The Doctor Is In… With Mousse!

This post is about two things: Dr. Oetker Mousse stuffed into Kane Candy Party Cups! Well, maybe three… It’s National Mousse Day (thanks again to Foodimentary.com)! Time to make ourselves an extravagant and simple treat to celebrate! And since the holidays are upon us, I thought it would be a great day and special way to perhaps show what we can do with some of these products to make our holiday season more festive! And maybe it’s actually about a fourth thing… I do think a doctor also needs to help ME with my decorating skills, at least my holiday decorating skills! As you’ll see in this post, I had high hopes, but I had a great attempt!

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate mousse and who doesn’t love a chocolate candy cup? Put the two together and it’s a party in your mouth! Party, party my people! My youngest helped me prepare the mousse, which is super simple and easy! Just add one cup of cold milk to the Dr. Oetker mix and blend away with an electric mixer for about 3-5 minutes. I find the best way to fill the Kane Candy Cups is to just fill a pastry bag with the mousse and then fill from there. I also leave the Kane Candy Cups in their tray they were packaged in, it helps to keep everything secure while trying to add the filling!

 

What’s perfect about this combination is that the mousse is four servings and you get four cups. Perfect! So fill those chocolate cups to the top and decorate! This treat took less than ten minutes to pull together, so if you find yourself in a rush to make something, put two and two together and you’ve four! Four servings of chocolate bliss! And what’s even cool about the Kane Candy Cups is that this particular package, the Dark Chocolate Party Cups, come with chocolate shavings included – so if you were last minute on prepping the dessert to begin with, they’ve also got you covered in the decorating area as well! What a bonus!

My best work came by just using the shavings that came with the package:

And if you want to see my holiday attempt, here you go! I tried to do a reindeer, but it looks like a sad form of bunny rabbit. I think I will need to use the mini-sized candy canes. The larger ones I think are too bulky, heavy and large for this size cup! So here we go, and feel free to laugh at my reindeer attempt, because I did!

Tasty Pumpkin Treats.

Welcome to October! Around this time of year, most everything is flavored PUMPKIN! Today’s post is a really tasty recipe that uses Kane Candy® White Chocolate Cordial & Toasting Cups. The recipe for today is White Chocolate Pumpkin Pots! They are easy to make and will not last long once they are ready and prepared for your guests! The recipe is posted below, but if you want to find an easy PDF file that you can quickly access and print, it can be found here on our website.

White Chocolate Pumpkin Pots

Ingredients:

  • Kane Candy White Chocolate Cordial & Toasting Cups
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding (we used French Vanilla)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup cold milk
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream, divided
  • 1//4 cup pecans

Steps:

  1. Beat pumpkin, dry pudding mix, pumpkin spice and milk in a large bowl with a wish for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in 1 cup of whipped cream.
  3. Fill KaneCandy® cups with pumpkin mixture. (We used a pastry bag to fill the cups.)
  4. Refrigerate for one hour.
  5. Top with remaining whipped cream and nuts just before serving.

*Just a side note, on the pictures provided, due to time constraints, we did use whipped cream from a can for the topping and we forgot to add the pecans, but we did have someone visiting with a nut allergy. Better safe than sorry!

If you make these, I promise you, they will not last long! This recipe makes quite a bit of filling, so be sure to have more than one package of Kane Candy® chocolate cups! There is plenty of filling to fill more!
