  • 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 24-cup mini muffin tin with nonstick baking spray. Set aside.

  • 2

    Knead the Pillsbury cookie dough together with flour until well combined. Roll 1-1/2 tablespoons of dough into a ball and place it into the prepared mini muffin pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in preheated oven for 12-18 minutes, or just until the edges of the dough begin to turn a light golden brown.

  • 3

    Remove cookies from the oven and, using the end of a wooden rolling pin, press the center of each cookie down to create an indent for the mousse filling. Gently remove from the tins.

  • 4

    Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 60 seconds, or just until the chocolate melts. Stir until smooth. Dip the tops of each cookie cup into the melted chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes to rim the cups. Set aside until chocolate hardens.

  • 5

    In a stand mixer, whip the whipping cream with a beater attachment until soft peaks form. Add frosting, liqueur, and peppermint extract to the whipping cream and beat just until firm peaks form. Spoon the mousse mixture into an icing bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe mousse mixture into the center of each cookie cup. Sprinkle with crushed chocolate chips, if desired. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Candy Cane Mousse Cake

This Candy Cane Mousse Cake is a knockout Christmas dessert! It has alternating layers of moist chocolate cake and candy cane mousse, covered with a shiny chocolate glaze and a spectacular candy cane topping. If you love this, you will also love this Chocolate Candy Cane Cake, Candy Cane Cake, and Peppermint Mocha Mousse Cake.

My Very Favorite Christmas Cake

At the risk of bragging, this is one of the best Christmas cakes I’ve ever made.

To say I am obsessed with this Candy Cane Mousse Cake is an understatement. I’ve made it four times in the last two weeks, and I’m not tired of it yet! (Don’t worry—in addition to gorging on it ourselves, we’ve also shared it with family, coworkers, and neighbors.)

This cake just hits all of my pleasure spots. Rich, dark chocolate cake? Check! Light and fluffy mousse? Check! Minty flavor that’s refreshing but not too strong? Checkity check check! Subtle, understated decorations? Che—wait, no. You didn’t forget the SugarHero motto, did you? “Go big, and then go bigger.” That’s the SugarHero way!

So let’s talk about what’s really going on with this beast of a candy cane cake.

Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake. (I also have a Pumpkin Chocolate Mousse Cake, if you want to see an autumn-themed version as well!) That cake is one of my very favorites, and I’ve decided I’m not going to be happy until I’ve tried new variations of it for every season and every holiday. Repeat with me: Go big, and then go bigger! Should I embroider that on a throw pillow for my house? Asking for a friend.

I recommend Andes chips instead of candy cane bits, because candy cane bits get soft and sticky very quickly. They wouldn’t stand a chance when mixed into the mousse! If you can’t find the peppermint crunch chips, any pieces of chocolate-mint candy will do. As long as you avoid hard mint candies in the mousse, you’ll be fine!

So let’s talk about the decorations. After the mousse cake was set, I added a top layer of shiny chocolate ganache dripping down the sides. And on top? A winter candy wonderland, of course!

This truly is one of my very favorite holiday desserts, and I hope you’ll give it a try!

Crushed candy canes give this easy dessert a festive feel. Because the rich flavor comes from the chocolate, choose a high-quality dark chocolate with at least 55 percent cocoa content.

  • 1 Tbs. butter or soy margarine

  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy canes or Starlight mints

Preparation

1. Heat chocolate, milk, and butter in large metal bowl placed over pot of simmering water until chocolate is melted and mixture smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in peppermint extract.

2. Meanwhile, beat egg whites and salt with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar, and beat until stiff peaks form.

3. Stir 1 cup egg-white mixture into chocolate mixture until smooth. Fold remaining egg-white mixture into chocolate mixture with spatula until no white streaks remain.
