Bunny Ears Mousse for Easter

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Hello friends, I have a treat for you today – an edible one just in time for Easter. My friend Matthew Mead, stylist, author, home decor design expert, and former style editor of Country Home magazine sent me this creative and simple idea to share with you for serving a sweet dessert on Easter Sunday. It’s Bunny Ears Mousse!

Please welcome back Matthew Mead and his recipe for Bunny Ears Mousse.

“I am a huge fan of innovation and a bigger fan of Trader Joe’s. I am always out looking for new ideas that are quick, simple and eye catching to bring to the dining room. This Easter I am making these charming mousse cups inspired by Palmiers Cookies that look just like bunny ears. With a few pantry supplies and some creativity you can create these adorable desserts yourself.

You Will Need: Two packages of mousse mix, select from white chocolate, vanilla, or milk chocolate (we used Dr. Oetker brand) and prepare according to package directions; 2 recipes of whipped cream, prepared (see below); angel hair pasta; mini marshmallows; Palmier cookies from Trader Joe’s*; colored icing (optional); jelly beans and sprinkles for garnish (if desired).

*If there is no Trader Joe’s near you, make your own Palmiers ear shaped cookies with several recipes available online.

An Easter Table

What is Easter without a bunny right?  Kids might consider this torture – a peekaboo chocolate rabbit nestled in edible grass in a milk glass compote.  My children are begging to chomp on his ears.
