Yes, I am trying to eat better. That does not mean I am not going to want a little dessert now and then that actually tastes good – I mean a girl can only go so long without chocolate especially!
JELLO must know this because they are introducing a yummy new indulgence called Mousse Temptations. These are decadent treats that I was lucky enough to get samples of. The flavors available are Caramel Creme, Dark Chocolate Decadence, and Chocolate Indulgence. They are sugar-free and only 60 calories each!
Now I forced Hubby and Taylor to give these a try – aren’t I a terrible wife and mother? We all enjoyed them on their own, with the Chocolate Indulgence being our favorite. While they are very good on their own, we thought we might bump them up a bit to make them more of a full dessert for us, but still keeping them fairly low in calories and fat for a dessert.
What we added to the cups of Mousse Temptations were a little Cool Whip, some Barry’s Bakery French Twists, and a few sliced raw almonds. We each made our own variation as you can see in the picture (Hubby’s, then Taylor’s, then mine). Taylor was very creative and layered half with the Caramel Creme and half with the Chocolate Indulgence with the Cool Whip in between. I crumbled up part of my Twist to make a crumb like crust. We were all very satisfied with our creations and the highest one was only 125 calories and about 6g of fat – remember that is for a pretty satisfying dessert so I don’t think that is too bad at all.
Whether you would eat them as is or make your own little creations I do suggest you try the Mousse Temptations by JELLO when you see them in the store. Enjoy!
