Godiva Chocolate Chunky Monkey Mousse

This was a huge hit at our family reunion
Godiva Chocolate Chunky Monkey Mousse, is the name my niece Alicia gave this dessert at our reunion that day. It had no name and I waited to see who would come up with a name, this was perfect! Thanks Alicia!



Chocolate mousse flavored pudding



An easy layered dessert. Cookies, banana's, miniature chips and a light fluffy chocolate filling.




6 to 8 bananas, sliced

1 box vanilla wafer cookies

2 3/4 cups milk

2 boxes instant chocolate pudding

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese softened

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (12-ounce) container chocolate flavored whipped topping thawed

miniature chocolate chips

Godiva Chocolate Liqueur

Directions line the bottom trifle bowl with half the cookies and layer bananas on top sprinkle with chocolate chips. In another bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Sprinkle each layer with Godiva liqueur over the cookies to your liking, (I use one shot to each layer) Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas, then add another layer of cookies, chocolate chips, banana's and whipped mixture, cover with the remaining cookies and lots of miniature chocolate chips.. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Interesting idea and I agree, a fun name. We never made things like this for any family reunion I've been too -- you all take your reunions seriously.

Bananas, chocolate, beautiful! Some of my favorite ingredients, no doubt :) Loved stumbling across your blog... seems as if we have many of the same interests: traveling, sweets, and burning them off!! Keep up the great work!
