Chocolate-espresso mousse shots

Total Time:   25 min   Prep: 20 min  Cook:  0 min  Serves: 16
Difficulty: Easy

Espresso-spiked chocolate pudding is layered with crushed chocolate wafers in this so simple dessert recipe. If desired, only use 1 cup skim milk and add half a cup Irish Crème liquor when you add in the espresso mixture. Sprinkle the whipped topping with additional instant espresso or garnish with a raspberry and a sprig of mint for an elegant presentation. We recommend assembling the shots the day you plan to enjoy them. But, if you’d like, make the mousse a couple of days in advance and store in the refrigerator. Wait to assemble the shots until a few hours before you plan to serve them and chill if needed.
