I have a sweet tooth, there, I said it :-) Yes, I know you are all doing your fake surprise face right now. Lately though, I've been trying to eat better and that doesn't always include the full serving of dessert that I'd like to be eating. Enter the dessert shot.
This dessert is a combination of two ideas....1) Dessert in a shot glass and 2) Sex in a pan dessert. If you haven't heard of the latter, google it ... but probably not at work just in case you get some unsavoury results..hehe.
So what's in the glass you ask? First, a layer of crumbled Oreo cookies, then a cream cheese mixture, then some whipped cream, chocolate pudding, more whipped cream, and a sprinkling of Oreo cookies just for fun. These puppies come in around 150 calories per shot. YAY!
Ingredients (makes 8):
9 Oreo cookies
Whipped Cream Layer:
1 Cup Whipping cream
2 Tbsp icing sugar
1 pkt whip it by Dr. Oetker (optional)
--divide this in two
Cream Cheese Layer:
1/2 package cream cheese (room temperature)
2 Tbsp sour cream
1/4 cup grandulated Splenda (or sugar if you prefer)
+ 1/2 of the whipped cream prepared above
Jell-o sugar-free pudding prepared as directed
Instructions:Step 1: Prepare the whipped cream
Make sure your whipping cream is very cold. Add whip it, and sugar and whip until stiff peaks. Set aside.
Step 2: The cream cheese layer
In the bowl of your stand mixer, add the cream cheese and sour cream. Whip until smooth. Add your splenda (or sugar) and mix again. Then gently fold in half of the whipped cream you prepared above.
Step 3: The Oreo layer
Place your Oreos in a food processor and grind until crumbly. Doesn't have to be perfect.
Step 4: Assemble
Start with your Oreos, press it into the bottom of your shot glasses. Next add a thin layer of cream cheese (it's fairly tart so you don't have to add too much). Add a thin layer of whipped cream followed by some chocolate pudding. Top it off with a little more whipped cream and some crumbled Oreos for flair.
Keep these in the fridge. These can easily be made the day or two before a party.
