Strawberry and Marshmallow Mousse

Strawberry and Marshmallow Mousse

We enjoyed this Strawberry and Marshmallow Mousse dessert in a jar so much, I wanted to make it for dessert the following night again !

Strawberry and Marshmallow Mousse

It is such a simple, but oh so delicious, recipe and you can use just about any liqueur in the mousse - as long as it goes with strawberries of course.

I think this would be great to make in a slightly bigger jar, leaving enough space to put the lid on and take with on a picnic or to a social gathering.

The Rosewater combined with the Caster Sugar gives the Strawberries in the bottom, the most delicious taste thinkable.

It is also such a pretty dessert, don't you agree ?  The Marshmallow mixture is firm enough to pipe over if you like more of a swirly kind of thing. I was not in the mood for a piping bag and sticky marshmallows therefore I only spooned the mixture over the Strawberries and ran a spoon all around.

Strawberry And Marshmallow Mousse

4 (1/2 cup) Servings   {double or triple ingredients easily}


1 1/2 cups Fresh Strawberries, hulled and chopped
2 t Rosewater
1 TB Caster Sugar

24 White Marshmallows, regular size
2 TB English Toffee Liqueur
1/2 cup Fresh Cream  {whipping cream}
Extra Fresh Strawberries, to top
Mint Leaves, to garnish


1.) Place the Strawberries, Rosewater and Caster Sugar in a small mixing bowl - stir to mix well - set aside.
2.) Heat the Marshmallows in a large microwavable bowl - about 30 seconds - until puffed - remove from the microwave and add the Liqueur - stir until smooth - let cool.
3.) Meanwhile, whip the Cream until stiff peaks form - mix in a little of the whipped Cream into the Marshmallow mixture and then fold in all the Marshmallow into the remaining whipped Cream.
4.) Scoop the chopped Strawberries into 4 serving jars/glasses or bowls - spoon or pipe over the Marshmallow mixture.
5.) Top with the extra Strawberries and garnish with a Mint leaf.

Keep chilled until ready to serve.

  10. Thank you Linda!! This is such a yummy looking treat that will certainly come in handy on a nice, warm sunny afternoon.

  11. Will the marshmallow/whipped cream topping be stable at room temperature? I need a topping for mini-pecan pies that will remain stable on a buffet table for two hours.

    1. I usually serve these desserts straight from the refrigerator, but have once had them out on the table for a little over an hour and the marshmallow stayed firm, although I would not advise having it out on extremely hot days
