I first made this salted caramel mousse many years ago, first just as a mousse, then as a pie.   

The presentation was gorgeous – drizzled chocolate on a modern crystal serving dish, then layering in the mousse.  It was very dramatic!

I’ve modified the recipe since then to make it much easier.  

We are all busy and you can fit making this awesome dessert into a very small window of time – you know what I mean!   

The salted caramel & chocolate mousse that results is a showstopper that was an even bigger hit with my family & friends this weekend, and of course they all wanted the recipe.  

And now you have it too.  I think you will really, really love it.

Blend in the thawed whipped cream topping, 4 of the Heath bars, and chocolate chunks, gentle stirring until it is mostly blended.

Place in refrigerator for two hours

Make the puff pastry shells, according to the package, placing the pastry in muffin cups – I greased them just in case.

Bake according to your package instructions.

Let them cool, then generously fill with the caramel mousse, and you are ready to serve this gorgeous sweet treat!
