Chocolate Mousse Filled Tulip Cookies

Servings: Makes 24 cookies
If you're having a Valentine's Day party or get-together, these little chocolate mousse filled cookies are a perfect treat to serve. Only a few ingredients, and using wonton wrappers for the tulip cookie shells makes them a fun and easy little dessert to make. Kids will certainly enjoy these too.

24 wonton wrappers (usually found in the refrigerated section of the produce section of your supermarket)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
3 tablespoons sugar, divided

Easy Chocolate Mousse (see recipe below)

1. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).

2. Place individual wonton wrappers on wax paper; brush one side with butter. Sprinkle each wrapper evenly with scant 1/2 teaspoonful sugar; press each wrapper, sugared side up, into ungreased small muffin cups (1-3/4 inches in diameter) to form flower shape.

3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or just until crisp and golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Pipe or spoon Easy Chocolate Mousse into center of each "tulip" cup. Cover and refrigerate. Refrigerate any leftover cookies.
