By now you should be indulging in everything pumpkin! If you aren’t, it’s not too late to treat yourself to this delectable Pumpkin Mousse! There’s no better way to celebrate this beautiful season than to make this SUPER-EASY & FABULOUS pumpkin dessert and trust me when I say you’ll be licking everything this touches.
I promised you a quick and delicious recipe on this next post and HERE IT IS!
Best thing other than how easy it is, you can fancy-it up and peeps will think it took you all day to prepare it or you can just layer it in a trifle bowl and you can still impress. Another bonus… it’s gluten free!
I’ve made a different version of pumpkin yum in a jar for many years that ask for ginger snaps (for extra Fall in your mouth), but experimenting with gluten free cooking led me to try this new favorite as a gf option and to tell you the truth—it’s fabulous and no one will be the wiser! Heck, you’ll want to just eat the mousse right out of the bowl—without the crumbs or the cool whip topping. Go for it! But all the way is pretty fab!
My daughter was hosting a meeting and asked if I would help with a dessert and the craft for the ladies. (Here’s a peek at the craft!)
Naturally you want to have something super easy to serve while everyone has enough time to paint, put their craft together, and to visit. This dessert in a jar was my first go-to and with some minor modifications, (really mainly the graham cracker crumbs which my daughter found at the local store), or you can order here, the yum-in-a-jar is quite a breeze.
It makes it so much easier to fill in the jars if you pour the mousse in a plastic bag, cut the tip-off and just swirl in each jar, (looks prettier and neater too)!
I also doubled my recipe to make enough for the club crowd but one batch is perfect for the trifle bowl presentation or for about six half pint jars, which is the perfect size for individual servings. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
Get ready for a pumpkin coma!
