These amounts produce three to four Oreo mousse portions, depending on the size of the individual containers you use. If you do not have sheets of jelly you can substitute this with two tablespoons of powdered gelatin. We recommend that you put the whipping cream in the refrigerator before using it in this recipe.
The first thing we need to do to make Oreo mousse is pour the milk in a saucepan and heat it on a low heat, it must not reach boiling point. While heating hydrate the jelly sheets. To do this put some cold water in a glass or other container and add a sheet of jelly and leave it to soak for 5 minutes. After this time has passed you will see that it becomes inflated and has softened, add it to the milk and stir to dissolve. Do the same with the other jelly sheets.
When you have dissolved the jelly sheets in the milk remove from the heat and let it cool to a warm temperature, as opposed to hot. While the mix is cooling crush the Oreo cookies. You can do this manually with a mortar or pulverize them with a food processor or blender. When ready put them aside for later.
The next step in the Oreo mousse recipe is to whip the cream. To do this you can use an whisk or blender. When the cream has begun to assemble but is not quite ready slowly add the sugar, gradually stirring it in. Then, if the milk is warm, add the milk mix to the cream carefully and, of course, always beating it together. If you do not want the result to be a very sweet dessert you can reduce the amount of sugar.
It is advisable that the milk should not be too hot at the time of mixing it with the cream in order to prevent the latter from becoming liquid. You will know that the cream is fully whipped as, when withdrawing the whisk rods, peaks form. If you used a blender you will know it is ready as, when you turn the container, the contents will not pour out. Once ready add the cookie crumbs and mix these with a spatula or spoon through a gentle stirring motion.
Now, distribute it into individual moulds and put it in the fridge for an hour or two so to serve it cold and... ready! As you can see, this is a very simple and quick recipe. If you want, you can decorate the Oreo mousse by sprinkling over it some biscuit powder or by placing a whole cookie. If you like Oreo recipes do not miss out on the Oreo cake and Oreo marquise.
