Lemon Mousse Jello Cups


Jello Layer

  • 2 (3 oz) packages lemon Jello + boiling and cold water called for on package
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups cold water

Lemon Mousse Layer


  1. For the Jello layer, line up 16 individual cups. (To chill glasses at an angle, you can use a cupcake pan and set a large marshmallow under each cup to ensure they don’t tip back over while they cool.)
  2. In a large bowl, add 2 packages lemon Jello. Add boiling water and stir for 2 minutes, until completely dissolved. Then stir in cold water.
  3. Transfer Jello liquid to glasses and chill until Jello is set, about 4 hours.
  4. For the Lemon Mousse Layer, in a small bowl, dissolve Jello in boiling water. Place bowl in fridge to allow Jello to cool (about 10-15 minutes) until liquid cools to the touch (you do not want it to start forming into Jello).
  5. In a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks just begin to form. Add cooled Jello mixture and beat until well combined and fluffy.
  6. Spoon topping mousse layer into glasses on top of set jello. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
  7. Top with Creme Chantilly, if desired.
