Strawberry “Shortcake” Mousse Cups

This recipe was one that fooled me.  It seems too easy, too simple in its ingredients to be anything that would “wow” you.  I didn’t have high expectations, I simply thought it would be ok.

Well.  This dessert impressed me a whole heck of a lot.

It is so easy, so simple, so perfect for summer… but SO GOOD!

The only problem I have with this recipe is that it only makes four.  So next time, I will double it!

Or triple, you know, for the sake of science.

I think you could also easily substitute Cool Whip for the from-scratch whipped cream in the recipe if you happened to be in a hurry.

Just make sure when you sit down to eat one that you have all the time in the world and can savor each amazing bite!

    Thanks for the divine dessert.

    Totally going to try this recipe! Just a quick question. How much of Cool Whip would I need for this recipe? (Always the one for shortcuts! )
