This was GREAT!
I followed the recipe exactly, except I made a dozen 4 oz. cups lined with lady fingers. This recipe will make exactly a dozen, filled with mousse almost to the brim.
I got the glass dishes at the Dollar Tree store (4 4-oz. dishes per pack - 25 cents each!).
Lady fingers come in a flat of 12. They're already split lengthwise so I used one whole lady finger for each dish. I placed a half lady finger on the bottom and the other half I broke in half again (the short way) and propped each half against the half at the bottom.
The completed mix pours nicely into the dishes and settles cleanly around the lady finger. The lady fingers don't absorb the mousse and will hold up, providing an added not-too-sweet texture to the dessert.
Also, I was short on time. I put the melted-chip mixture in the freezer and stirred often, until it got to room temp. The beaten cream folded in nicely.
Once the mousse was poured into the dishes, I placed them all in the freezer again to set up. They were in for about an hour, with no harm to the mousse.
Transporting them was tricky: I have a cooler chest that is only the height of soda cans. I lined the bottom with freezer packs; placed a cookie sheet over the cold packs and placed a cut rubber mat (I had clean, anti-slip rug-mesh) on the bottom of the cookie tray. They stayed still through the drive and stayed cold for three more hours (when eaten). Everyone LOVED it!!
