These Mocha Mousse Trifles are simply divine. Oreo crumbs are layered with creamy mocha mousse then topped with whipped cream and an espresso bean to give you a gourmet dessert that only takes 20 minutes to pull together. Small but decadent, they make the perfect ending for any meal.
My sister is here this week and I always try to make her favorite foods just to spoil her a little. Of course, we’re enjoying our time together, walking the beach, getting massages, dining out whenever and wherever we want and catching up on all the news.
One of the things that my sister likes above all else is chocolate and coffee. I have to agree with her there, I think those are just essentials for living, right? And what’s better than combining the two into a mocha flavor and then adding it to a no-bake cheesecake base. Since I’ve made her my Dark Chocolate Kahlua Cheesecake and Mocha Cheesecake Cookie Cups I wanted to try something new. And since we are all watching what we eat, I decided to go the Seasons52 route and make mini indulgences.
All you have to do for this dessert is crush some Oreos, make some strong coffee, melt some bittersweet chocolate and add it to some cream cheese and sour cream and voila – instant dessert. I layered the Oreo crumbs in the bottom then alternated between the mocha cheesecake and the crumbs until I reached the top. To make them look extra special, I decorated them with some whipped cream and topped them with either an Oreo cookie or a chocolate covered espresso bean. It really is an amazing dessert that takes hardly any time at all.
