Mousse Truffle Shots

Time for a fancy pants dessert... it's a little fussy but big on presentation and flavor!  Sometimes when I have dinner parties, I like to have a variety of desserts, so it's perfect to make them mini size so you can try them all! (These were made in 2 oz. shot glasses)  I decided to make these because my friend Sue is hosting an engagement party for her niece and was looking for some ideas for apps and desserts.  We got together for planning and I served these for her to try (along with our fellas). 

Recipe Source:  Original
(printable recipe)

The bottom layer is made of chocolate cookie crumbs, the second layer is a decadent, dense chocolate truffle, the third layer is a light, white chocolate mousse.  The combo is heavenly, the 2 chocolates play well together so the dessert is well balanced.  I topped with whipped cream and a raspberry (I think strawberries would be good too and a dusting of cocoa)





Enjoy!
