Jenni's notes for this recipe:
This recipe is from the Glorious Treats blog (www.glorioustreats.blogspot.com). It was just so cute, I had to share it -- I haven't made it yet, but will be making it for my daughter's birthday party in October.

Directions

1
Beat cream cheese with electric mixer until fully smooth. Continue to beat, and slowly add in powdered sugar, then milk (or cream). Add vanilla. Continue mixing about 1 minute on medium to medium/high speed. Fold cool whip into mixture until fully combined, but be careful not to overmix, or it could become too thin.
2
Divide the mixture into 3 equal portions in separate bowls. Color 1 orange (either with orange coloring, or a mixture of red & yellow), color another yellow, leave the remaining mixture white.
3
One color at a time, starting with yellow, scoop mixture into a piping bag (or a ziploc bag with a small corner clipped), and squeeze a layer of the cheesecake mousse into small dessert dishes of your choice (the picture shown is in 5 oz juice glasses). Repeat with orange, and then white mousse.
4
Refrigerate 30 minutes (or up to 1 day) before serving. Garnish with candy corn before serving if desired.
5
Recipe yields 4 moderate servings, or 6-8 mini servings.

OMG...these would look SOOO cute in mini dessert/cordial glasses I just bought(from pier 1)...my new thing is mini desserts lol. Thank you for sharing :o)

You're welcome! I love that they're mini, too. Since I'm going to have them at a birthday party that will already have cake and other goodies, I like that they're just small! You should check out the www.glorioustreats.blogspot.com site. There's lots of mini desserts right now that are fall/halloween inspired. I just posted this one because I'm going to be making it soon.
