Dessert Shots

Clockwise starting from the top: Chocolate Mousse, Salted Caramel, Apple Crumble, Strawberry Cheesecake.

When  you just can’t decide what type of dessert to serve at your party…

The fun part is finding a very basic foundation for a dessert and seeing what variations will come of it. For example, the Strawberry Cheesecake and Salted Caramel used the same cheesecake filling (recipe below).

No-Bake Cheesecake Filling
2 oz. cream cheese
500ml whipping cream
⅓ cup sugar

Beat cream cheese until soft. Add whipping cream and beat until mixture becomes thick. Add sugar and continue to beat until stiff.

Strawberry Cheesecake
No-bake Cheesecake filling
¾ cup graham crumbs
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup butter; melted
Strawberries (fresh or frozen), chopped
Plastic 2 oz. shot glasses

Combine graham crumbs, brown sugar and butter. Spoon roughly a teaspoon into the shot glasses. Sprinkle some strawberry pieces over crumbs and then top with cheesecake filling.

Salted Caramel
No-bake Cheesecake filling
Caramel topping (either store bought or homemade – for ease, I purchased caramel sauce in a squeezable container)
Coarse sea salt
Mini Rolos

Layer your ingredients starting with the caramel sauce, pinch of salt, then cheesecake filling. Repeat as necessary. Cut two Mini Rolos in half and top each shot.
