Easter Bites {Recipe: Blueberry Mousse Filled Mini Fillo Shells}

Blueberry Mousse Fillo Bites from Dine & Dish

I always like to think of Easter as our official start of spring, but I also remember that each year, I become the biggest sucker around and buy my girls beautiful Easter dresses. You know the ones… the sleeveless dresses, bathed in beautiful pastel colors, created with light and breezy fabric.

In my typical ways, I buy the dresses, take the tags off, then remember I live in Kansas…the land of weather never being what it is supposed to be on Easter Sunday.  I don’t believe my girls have ever experienced searching for Easter eggs without their dresses hidden under heavy coats, mittens and scarves.

Even though our weather in Kansas may not be spring like by Easter, I won’t let that stop me from making spring like dishes for Easter.

These light and flaky Athens Mini Fillo Shells filled with creamy blueberry mousse are the most simple, springlike dessert… easy enough to make, you can get outside to enjoy that frigid Easter egg hunt!

  2. I just saw some in the store today and wish I’d bought them now! Such cute little guys ;)

  3. These are so pretty! And I bet they taste great too

  4. I love these shells! I can make something that FEELS super fancy just by putting them in the shells, when really it’s not that hard to do! The mousse looks delish, and I get what you mean–in New England the weather is even MORE unpredictable.

  5. These are wonderful, Kristen! The blueberry mousse is screaming spring to me!

  6. What a yummy little bite!

  7. I love those little shells, and this filling sounds wonderful! And oh, the weather on Easter. Why do all the pretty dresses have no sleeves????

  8. I happen to have a package of those in my freezer : ) They’re the perfect size!

  9. Kristen, these are so cute and I’m sure they are delicious!!! I love the sound of that blueberry mousse!!

  10. These treats looks oh so lovely and surprisingly simple to create. The perfect springtime treat even if the weather isn’t quite matching up yet :)

  11. Oh my word Kristen, these look so good! How could you go wrong with blueberries, cream and phyllo shells?!

  12. What a great way to use fillo shells! These are the perfect bite-sized desserts.

  13. Mini shells are such a time saver and the filling sounds awesome!! Can’t believe Easter is next up :)

  14. We’re in the same boat and given that Easter is in March this year, I’m pretty sure we’ll still have plenty of snow on the ground so no fluffy spring dresses here but I’d gladly take one of these adorable mousse cups!

  15. At the rate we’re going we will probably be buried under a foot of snow on Easter…but that won’t stop me from enjoying these cutie pie shells filled with blueberry heaven!

  16. Bummed we wont get spring-y Easter weather either… but these gorgeous treats might make up for it!

  17. Love these little bites! I almost always have a box of these shells in my freezer. So handy!

  18. Pretty little bites, love these! And I completely know what you mean about not being able to indulge in lighter spring Easter dresses without jackets. I thought that was normal. !!

  19. These are so cute and pretty! I love anything with blueberries!

  20. It’s Easter already… time flies so fast. Blueberries are some of my favorite foods, and I love how your blueberry mousse looks. I can’t wait to try this recipe. I’m sure my kids will enjoy eating these.
