OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion. I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that. This is really semi-homemade but oh so good! It's rich, creamy and decadent. Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan. It was so easy to make too!
White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling
1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor
1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened
1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed
3 oz. White Chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes).
Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated.
Stir in melted white chocolate.
Fold in thawed Cool Whip
Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get too cold that it's hard to spread between cake layers.
