You all know we like really easy recipes, right? This holiday season we have partnered again with Hood® Cream to share an easy 5 step Pumpkin Mousse Recipe that you seriously can make, with your eyes closed. Well not literally but you know what I mean. I put a new spin on Pumpkin Pie creating a Pumpkin Mousse Pie with crumbled graham crackers in a wine glass. Many of you may have read our post a couple weeks ago that we are selling our house and in hopes that we can move soon, we have started packing and needless to say, most of my holiday glassware is packed. Wine glasses always work in pinch for dessert dishes.

This entire recipe took 10 minutes to make and about an hour to cool. So easy and so yummy! To save time, I purchased a graham cracker crust that was pre-made in the baking isle and just tipped the tin over and removed from the tin. The graham crackers were already crushed and ready to be spooned into the wine glasses.

Hood Cream is rich and creamy with the best body and texture to take your recipes to another level of taste and enjoyment. Our 5 step pumpkin mousse was a hit for dessert the other night and now I have to remake it for my grandparents in the Nursing Home. They missed out on it and when I was telling my gram about it during our last visit, she was disgusted I didn’t save her any. -ha.

    I was at the end of my rope until I stumbled upon this Blog Post. I am now surrounded by Hood Cream and enough pumpkin spice to rebalance myself on a spiritual and chemical level. Hood rocks the show with milk, cream and Their Blimp game is strong.

    It is autumn People, Nog hard.

  6. My kids and I were just talking about what kind of dessert we should bring to Thanksgiving. This is such a great idea! It’ s on the short list.
