Quick and Simple Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse

I love this recipe.  It's delicious layered in parfait glasses with fresh sliced strawberries or banana's.  Try freezing it in small cups with a Popsicle stick for a fabulous frozen treat!

The simplicity of this dish is one of my favorite things, and with only 4 ingredients you just can't lose.  This is also a great go to recipe for last minute guests.

Quick and Simple Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse 

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (3.4 oz.) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 c. cold milk
1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided

In a medium mixing bowl beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
In a second mixing bowl combine the pudding mix and milk. Mix until powder is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.  Set aside for 3-4 minutes.
Add the pudding mix to the beaten cream cheese and again mix everything until it is well incorporated.  
Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.
Pour into glasses, ramekins, or other serving dishes and chill until the mousse is set (2-3 hours).
Divide the remaining whipped topping among each serving and enjoy!

If you are making frozen treats, omit the remaining whipped topping and save for another use.

Try making this recipe with vanilla pudding mix, cheesecake pudding mix, Oreo pudding or whatever flavor you think will be delish!
