Vanilla Praline Mousse with Raspberries

Praline is a mixture of pecans, sugar, and butter and, in this praline mousse recipe, the praline mixture is sprinkled over the top for a crunchy topping. The mousse itself is made with vanilla pudding, raspberries, and spices and this is a really flavorful mousse, blending fruit, nuts, and cream for a rich yet fruity dessert.

You could use walnuts instead of pecans, if you prefer them, but then it would not technically be a praline mousse any more. Sometimes almonds are used to make praline so you could try a mixture of almonds and pecans if you want to. Use either fresh or thawed raspberries in this vanilla praline mousse recipe. The fruitiness of the raspberries is so good with the other flavors in this dessert. They also add a splash of color.

This is a delicious gelatin recipe and one that is very easy to make. You can double up on the pecan mixture if you like, since this nutty topping is good sprinkled over all kinds of desserts, including ice cream, fresh fruit or other kinds of mousse.
