How to make No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Mousse:
In a medium saucepan, combine pumpkin purée, heavy cream, sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and nutmeg. Bring everything to a low simmer and remove from the heat. Cool the mixture completely.
If you want to add a splash of rum, this is the time you can add one to two tablespoons of rum and whisk it into the mixture.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks, about three to five minutes. Reserve eight tablespoons of cream for the topping.

Fold cooled pumpkin cream mixture into beaten cream. Distribute the mousse among serving glasses. Using a pastry bag fitted with a flower decorating tip, pipe the reserved cream into each glass. Sprinkle with some shaved chocolate and serve!
See how easy it is? No need for fancy ingredients or turning the oven on. Just a few steps produce such a simple and delicious fall dessert that feels light and absolutely delicious!
This quick Pumpkin Spice Mousse will keep for a few days in a fridge. If you plan to serve it for Thanksgiving or Christmas, make it the day before. The fall flavors in this 15-minute dessert will meld and marry overnight which will result in an even more delicious taste.
