I may have just made the easiest dessert on the face of the planet. It’s easy, it’s cute and it took about 5 to 10 minutes to whip up.
I know it’s super impressive right. Pfft!
These were born out of sheer necessity. I joined a group of bloggers to do a St. Patrick’s Day Group Post, then proceeded to get the flu. I had planned to make something else, but after not having been to the grocery store in 10 days the pantry had slim pickings. I still wasn’t ready to go shopping at the time I needed to get the photo ready so I had to get creative, and quick. So this is what happens when I have the flu but I still want snackies in the house for the family.
Cute, fun, easy, and green for St. Patrick’s Day. You’re welcome.
- 1 cup graham crumbs
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 package of pistachio pudding mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup whipping cream (I used cool whip)
- ½ cup whipping cream
- optional- crushed or chopped pistachios
- In a small bowl mix the graham crumbs and melted butter. Press into cups.Tamp down. The bottom end of a honey dripper works really well.
- Mix all three ingredients in a stand mixer (or hand mixer and bowl) until fluffy. Transfer to a piping bag and pipe into cups.
- Put you whipping cream in a piping bag and pipe over top of the mousse.
- Top with pistachios if desired.
- Place in the fridge for about 2 to 4 hours to chill well.
- Serve with a big old luck of the Irish smile!
