For the base:
- 200 gr. of Maria cookies
- 100 gr. of butter
For the mousse:
- 500 gr. of whipping cream
- 460 gr. of pink clouds (or the color of your choice, these will give the personal touch to the final decoration)
- 100 gr. milk
- 400 gr. natural orange juice
For the strawberry and cloud topping
- 100 gr. strawberries
- 125 gr. of marshmallows
- 1 glass and a half of water
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
Pink clouds (or the color of your choice).
Conguitos (or any other type of chocolate of your choice)
Jelly beans (freely chosen to decorate)
For the base:
Heat a little butter in the microwave, once it is more liquid, mix it with the cookies and crush it. Pour the mixture into a springform pan and flatten it until it is as uniform and compact as possible. Reserve the base in the refrigerator.
For the mousse:
Squeeze the oranges, strain and reserve the juice. Whip the cream, well chilled, and also reserve in the refrigerator. In a saucepan, pour the milk and the clouds and heat over low heat until completely melted and there are no lumps. Add the orange juice until the mixture is homogeneous and remove from the heat so that it cools while tempering. Once the mixture is cool, add the whipped cream and mix with a silicone utensil, with slow movements and in a circle so that the mixture does not fall down. Pour our mousse that we had reserved with the base and let it cool for about 4 hours.
For the strawberry and cloud topping:
We put in a saucepan the strawberries, cut into very small pieces, add water and 3 tablespoons of sugar. We put over low heat for about 30 minutes. Once hot, strain it and put it back on the fire and add the clouds, stir continuously until everything is well melted and mixed. Let it cool. Once cooled, we cover the cake and leave, again, to cool for another 4 hours.
Once the cake has cooled, and the time indicated in the recipe has elapsed, we can give free rein to our imagination. It is time to create and improvise in the most fun way possible.
We have decorated our recipe with pink marshmallows and chocolate conguitos, but we can also decorate it with any of the infinite combinations of jelly beans and chocolate that we can find buying our candies online at an incredible price. So, in addition to having a delicious, sweet and special dessert, it will be very easy and economical.
Now that I am savoring this delicious mousse cake of clouds and chocolate without oven, it comes to mind the candy that I have eaten throughout my life. The sweets make my memory go back to those summer days when we used to go to my grandmother’s village to spend our vacations there. The road to that place was horrendous back then and my mother, so that we wouldn’t throw out every last bit of porridge during the trip, would buy us a lot of sweets that we would eat little by little along the way, while we sang very old songs, listened to stories on the radio-cassette, and tried to make the three-hour trip go by as quickly as possible.
