Mother’s Day teacup dessert….

Dessert. Chocolate. Easy. Some of my three favorite things. I wanted to show you this easy Mother’s Day idea for a teacup dessert. It had chocolate, whip cream and a cookie. How much better can it get?
 This easy dessert was a coffee pudding parfait. I call it a cheater dessert because almost everything is pre-made.
The secret is to put a shortbread cookie on the bottom for a base and let the pudding sit on the cookie overnight to soften it. Cover it will plastic wrap in the fridge and then put the rest of it together the next day.
 By adding 1 TBSP of brewed espresso to the entire 16 oz. container of pre-made chocolate pudding beforehand gives it a nice coffee flavor. The cookie in the bottom soaks up any extra liquid. If you don’t like coffee, you can leave it out.
It looks pretty with a mix of vintage and new table wear.
 It gets even yummier by adding some whipped cream before serving and shaving some chocolate over the top.

I also dressed up the table a little with a small plate-side bouquet

I stuck a little coffee-flavored cookie in the side, but isn’t it funny how anything in a pretty  tea cup looks good enough to eat?

    Have you ever tried the instant chocolate Mousse mix. It’s my go to when I don’t have time to make a dessert and want to bring something that looks special. I have vintage champagne glasses throw a few raspberries and your set. Love the teacup idea!
