[MOL] Soothing cool meals...pg.3 end....

By Laurie Burrows Grad

Instant Chocolate Mousse
Serves 6

This is a super-fast mousse to prepare on a moment's notice. Keep a bag of chocolate chips on hand at all times and you're ready to go.

3/4 cup milk (you can use 1% or 2% milk as well)
1 6-ounce package semisweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
3 tablespoons very strong, hot coffee
2 tablespoons coffee liqueur (optional)
Garnish: sweetened whipped cream or crFme fraiche

1. Scald the milk by heating it in a small pot until bubbles just begin to form around the edges of the pan.
2. Place the remaining ingredients in the container of a blender or food processor and process until very smooth.
3. Pour into six ramekins or one large 1 +-quart dish, and chill for four to six hours or overnight.
4. Serve the mousse chilled with sweetened whipped cream or crFme fraiche.

Oreo Cookie Freakout

Serves 3-4

This is a dish I created in the early 1980s and it's still a family favorite. The best part about it is that an Oreo Cookie Freakout can be made on the spur of the moment. Keep gobs of vanilla ice cream and lots of Oreo cookies on hand just in case.

5 Oreo cookies
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened for about three to four minutes at room temperature

1. In a food processor or blender, crush the cookies.
2. Add the ice cream in scoops and process until smooth. Pour into dishes or goblets and serve immediately.

The possible combinations are endless. Try gingersnaps and vanilla ice cream, Oreos and coffee ice cream, oatmeal cookies and chocolate ice cream, or peanut butter cookies and chocolate ice cream.

Cook Notes:
Use regular Oreos (or Hydrox cookies), not the "double-stuffed” ones. This dish is best prepared just before eating. If using a blender rather than a food processor, it may be necessary to prepare the Freakout in two batches.
