I went looking for something new and different to take to my Neighborhood Gal Pals Afternoon Card Game and I found this idea for a sweet treat. I already had these 6-ounce disposable dessert cups at Dollar Tree, but Mason Jars are a great larger serving size for the family.
No-Bake Meyer Lemon Mousse Cups
Makes 8-Half Pint Mason Jars or 12-6 ounce Dessert Cups
Ingredients for the Mousse:
2 C. Non-dairy Whipped topping (aka Cool Whip)
1 C. Meyer Lemon Curd
12 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 C. Powdered Sugar
Ingredients for the Graham Cracker Crumb:
½ C. Graham Cracker Crumb or 4 full sheets of Graham Crackers, crushed well
2 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar
2 Tbsp. Butter, melted
In a large bowl, beat the Cream Cheese with a mixer until soft and fluffy.
Add the Meyer Lemon Curd and combine well.
Fold in the Non-dairy topping, set aside.
In another bowl combine the Graham Cracker Crumb.
Spoon the Mousse filling into a large zip-top baggie and clip one of the corners, creating a piping bag.
In each jar/dessert cup, start layering crumb-filling-crumb, etc to the desired finish, ie for the ½ pint jars create 3 layers of Crumb and 2 layers of Mousse & for the dessert cups only 2 layers of Crumb to 1 layer of Mousse.
Cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill until you’re ready to serve.
Cook for your friends and family!
