These St. Patrick’s Day Pistachio Mousse Cups are quick, easy and the perfect little green treat to share with all the little leprechauns in your life!
I may have just made the easiest dessert on the face of the planet. It’s quick, simple and it’s cute! Plus it only took a few minutes to whip up.
I know it’s super impressive right. Pfft!
These were born out of sheer necessity. I wanted to do a St. Patrick’s Day 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.
I am so thankful the flu is over and I’m back in the kitchen. Super excited to share normal recipes with you again. Yah for being healthy again. Bring on the baking!! That makes total sense in blogger speak, trust me.

These St. Patrick's Day Pistachio Mousse Cups are quick, easy and the perfect little green treat to share with all the little leprechauns in your life!
- 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)
- 1/2 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!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
