No bake mini white chocolate mousse pies are terrific for Christmas! Top them with red and green holiday chocolate chips! Last week I mentioned that Ryan was preparing for his pre-lim exam. For the exam, he had to give an oral presentation about his past research to a handful of chemistry professors while they grilled him with questions. They also determine if his purposed future research plans are good enough to allow him to continue on with his program. Well, great news – he passed and I’m so proud of him!! I knew he was going to pass, but it feels extremely great now that the pressure is off, and I wasn’t even the one having to do everything for it!

Although Ryan’s pre-lim is over, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is just beginning for us, do things ever slow down?! We have Ryan’s birthday and a christmas party this week, caroling week next, gifts to wrap and then we’re making the long drive back home to be with our families for Christmas.

Between everything that is going on, who has time to be in the kitchen making 40 candy cane oreo balls? Oh yeah, that was me :) While I adore those candy cane oreo balls and I really hope you get a chance to make them, a more practical and time friendly holiday recipe are these no bake mini white chocolate mousse pies!

This recipe will take 45 minutes to make, and you know what? 30 of those minutes are spent waiting for the white chocolate mousse to set in the fridge, which means you could take a nap, prep another recipe, or watch half an episode of Dance Moms :)

No bake mini white chocolate mousse pies are terrific for Christmas! Top them with red and green holiday chocolate chips! I bought Nestle Toll House Limited Edition Holiday Morsels from Walmart to add some extra holiday cheer to this recipe, and the chips really stand out against the white chocolate mousse! I really love Nestle’s holiday chocolate chips, they make any recipe feel more christmasy.

They are only available for a limited time, so pick some up the next time you’re at the store! While you’re at it, add some Edy’s Limited Edition Peppermint Wonderland Light Ice Cream to your cart. They are real peppermint pieces in the ice cream, and if you pair the ice cream with these no bake pies, you can scoop, eat, and be merry all season long!

      I love’em!

  14. Peter — December 12, 2014 at 10:38 am

    Beth I have a question. They make the mini shells in packs of 6 I haven’t found any that contain 8. Unless you want to help me out and tell me that brand you got .

    • Beth @ The First Year — December 13, 2014 at 9:09 am

      Hi Peter, yep they do come in packs of 6, you’d have to buy 2 packs in order to get 8. You can use the other 4 in another recipe :)

  15. Danielle — December 15, 2014 at 10:54 pm

    I love an easy dessert. These would be perfect for a dinner party! #client

    • Beth @ The First Year — December 16, 2014 at 9:54 am

      I definitely agree, easy and you can double it to feed a crowd!

  16. Carolyn — December 20, 2014 at 8:30 am

    Congrats to Ryan! With these treats, you have a lovely way to celebrate.

    • Beth @ The First Year — December 21, 2014 at 6:41 am

      Thank you Carolyn!

  17. Jessica — December 22, 2014 at 9:44 am

    Hey, these look amazing. Just curious if you really require to serve them immediately ? If I made them christmas morning and were to serve them christmas evening would they still be ok?

    • Beth @ The First Year — December 22, 2014 at 4:49 pm

      Hi Jessica! I would not put the chocolate chips on until you serve them! Go ahead and make up the filling, you could store that separately and add the filling to the crusts before serving, then add the chocolate chips!
