This 30 Minute Butterscotch Mousse is for those days when you want a mouth-watering dessert but don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen making it. My kids love this mousse. Whenever I make it, I can always count on them hanging around and begging to have some.
I like to make homemade whipped cream for the mousse but if you are crunched for time, you can use Cool Whip instead. Top this beautiful dessert off with a dollop of whip cream and you have a dessert that nobody is going to guess that it only took you 30 minutes to make.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
