St. Patrick's Day Pistachio Mousse

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays. I dress my girls in all green, I let them take a green dyed bath and we do a completely green dinner with Pesto Chicken, Rainbow Cupcakes, lots of green veggies and these delicious pistachio mousse cups. If you want to make these cups in chocolate Living Better Together makes and amazing chocolate version. 

These pistachio mousse cups are easy to make and they come together in about 10 minutes. I love that they don't take advanced planning and they are absolutely delicious. 

You will need: 

  • 1 cup Cream
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Pistachio instant pudding mix
  • Chocolate Cups
Mix all of the ingredients except the chocolate cups until fluffy. Add the mousse to a piping bag with a large star tip. Pipe the mousse into chocolate cups. You can serve immediately or refrigerate until you are ready to serve. 

Do you do anything special for St. Patrick's Day?

Those are just too cute! I normally use mint for all of my St. Patrick's Day recipes, but pistachio is such a great swap. I know my family would love these.

This is such a cute idea for St. Patricks day! I would have never thought to make a dessert like this but it looks great!

Making these as we speak. Just wondering, though, what the yield for this recipe is. I am guessing four regular-size muffin cups? Thanks!
