The Best Oreo Mousse Recipe

Updated on October 30, 2011

This is an Oreo mousse recipe that is so easy to prepare that even children can make this dessert. The prep time is about 30 minutes. It also requires at least three hours to cool in the refrigerator. You can even make it the day before and keep in the refrigerator overnight.

Ingredients

One sixteen ounce package of Oreo cookies

Two tablespoons of milk

Two tablespoons of melted butter

½ cup of heavy cream

Two cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Two cups of whipped cream

Directions

Crush about fifteen Oreos and spread across the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. You may need to use a few more Oreos depending on the exact size of the dish.

Mix the melted butter and milk together and drizzle over the Oreos.

Combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the heavy cream into a microwave safe mixing bowl.

Microwave for 30 seconds and then stir. Repeat this until the chocolate is melted.

Stir the mixture until it is smooth. Allow it to cool to room temperature.

Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the whipped cream and fold in until it is completely combined.

Pour about one third of the mixture into the baking dish. Put about eight or nine cookies on top of the mousse. Repeat this step until all the mousse has been used.

Cover the baking dish a keep in the refrigerator until ready to use, at least three hours.

Garnish with remaining Oreos and serve.

      Made this yesterday. Definitely not like any mousse I've had before. Not light and fluffy. And it was way too sweet for half my family.
