Now that everything is in order, holidays finished and school-work schedules are back on track you might want a really easy dessert to make for a fun night with the family. Make it for a Saturday game night. It will even work with pizza if that is your norm.
- 24 chocolate Oreo cookies
- 4 tbsp. room temperature butter-not margarine
- 1 pkg. Chocolate Mousse mix (I know!)
- 1/2 cup caramel topping
- 2 large bananas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse the cookies for 2-3 minutes until fine crumbs form. Add the butter, pulse only 4 -5 times until well combined.
Press the crumbs into the bottoms and sides of 6 buttered 4 3/4 inch tart pans. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Let cool completely.
Prepare the mousse mix, reducing the milk amount to 3/4 cup. Stir in the caramel topping.
Slice the bananas and line each tart, top with the mousse mixture and garnish, of course, with whipping cream. To raise the bar a little, make it chocolate whipping cream or grated chocolate.
This is a little whimsy but a great treat just the same.
