Voortman’s Mint Chocolate Wafer Fudge Mousse Recipe | By: Angie Armada

   If you think this is going to be one of those recipe articles where I tell you my life story in a 5 page mini series before getting to the recipe- Fear not… This isn’t that.

I will however tell you a little bit about the main ingredient , so you know what we’re workin’ with.  *Wink*

Voortmans Mint Chocolate Wafers are the star of this show. Baked with real Cocoa and made with no artificial colors or flavors, and NO high fructose  corn syrup, these wafers are unlike any wafer I have ever tried. On my cookie list, Traditional Sugar wafers are at the top. Now, I LOVE Chocolate Mint.  Im the girl grabbing two and three Andes chocolates at the restaurant , and I’m the girl  buying two and three boxes of Girl Scout Thin Mints and sticking them in my freezer when that’s in season… and after trying these wafers I may be stalking my local Publix, Walmart, Winn Dixie’s and Fresco’s from here on out.

 Ok… ok… OKAY- Let’s get to the recipe shall we?

For this beauty you will need:

-2 Packages of Voortmans Chocolate Mint Wafers. (One for this recipe and One for later because once you’re finished you will be sad if there aren’t any left for later.)

-2 cups of full fat heavy whipping cream COLD

-1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

-1 cup powdered sugar

-1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

-Whipped Cream (I used Reddi Whip extra creamy)

For the Fudge: 

  • For this part, I separated the wafers and scraped the mint chocolate into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. I did this to about 3/4 of the package. The other 1/4 I cut small and added to the rest of the chocolate. I warmed this in the microwave in 30 second increments, crushing and mixing as it melted together.
  • After about 90 seconds I set it aside and it thickened a bit to a fudgie consistency.

For the Mousse:

  • I combined all of the ingredients into a Large Pyrex Measuring cup and mixed by hand until smooth. Be careful not to OVER mix (From what I hear that can make it grainy).  I don’t have a mixer so I mixed by hand and It worked out well for me. I poured the mousse into a seperate bowl and let it set and thicken in the fridge.
  • “Pro” Tip: Put the mixing bowl in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to get really cold before working.

After you have given everything time to set and cool, It’s time to layer!

2nd: The Chocolate Mousse

3rd: Whipped Cream

Add Wafers and Mint leaves to Garnish and VOILA!

I had really enjoyed making this dessert. I also had to pry it out of my husbands hands.

It’s safe to say it was a hit in the Armada house.

I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as we did! Voortman Bakery has a ton of different Flavored wafers and cookies.

I  can’t wait to try as many as I can get my hands on!
