Creamy chocolate mousse, a layer of sprinkles with sugar garnish. And of course our gingerbread cookies are not missing. A Halloween dessert recipe.
You may think that this dessert is a bit tricky, but you can score most of it in the supermarket and a good baking supply shop. You only need to bake the cookies yourself, but they are also ready within half an hour. And then you can dig your own graves. Well figuratively then.
Of course I make a lot of this recipes all from scratch, but some things are really beyond my reach (I know my own limits). Such as hands and mini roses, those are really things that are not the things I'm good at. Fortunately, bake supply shops offer a solution and these sugar figures come from there. They are from Wilton and they have a lot of Halloween in the assortment (and no it's not advertising, because unfortunately I don't get paid for this). I only mention it so you know where to look ?
All in all it is a recipe that, after baking the cookies, you put together in a few minutes and therefore really ideal as, for example, the closing of a real Halloween party.
It's a good taste!
