Orange Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Parfaits

Debbie Reid


This quick and easy dessert has my favorite flavors in it... chocolate, orange, and cheesecake. And just the right size for just me and my hubby. It is a snap to put together, but delicious enough for any gathering. Can easily double, triple, etc. the recipe to serve more than two.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a decadent, cool and creamy dessert. The rich mousse is really the star of this parfait. It has a hint of orange flavor mixed with the cheesecake and whips up light and airy. The fudge and crushed cookies are perfect compliments to this mousse. This is fancy enough for a special occasion, but easy enough to serve every day. This is very rich... you could easily make 4 smaller parfaits with this recipe (just crush a few extra cookies).


Orange Milano cookies (I used Pepperidge Farm)
1 3/4 c
whipping cream
1/4 c
orange juice
1 box
instant cheesecake pudding and pie filling; 3.4 ounce
2 Tbsp
plus 2 teaspoons hot fudge sauce, room temperature


1Place cookies into a small resealable plastic bag. Using a mallet or rolling pin, crush cookies; set aside.
2In a large chilled bowl, place the whipping cream, orange juice and cheesecake pudding and pie filling. Using a hand mixer, beat slowly until combined, about 30 seconds.
3Increase speed to high and beat until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute to 1 1/2 minutes. Scraping bowl occasionally.
4Using 2 (8-ounce) martini glasses (or parfait glasses), begin layering the parfaits. Place about 1/2 tablespoon of the crushed cookies into the bottom of the glasses.
5Top with 1 teaspoon fudge sauce.
6Top with 1/3 cup cheesecake mixture.
7Then 1 tablespoon crushed cookies.
8Next, 1 tablespoon of the fudge.
9Add 2/3 cup cheesecake mixture, then remaining crushed cookies.
10Can be eaten immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
