One of the easiest desserts to make is mousse, easily tailored to the ingredients of your choice. This dulce de leche mousse incorporates silky caramel into the mix, for a sweet finish that only takes about 15 minutes of effort. The fridge does the rest.

Pre-made dulce de leche can be found in any Latin grocery, in case you don’t feel like checking on an about-to-burn pot of milk, sugar and vanilla for three hours.
