Low-cal Mousse in Chocolate Shells

A sweet, little treat to end a meal!
Have you bought any of the preformed chocolate shells yet?  I have found them at Target and at World Market.  They are just wonderful for a little treat and you can fill them with so many different things...pudding, ice cream, berries, etc., etc.  Here's how I filled them:

I package white chocolate instant sugar- free pudding mix (or any flavor that you like)
1 and 1/2 cups milk
about half an 8-ounce tub of frozen whipped topping, thawed
The zest of 1 orange (this adds great flavor)
I package of the chocolate dessert shells
Fresh berries for garnish or chocolate curls

Mix the pudding and milk together for two minutes. Fold in the whipped topping and the orange zest. Fill the shells and you have a yummy dessert!! Top with a fresh berry and/or chocolate curls.  You will have leftover pudding mix to enjoy later.

  1. I have used them for various tea parties in the past, but not for a long while - you have reminded me - and I have never even heard of white chocolate pudding - what a perfect thing to use.

    Love your idea and will definately have to try soon! Thank you, Kitty!

    Have a great day!

  2. easy and yummy!!! sounds like a winner.. thanks!

  3. Kitty, Those are really pretty. I am excited as I begin a cake/cookie decorating class tomorrow! Look for my (beginner) efforts to hit my blog in the next few weeks. lol

  4. What a pretty and yummy dessert, Kitty! I haven't seen those shells but then we don't have a Target yet. There's word that we may be getting one though.
    Those puddings can be turned into the most wonderful desserts. The orange zest would really make it delish! Thanks for sharing this delightful recipe. It's always lovely to have you for tea.


  5. I haven't seen those! I'll need to look for them. Love this mousse, I can eat more of it because it's lower calorie. :)

  6. I haven't seen the adorable chocolate bowls, but will be on the lookout. This is a simple and delicious treat we go for! Thanks for sharing...and have a terrific Tuesday.

  7. Hi Kitty,
    I have to look for those. The desert sound great and easy. Thank you for the recipe.
    best greetings, Johanna

  8. Hi Kitty
    I don't know if we have the chocolate shells here in Ontario but I could certainly make an elegant dessert with them.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  9. I haven't seen the little chocolate shells, I'll have to search for them. This dessert sounds super!

  10. Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  11. We used to buy those every year but haven't for a while. Sam's Club sells them around Christmas time, so that's why we buy them. One of my cousins has a husband who's diabetic, so we used to make this chocolate mousse. His was sugar free and everyone else had it with sugar. Then we would put the regular mousse in these cups. Delish!

    I haven't made those in a long time so thanks for reminding me by joining my party.

  12. sounds yummy, I have not seen those shells here before, but the filling I would love to make.

  13. Kitty, what an elegant dessert presentation. This looks very delicious! Hope you are having a great week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
    Miz Helen
