Pumpkin Mousse Ingredients:
Rum Whipped Cream Ingredients:
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 Tbsp powered sugar
- 1 tsp rum dark or golden, or vanilla extract
How to Make Easy Pumpkin Mousse:
In a small saucepan, combine 2 packets gelatin with 1 cup milk. Place over medium heat and whisk continually until mixture just begins to steam and gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and cool 15 min (Do NOT boil).
In the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed, combine 1 cup sugar, 16 oz sour cream, 15 oz pumpkin puree, 1 tsp pumpkin spice, and mix until blended. Add 16 oz of whipped topping and mix on med-low speed until blended, scraping down the bowl as needed.
With mixer on, slowly drizzle in the warm milk mixture and once fully incorporated, immediately divide between your serving cups. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight for the mousse to set.
To Make the Rum Whipped Cream:
Using an electric mixer, beat together 1 cup heavy cream with 2 Tbsp powdered sugar on high speed about 2 minutes or until thick and whipped. Add 1 tsp rum and beat just to incorporate. Do not over-beat.** Pipe or dollop whipped cream just before serving and dust with cinnamon to garnish.
**Make whipped cream just before serving for best flavor.
