Pot of gold chocolate mousse cups


Over on Instagram I've been finding lots of neat stuff lately. I like Instagram well 'cause it's instant, I post a lot of stuff there before it hits the blog, my Instagram account name is bubbleandsweet (LINK HERE).

Like I said I've been finding lots of fun cute stuff there like these rainbow stripe spoons from Bespoke Party Products that I used to make these 'pot o gold' desserts.

The desserts are chocolate mousse topped with gold nugget rice krispie and finished with the rainbow spoons.

The rice krispie treat added a lovely crunch to the mousse which was great textural contrast.

Pretty much you can use any chocolate recipe you like. Mine were more pots of chocolate cream than mousse but you get the idea.

Pop the mousse into little pot shaped glasses (mine vintage glasses from a friend) allow to set, pop some rice krispie nuggets on top and then stick in a spoon.

Gold Nugget rice krispie decoration

100grams yellow candy melts
1/2 cup rice bubbles (rice krispies)
2 Tbsp gold sugar

Melt the candy melts in the microwave at medium heat for 90 seconds. Mix in the rice krispies.

Spread mixture onto a tray lined with baking/ parchment paper and then sprinkle gold sugar over top. Place in fridge to set, break into small pieces. Store in airtight container for up to 1 weeks.

  1. Love these, the "gold nuggets" are perfect!!

  2. Hi Linda, I very much like the way your photographs are grouped together and wondered which software you would use to do this? I use Powerpoint for my presentation boards for my Interior Design course, but when I save the Powerpoint as a jpeg the images lose clarity even though they are large pixel sizes and 300dpi. I wondered if you could please advise, as your images look great quality. Thanks.

    1. Hi for the collaging I use PicMonkey :)

    2. Thanks Linda, I've not heard of that before, but looks great, so professional. :-)
