i'm IN LOVE with this mini version of one of the desserts i ended up making!
i call them "banana pudding bites" *wink*
they're TOO cute not to share with you...
don't you agree?
i created them using:
mini plastic shot glasses (found at the grocery store in a pk of 20)
mini nilla wafers
my FAVORITE banana pudding recipe: "Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding"
festive flags (i made mine using a flat toothpick, a $1 pack of ribbon from Target & adhesive)
then the layering began:
mini nilla wafer
banana pudding (fill a gallon size ziploc and snip the corner for super-easy dispensing)
a slice of banana
top off with pudding & another nilla wafer
insert festive flag...
you've arrived at CUTENESS!!
my daughter, clara, helped.
we created an assembly line and 40 of these little treats were assembled in no time.
my favorite part?
the shot glasses were SUCH the perfect size!
they were able to accomodate the mini wafers...
a spoon for easy consumption!
yes people...the dessert can be SUPER cute but if you can't eat it with a spoon?
not. so. cute anymore... *wink*
my mind is spinning with the endless possibilities of mini dessert bites...
these little shot glasses are definitely at the top of my favorite "party item" now!
KEEPING IT REAL:
I made my "festive flags" on the drive to our 4th of July celebration! shhhh!!!
although i specifically made this mini version of my favorite banana pudding recipe for the sole purpose of being able to use the "mini" version of the pepperidge farm chessman cookies i've been eyeing for awhile...(the recipe calls for the regular sized chessman cookies)
the chessmans just DIDN'T look as CUTE as the nilla wafers!
and it's all about presentation...isn't it?! *wink*
