Café Mocha Mousse Mini Fillo Cups

After making the amazing White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse fillo cups I decided to try another dessert recipe based around the mini fillo cup. I was hosting a Singer Sewing Party and wanted simple bite sized desserts to serve. I instantly went to the internet and found this awesome café mocha recipe. The coffee flavors were spot on, and the mousse was as rich and smooth as I had last remembered it to be! As suggested I topped these bite sized beauties with shredded coconut, and for good measure; mini chocolate chips. They were pure perfection (to say the least), and very easy to make. Even if you aren’t a “cook” or “baker” you can make these mini mousse cups, (and impress all of your friends and family)! 

I think I should be the new spokes person for mini fillo cups! What do you think?

    I LOVE mini fillo cups! I made them one time instead of buying the pre-made cups, and I will NEVER do it again. The combo of chocolate and coconut is one of my favorites, so I can't wait to try these!

    You host so many themed parties, it is so cool; I love reading about them.

    These look gorgeous and delicious! I know that my children would love them. They're big fans of coffee flavored snacks. I'd like to invite you to share on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
