Not everyone is a baker, but everyone wants a good dessert every now and then. This is where these Salted Caramel Coffee Mousse Cups come in. The mousse has only a handful of ingredients and most of the flavor comes from the already bottled up Salted Caramel Milk that you can buy pre-made. This means that you’re getting all the flavor of the Salted Caramel, but without the labor involved in making it from scratch. Thank you to our friends at Darigold for sponsoring this recipe and providing me with the Salted Caramel Milk~!

Once you understand the steps that are involved, these dessert cups come together in a matter of minutes. When I first opened the package with the Salted Caramel Milk, I knew instantly what I wanted to make. From there, it took me about 20 minutes to bring it all together. This was one of those experiments that worked on the first try! I guess, when you’re as excited to make something as I was, it just all works out!

This Salted Caramel Mousse doesn’t taste fatty or greasy like some cream ladened mousses do. Instead it tastes light on the tongue, with just the right balance of flavors. The Coffee Chocolate layer on top works nicely with the Mousse flavors and each spoonful almost feels like a fancy coffee drink in a mousse form with a delicious flavor of Salted Caramel.

These beautiful cups of Salted Caramel Coffee Mousse really don’t need any garnish, they look pretty as is. But, if you have a good block of white chocolate, you can add some “wow!” factor to the top of each mousse cup by shaving the chocolate block with a vegetable peeler. If your curls are falling apart as you’re shaving, try microwaving the chocolate for a couple of seconds at a time, until you can run your vegetable peeler along the rib of the chocolate and the curls come out smooth and unbroken.

Now go grab a couple bottles of the Salted Caramel Milk and impress your family with these beautiful Salted Caramel Coffee Mousse Cups!

 

Salted Caramel Coffee Mousse Cups Recipe

Yield: six 5 oz cups

Ingredients for the Salted Caramel Mousse Layer

2 cups Darigold Salted Caramel milk
1/4 cup Darigold Salted Caramel Milk
4 oz whipped heavy cream or whipped topping
2 3/4 tsp unflavored, powdered, gelatin
1 tsp vanilla

Ingredients for the Coffee Chocolate Layer

1/4 cup Darigold Salted Caramel milk
1/4 cup  Darigold Salted Caramel milk
1/2 tsp unflavored, powdered, gelatin
1 Tbsp cocoa
1 packet instant coffee powder, or 1 tsp of instant coffee powder.
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp sugar, granulated

How to make Salted Caramel Coffee Mousse Cups

Pour 1/4 cups of Darigold Salted Caramel milk into a small cup, then add 2 3/4 tsp of unflavored powdered gelatin. Stir and let sit for 2 minutes before microwaving for 20 seconds. Stir again until the gelatin dissolves. Do not boil the mixture.

Run the mixture through a sieve into a larger bowl. Then, add 3 Tbsp sugar,  1 tsp of vanilla extract and give it a quick stir. While continuously whisking the mixture add 2 cups of the Darigold Salted Caramel Milk into the gelatin mixture. If the mixture starts to set, you can microwave it for about 10 seconds, just to warm it up enough and prevent the mixture from thickening or setting.

If using regular heavy whipping cream, whip 4 oz of whipping cream in a separate container until stiff peaks. Using whipped topping in this recipe though will produce a fluffier mousse with lighter texture.
Add about the milk mixture we prepared earlier into the whipped cream in 3 additions, carefully combining everything in between. In the end you should have a fluffy, but liquid mixture.

Divide the Salted Caramel Mousse mixture between six 5 oz-6 oz  containers equally. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes, or in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, just until the Salted Caramel Mousse mixture is no longer runny and can handle the Coffee Chocolate Layer being poured on top without being disturbed. If placing in the freezer, make sure to set the timer or the mousse will freeze.
