Eggless Mousse Recipe

It is like just yesterday we celebrated Christmas and in just a blink of an eye it’s another Christmas! Hope you all have finalised your Christmas menu and are all set to celebrate with your loved ones… If you are still confused with the menu you can go through my Christmas special here or I have created an album on my Facebook page that you can check out...

Strawberry and White Chocolate Mousse Cake is a very easy to make recipe. I made this first time for my husband’s birthday earlier this year. That time I set it in a cake tin and I also did mirror glazing on top of it. It was an awesome birthday cake for people who prefer something different from the usual.... I am a huge fan of making desserts in individual glasses, so the second time I prepared this, I served it in individual glasses like in the picture. I really loved the way it turned out! Do try this recipe, I am sure you will love this no bake eggless decadent dessert!

How to make Cinnamon Roll Fudge

Cinnamon Roll Fudge
(Recipe from here)
Evaporated Milk - 2/3 cup / 170 gm can (not sweetened condensed milk)
Granulated sugar - 1 1/3 cup
Vanilla Essence - 1 teaspoon
A pinch of salt
Mini Marshmallows - 1 1/2 cups
White chocolate chips - 1 1/2 cup
Cinnamon chips - 1 cup

  • Melt cinnamon chips in a heat safe bowl on top of a small pot of simmering water. Do not let the hot water touch the bowl. Take the bowl off when cinnamon chips are melted and set aside. (The melted cinnamon chips may have a thick consistency. But when it cools, it will become creamy.)
  • Put marshmallows and white chocolate in a large mixing bowl, set aside.
  • Bring milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt to boil over medium heat. Cook for 4 minutes, stir constantly. Remove from heat.
  • Pour over marshmallows and white chocolate. Stir until all combined and the chocolate chips and marshmallows are melted. (If marshmallows are not melted, you have to heat the mixture in low heat stirring continuously).
  • Pour 1/2 the fudge mixture into a lined 8” X 8” baking dish. Line the pan with parchment paper or aluminium foil, sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Spoon small dollops of 1/2 of the melted cinnamon chips onto the bottom layer of fudge mixture. Continue with the rest of the fudge mixture and finish off with the rest of the melted cinnamon. Glide a knife all the way through the fudge to make swirls.
  • Place in the refrigerator to set up for at least 2 hours or set overnight at room temperature before cutting into pieces.
  • Enjoy!
