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
Cover and refrigerate until the mixture starts to set.
Meanwhile, crumble half of a chocolate sandwich cookie into each of 4 dessert dishes
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.
Cover loosely and chill until firm, about 2 hours

Oh, YUM! Chocolate + blueberries + Oreos = what’s not to love?
I would have never put these two tastes together but now that I think about it – it would be great! I love your recipe and anything that uses Oreos is going to be a hit with the hubs!
A good combinations of ingredients, sounds good.
Oh, this sounds so good! I’ll pick up the ingredients at the grocery store and try this one. Hope all is well…
Any berry would do, and I should have blackberries and raspberries in another week or so. Sounds yummy! Anything with chocolate has to be good.
This dessert sounds delicious! I love chocolate mousse, planning to try this soon!
That looks so yummy. I just saw your comment on my blog, My Grandchildren both live in Arizona with their families, so I do not see them very much at all. I miss them.
