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
Microwave on high until bubbles appear, 30 to 60 seconds
Add chocolate chips and stir until smooth then stir in remaining evaporated milk
Remove bowl of chocolate chip mixture from refrigerator and stir until smooth. Fold blueberries into mousse.
Spoon mousse mixture into the four dessert dishes. Crumble half of a chocolate sandwich cookie over the top of each dish of mousse.
