For Salted Caramel Mousse:
- ⅓cupheavy cream
- 1tspvanilla extract
- ¼tspsea salt,or more, to taste
- 4ozPhiladelphia cream cheese
- 1cuppowdered sugar
Salted Caramel Mousse:
Briefly stir together granulated sugar and water in a small saucepan, then bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue cooking for about 6 to 7 minutes, without stirring, until mixture turns dark amber in color.
Remove from heat and slowly add in cream (just start with a tablespoon or two), stirring with a wooden spoon until completely smooth.
Stir in vanilla and salt. Set aside until it reaches room temperature, or refrigerate to speed up the process.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat cream Cheese on medium-high speed for 1 minute until very smooth. Add in the room-temperature caramel and powdered sugar, and beat on medium-low speed until combined.
If the mousse is too thick, add in a tablespoon or two of heavy cream. Then increase speed to medium-high and beat for another 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Set aside.
In a trifle bowl or small glass, add a layer of the chopped Twix bars. Then use a pastry bag (or a Ziplock bag with the corner tip cut out) to pipe in a layer of caramel mouse.
Do the same with a layer of chocolate fudge sauce. Then repeat!
Finish of with a layer of whipped cream, and top with the remaining Twix bars. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 8 hours.
