I’ve made this recipe twice. Once for a birthday party and once for a family gathering. I layered it with graham cracker crumbs and it was a huge hit!!
Everyone loved it and I can’t get enough of it! It is so simple and easy to make, yet absolutely delicious! ~ Catherine
Strawberries or raspberries are great for Valentine’s Day, but hot fudge or caramel sauce with nuts would be equally delicious.
Just think about your favorite flavors of cheesecake and the possibilities are endless. You could even add a graham cracker crumb crust mixture to the bottom of your serving dishes.
I like to add the graham cracker crust if I want to get a few more servings from the recipe. Regular or chocolate cookie crumbs are both delicious!
I used miniature dessert dishes for my mousse and got five servings, but that’s obviously going to vary depending on the size of your dishes.
Four ounce Mason jars are another fun way to serve this dessert. The mousse is rich and creamy, so it really is the kind of dessert where you don’t need a big bowl full.
Quadrupled recipe and served in a gigantic martini glass serving dish with lots of toppings for a bridal party. Absolutely delicious and everyone loved it! Thanks for the recipe!! ~ Pat
This mousse is also great for layered parfait style desserts, but it’s just as heavenly on it’s own, so don’t hesitate to serve it as is.

Looks light and delicious- so pretty! 🙂
This looks divine. I’ll have to try this soon!
Love this recipe!! I made a couple alterations to suit my needs, but it’s fantastic! I hope you don’t mind I’m mentioning and linking your site in my blog. I’d love for you to check out my site! Thisismegan.com
Thanks for the deliciously quick recipe!
This is fantabulous! I did add a splash of lemon, but I love lemon! Will repeat!
Tried this for the first time last year. I forgot to post a review, it was/is delicious i added salted caramel then topped with a chocolate covered strawberry… love it! thanks for the recipe 🙂
I LOVE the idea of adding a chocolate covered strawberry! Thanks so much. 🙂
my event is on saturday today is thursday i wanna make these and im not sure how much in advance i can make them. please let me know when is it safe and does need refrigeration if i make them friday night?
Yes, you could make them Friday night for Saturday, and yes, they would need refrigeration.
i appreciate it. Thank you
OH GOSH! Why did you post this recipe?! I can’t stop making it!!!
Thank you! So glad you like it!
Could you make this even a few days (4 days) before the event, and keep it in a ziplock bag? Then pipe it the day of the event?
I’ve never tried making it that far ahead, but it could definitely be made 1-2 days ahead.
Quadrupled recipe and served in a gigantic martini glass serving dish with lots of toppings for a bridal party. Absolutely delicious and everyone loved it! Thanks for the recipe!!
What an amazing idea!
Do you think this would work as a filling for a two layer cake?
Yes, I think it would be amazing! But you might only need half the recipe.
Does it have to be with an electric mixer?
To get it really smooth, probably. But it can be a handheld electric mixer.
Any way to make this without corn syrup. A family member has an allergy and this sounds so good, I’d love to make it.
I left out the corn syrup and replaced the powdered sugar with splenda. still delicious. takes a bit more whipping for firm peaks is all
I’ve made this recipe twice. Once for a birthday party and once for a family gathering. I layered it with graham cracker crumbs and it was a huge hit!! Everyone loved it and I can’t get enough of it! It is so simple and easy to make, yet absolutely delicious!
Thanks so much! Glad to hear everyone enjoyed it!
This looks delicious! Can it be used as a mini cake filling?
This is such a beautiful, no-fuss dessert! I want to play around with it for a holiday theme, maybe adding peppermint extract and crushed candy canes – yum!
Thank you! I actually made this recently with peppermint extract and crushed candy canes on top. I won’t be posting the recipe until December, but I’m sure you can figure out that it’s basically the exact same but replacing the vanilla with peppermint.
So excited to try this!! My family gets together quarterly to celebrate seasonal birthdays. I always like doing dessert because I can play around more lol. For this summer I decided on Dirt Pudding Parfait with more of a mousse. I think your recipe would be perfect! Thank you!
Thanks I whipped up this Cheesecake Mousse for Thanksgiving and it was a smash hit!!! I doubled the recipe and got over a dozen tiny desserts. It’s very rich, so all one needs is a few spoonfuls.
Looked so pretty with sprinkled Graham Crackers, a Rasberry and Mint on top. It’s definitely on my FAVORITE LIST!
A fellow cook & baker affectionato, Tina!
I use a hand mixer and it comes out neat. For step 2 I use the whisk attachment and then after everything is incorporated, I use the paddle like attachment (for like a minute on low) to give it a smoother finish. This recipe is so versatile and upgraded my cakes! I use it with cake colars for easy decorating and use the left over cream and cake tops to make cake cups.
Can I use store bought whipped cream and mix in instead of making the whipped cream??
Yes. It may not set up as firmly, but it will work.
