Strawberry Mousse

I've been on a kick of making a fancy looking dessert or treat to go with dinner. It makes us all feel extra fancy. (Maybe I've been reading too much Fancy Nancy)
Anyway, this one is easy and fun, and my kids and hubby all felt extra special!

Strawberry Mousse

Strawberries for dipping
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
3 TBS white chocolate chips, melted

1 cup frozen strawberries, thawed

2 Tbsp powdered sugar
2 Tbsp strawberry jam (homemade freezer jam is THE BEST)
1 pkg whipped topping mix (I used the Dream Whip for this)
1/3 cup milk
3 drops red food coloring
Additional whipped topping

Line a pan with wax paper. Pat fresh strawberries dry with paper towel. Dip each strawberry halfway into melted chocolate. Place on wax paper. Drizzle with melted white chips. Refrigerate.
Meanwhile, in bowl, mash together frozen strawberries, sugar, and jam. Set aside. On medium-high speed, beat topping mix with milk until stiff peaks form. Add strawberry mixture; beat 1 minute. Stir in food coloring.
Divide mixture among dessert glasses. Refrigerate 3 or more hours.
Before serving, garnish with additional whipped topping and chocolate dipped strawberries.
