Gluten Free Ginger Snap Crusted Chocolate Mousse Tarts
Gluten free is looking good. Real good. If you’re looking for an easy peasy dessert you’ve found it. Chocolate mousse is quick and easy and honestly you can eat it by itself if you don’t want to take the extra step and make the crust. I’m not going to lie and say I haven’t. I kinda look forward to keeping the bowl, beaters and spatula to myself. What can I say, you know I have a wicked sweet tooth. I could tell you it’s quality control. Yeah, on second thought let’s go with that.
We used gluten free ginger snap cookies to make our crust (hence why the recipe is indeed gluten free). We went old school, threw them into a zip top bag and bashed the bazooky out of them with a mallet. It’s a stress reliever and a great arm workout not to mention you just throw the bag away when you’re done. If you’re feeling particularly stress free feel free to use your food processor.
These little gluten free goodies happen to get better the longer they sit in the fridge so making them the night before is optional but not required. We’ve used mini tart pans making a perfect individual serving size but you can absolutely use a a single large tart pan. Options you know we love them. A graham cracker crust would be great too, you know if you can’t find ginger snaps. More options. Who loves ya?
