My mom gave me this delicious recipe. I always make it for Christmas, at everyone's request, and it's also great way to use up any extra eggnog from the holidays. Enjoy!
- 2 (4 ounce) boxes instant chocolate pudding mix
- 2 1⁄2 cups eggnog
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 1⁄2 cups heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons rum extract or 2 teaspoons brandy extract
- red maraschino cherry (optional)
- green maraschino cherry (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix the eggnog, milk and the pudding until thickened.
- Whip the heavy cream to a MEDIUM consistency and fold into the eggnog and pudding mixture.
- Add the extract and mix well. Spoon into individual dessert dishes.
- If desired, it can be decorated for the holidays with red and green maraschino cherries. Cut the red cherries in half (to resemble holly berries) and cut the green cherries into quarters and arrange them around red cherries to resemble leaves.
- Store mousse in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap, until ready to serve.
