Maria Cookie Dessert Recipe

This Maria Cookie Dessert Recipe is a delicious, super easy and quick dessert. It’s a chocolate mousse over layered Maria cookies.


– 2 packages of Maria cookies

– 1 can of table cream

– 1 pint of whipping cream

– 1 cup of milk

– 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract ( you will use 1 teaspoon in 2 different parts of the recipe)

– 8 tablespoons of sifted cocoa powder

– 12 tablespoons of sugar

– Chocolate sprinkles for decoration


Lets start pouring the whipping cream into the KitchenAid Mixer bowl and with the whisk attachment on, start your mixer on speed 8.

Once it starts forming waves, turn off your mixer, we don’t want a thick whipped cream, we just want to make the whipped cream a little fluffy and get some volume. Once it gets to that stage turn off your mixer. (See the photo bellow for the perfect texture)

With a spatula, you will fold in the rest of the ingredients. Let’s start with the table cream, then sugar, cocoa powder and  1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Once all combined, it’s time to layer the cookies on a pan.

Pour the milk into a bowl and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Dip the Maria cookie really quickly on both sides into the milk and layer it side by side covering the entire bottom of the pan.

Pour 1/3 of the chocolate mousse over and spread it over the cookies. You will repeat the same process twice more. The layering will be, COOKIE->MOUSSE – COOKIE-> MOUSE – COOKIE->MOUSSE.

Cover the last layer of chocolate mousse with chocolate sprinkles, cover your dessert and put it in the fridge for a couple hours.

If you are in a hurry, just make sure you whip the mousse a little stiffer and you can serve the dessert right away.

Enjoy it 🙂
