Strawberry Jello Mousse

Never was a strawberry mousse so simple yet stunning.
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 40 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup graham cracker or digestive biscuits blitzed into crumbs (you can do this in a food bag with a rolling pin to save on washing up)
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 punnet fresh sliced strawberries
  • 1 3oz packet strawberry gelatine
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • ½ cup milk
  • 8 oz cool whip (if usa based – if in the uk use whipped double cream. I used cool whip here as it holds and keeps longer)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350f and grease a 9” square baking tin.
  • Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter then press into the grease baking tin.
  • Place in the oven for ten minutes until golden.

  • Using cooking cutters or shaped moulds, cut out shapes in the mousse and place onto individual plates. I used heart and circle moulds.
