you can!

As you are making the marshmallow mousse filling, take a taste of it. If you want more strawberry flavor add a 1/4 teaspoon of strawberry extract to give it a little extra punch. I also noticed that once the Cool Whip was added the color faded a lot so I added a touch of pink food coloring. 

As you can see, it was just a touch. Nothing drastic.

This easy technique can be done with a no-bake cheesecake filling as well. 

Or you can get extra fancy and make it with custard. Mmmm! Both sound good to me.
