I got the idea for this dessert from a recipe on the Blueberry Council web site.  I changed it to suit my taste, ingredients and the way I wanted to serve it.

The mousse alone would be very good but the addition of the cookie adds a bit more richness and flavor.  My daughters and I really enjoyed it.

BLUEBERRY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

  • 1 cup undiluted evaporated milk, divided
  • 1-¼ teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  •  ½ cup milk chocolate chips (Ghirardelli)
  •  4 chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreo)
  •  ½ cup fresh blueberries

In a medium microwaveable bowl, place 1/3-cup evaporated milk.  Sprinkle gelatin over and stir to mix
Set aside to allow gelatin to soften for 5 minutes
