Every mom has been in this predicament: You have no time to cruise through cookbooks or run to the bakery, but you need to whip up a delicious sweet treat for impromptu party guests. If you are planning a simple Valentine's Day celebration with your family or your children's friends, or your child's Valentine drops by with his or her parents, consider these hassle free "cuppycakes."
I used items I had in the fridge to make these sweet pudding sliders — all you need is the mini cups, pudding and whipped cream. I garnished with sprinkles of hot chocolate for a polished look that hides the fact that these treats only took me five minutes to prepare!
To check out my guide to making these yourself,
- 1. Chocolate Pudding (4 containers makes about 12 cuppycakes. 8 makes 24)
- 2. Whipped cream
- 3. Optional: Chocolate powder, hot chocolate or chopped chocolate pieces (to use as dressing on top)
- 4. Mini "jelloshot" paper cups
Put about four spoonfuls of chocolate pudding into mini paper cups, top off with a swirl of whipped cream and chocolate dust or your decoration of choice.
