Pumpkin like you've never had it before. Luscious and rich tasting, it makes a perfect cannoli filling. Break completely with tradition and use this luscious and rich tasting pumpkin mousse to fill cannoli (pictured). We garnished these Pumpkin Cannoli with stripes of chocolate syrup and kicked it up a bit further by dipping the open ends in chocolate sprinkles. This is a deliciously original dessert. It’s quick and easy with purchased cannoli shells, and will be well received whether you serve it as part of a buffet or individually. TIP: See the READY MADE page for where to purchase ready-to-use cream puff or cannoli shells and crepés.
OTHER WAYS TO USE THIS DELICIOUS MOUSSE:
Instead of Pumpkin Pie: Utterly delectable, our Pumpkin Mousse Mix takes pumpkin to a new level. It’s a wonderful change from pumpkin pie. Pile it into martini glasses, top with crumbled ginger snap cookies (pictured). Or be a bit more elegant and serve topped with whipped cream (pictured). Either way, it’s an excellent, light dinner dessert.
Fun Desserts: It’s totally unique as Pumpkin Mousse Dip for French Toast Bites at brunch or for a late evening dessert. Finish off casual parties with Pumpkin Mousse Topped Waffle Bites. TIP: Bake frozen French toast sticks and mini-waffles to make these dishes even more quick and easy!
Reinvent Breakfast: This mousse is show stopping in Waffles with Pumpkin Mousse Topping (pictured). It’s also delicious in Pumpkin Mousse Topped Pancakes. Both are great ways to make any breakfast special.
However you plan to serve it, consider replacing 2-3 tablespoons of the milk with bourbon or rum. This is a fine Southern tradition for pumpkin pies, and adds the same flare to our mousse.
Note: Make with reduced fat cream cheese and Lite Cool Whip® for light and fluffy mousse texture
