Ingredients

  • One 15-ounce can pumpkin purée
  • 4 Cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 Cup white chocolate
  • 3/4 Cups super fine sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, or cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • 2 drops yellow food coloring

Directions

Combine the pumpkin purée, 1 cup of the cream, the chocolate, sugar, and spice in a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes. Cool completely.

Whip 3 cups of cream and 1 tablespoon of the vanilla to soft peaks, and fold into cooled pumpkin mixture.

Pour into a serving dish. Mix the rest of the cream and vanilla in a mixer to create the whipped cream and top the mousse with it. 

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
