Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Pumpkin Mousse

Pumpkin Mousse

Those of you who know me may be shocked to hear that I didn't put up a single Halloween decoration this year. Between work, home obligations, doctor visits, and life in general, there just wasn't any time to pull them from the attic. This is the first time in 15 years that I missed decorating for my favorite holiday, but I suppose there's a first for everything, right? I did manage to take a little breather in between all of my running and treated myself to a well deserved bowl of Pumpkin Mousse, a recipe I had saved from Golden Blossom Honey. 
 
 
Fans of pumpkin pie are going to dig this creamy, dreamy fall treat. It really is like a pumpkin pie in a dish, but the toffee candy bits really push it over the edge from great to spectacular. Though, I'm going to admit that I added a heaping amount more of the candy bits to my mousse than was called for in the recipe, because sometimes a girl just needs a little treat when life's stresses are piling up. This recipe would be great as a Halloween dessert, or if you already have your menu planned, save it for Thanksgiving. Or just because, because why not?

Ingredients

3 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 can pumpkin puree, not pie filling
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 toffee bars (1.4 ounces each), such as Skor, crushed

  1. Why cannot you put them up now, it is still mid October LOL But then again I hate Halloween decor, but love Thanksgiving one.
    The mousse looks tres lovely! And your lil white and orange pumpkins are adorable too! We've had a mild frost this morning, it was dangerously close to zero, so I will have to start stacking veggies for winter before they all freeze and disappear from the green market.

    1. Because I have a shit ton of decorations and it's not worth me dragging them all out to put up for 2 weeks then have to tear back down. I usually put them up mid September so I can enjoy them longer.
      I hope we're not in for a long, hard winter, especially with the shipping containers backed up. I do think we all need to be stocking up and canning veggies now while we still can.

  2. That looks absolutely delicious! We have 3 home projects. The outdoor one is taking place right now and is a 3 week project. We are having our master bath remodeled and have been to 7 meetings so far! It’s been a lot, but this company is thorough. Project won’t start till next year. Then there’s the half bath that we are also having redone by a different company. Hoping that one gets started next month. So yeah, a lot of time online seeing what I like before choosing,

  4. Cinnamon, cloves and pumpkin are so perfect for this time of year. You can bet I'd be loading up on extra toffee bits too. Yum. You can still decorate... leave 'em up until Thanksgiving?

  9. Pumpkin mousse and its presentation looks great! I am a dessert lover but i am not sure whether i add only honey without sugar or both of them!

    1. Thank you! I think this one is sweet enough with just the honey. No extra sugar necessary.

  11. I've never had pumpkin mousse. I think I've got all the ingredients! Sorry about your decorations. I'm not sure if we're going to do any, either.

    1. It's been a rough couple of years. I think it's ok if we both skip the decorations this year.

  13. So I don't normally do cream or dairy, but I'm all in on this one! It sounds amazing!!! I'm keeping very busy, but with all the wrong things. LOL Although, the first half of our trip to the Catskills was extremely relaxing and enjoyable. It was filled with hikes, farms, Fall foliage, and delicious food.

    1. I'm glad that your Catskills trip allowed you a little R&R time! I know this past year has been quite stressful for you, so you deserve it!

  14. Life's stresses are piling up, all right. We may need two of those plus the added candy.
