"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."

I made this for a housewarming party the other night and it was a HUGE success. I've never made mousse with marshmallows before and I was a bit skeptical at first, but it was super easy to make and the texture was perfect. I'm adding this to my Thanksgiving menu from now on.

I THINK THIS RECIPE IS GOOD,I HAD TO USE COOL WHIP SO IT MIGHT HAVE MADE THE DIFFERENCE W/ THE OUTCOME BECAUSE THE SPICE WAS A TINY BIT OVERPOWERING,WILL TRY AGAIN USING HEAVY CREAM,THANKS.
