"This is a fast easy treat around the holidays. Pour into chocolate shells purchased at any kitchen store for an elegant touch or with graham crackers for dipping. You can also heat ingredients in the microwave on high for 30 second intervals if you are short on time."

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Stir in the marshmallows, milk, and pumpkin. Stir frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  2. Combine 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar and 1 cup heavy cream in a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into cooled pumpkin mixture. Pour mousse into ramekins or chocolate shells. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

This was great ~ like pumpkin pie whipped cream! For the milk I used 1/2 half n half and 1/2 skim because I did not have whole milk. To get the heavy cream to whip nicely I put the beaters and t...

This is fabulous!! I serve it with vanilla pudding (1:1 ratio) and top with crushed ginger snaps. AMAZING!!! A new family Thanksgiving tradition!

This isn't something I'd make often, but I did enjoy it and it was a change of pace. I was whisking the pumpkin mixture every 5 min or so while it was cooling, but it did develop some small lum...

I had exactly a half cup of pumpkin left over from making muffins this morning--this recipe was PERFECT. Because I do not keep heavy cream on hand, I did use cold evaporated milk instead. I made...
