Strawberry and Marshmallow Mousse is Rosewater infused Strawberry topped with a Liqueur based Marshmallow topping, all in a jar ~ simple, but this Summer’s most decadent dessert !
We enjoyed this Strawberry and Marshmallow Mousse dessert in a jar so much, I wanted to make it for dessert the following night again !
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.
