Triple Chocolate Terrarium Dessert | By using two everyday items you can dress up a simple dessert and make it look like a terrarium! It’s not just about the decor with this dessert it’s also about the flavor! With two kinds of chocolate cake, and a simple chocolate mousse this dessert is bound to create some buzz at your next dinner party. I plan on making this fun dessert for my next garden themed party!
HERE’S HOW I CREATED THIS FUN PARTY DESSERT!
This all started with soda bottles. I like either a 16.9 ounce Pepsi or Dr Pepper bottle. Some states carry the thin narrow Dr Pepper bottles and some don’t so you may want to stick with a Pepsi bottle. Just make sure it is straight unlike the Coke bottle that has curves. So…..you will need a 16.9 ounce bottle and a 12 ounce bottle for each dessert.
Remove the labels. I used Goo Gone and a razer blade. Wash off the Goo Gone with soap and water.
Cute right where the bottle begins to curve up at the top with a utility knife.
Wash out the bottle and set aside to dry.
For the small bottle…cut an inch and a half from the bottom to create a cap or lid for the terrarium.
THE CHOCOLATE LAYERS!
Add a layer of chocolate cookie chunks. I crushed up Oreo Chocolate Thins.
Two thin chocolate sponge cake disks cut with a 2 1/4-inch round.
Two red velvet sponge cake disks cut with a 2 1/4-inch round. Use something to press the cake down into the mousse. I used the end of my rolling pen.
Add another layer of the chocolate mousse.
Sprinkle on crushed Teddy Grahams.
Add a sprig of an artificial plant and some chocolate rocks.
Enjoy and have a fabulous party!
