Mint Chocolate Mousse

Yield Makes 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows*
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 6 to 8 drops red liquid food coloring (optional)
  • 36 HERSHEY'S KISSES Mint Chocolates, unwrapped
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 (4-ounce) package ready-made mini graham cracker crusts
  • Garnish: fresh mint sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Cook marshmallows and milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, 6 to 8 minutes or until marshmallows melt and mixture is smooth. Pour 1/3 cup marshmallow mixture into a bowl, and, if desired, stir in food coloring; set aside.

  2. Stir mint chocolates into remaining marshmallow mixture in saucepan, and cook, stirring constantly, over low heat 4 to 6 minutes or until chocolate melts. Remove pan from heat, and let chocolate mixture stand 1 hour or until cool.

  3. Beat whipping cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold 1 cup whipped cream into chocolate mixture in pan, and spoon evenly into ready-made mini graham cracker crusts.

  4. Fold remaining whipped cream into reserved 1/3 cup marshmallow mixture. Dollop marshmallow mixture evenly on top of chocolate mixture. Chill 3 to 4 hours or until set. Garnish, if desired.

  5. *15 large marshmallows may be substituted for miniature ones.

  6. Note: For a variation, substitute HERSHEY'S KISSES Chocolates for HERSHEY'S KISSES Mint Chocolates, and add 1/4 teaspoon almond extract or 2 teaspoons Kirsch or other cherry-flavored liqueur to 1/3 cup marshmallow mixture. Prepare as directed, omitting the mini graham cracker crusts, and spoon evenly into 4 parfait glasses. Chill as directed.
