For my roommate’s birthday I made these mini desserts. We had just moved to our new apartment in Dallas, so I was low on time and ingredients. I made this spread using many of same ingredients in multiple desserts.
The Menu –
– Mini ‘Nilla Wafer Sandwiches: These were a total experiment, but ended up tasting like little chocolate dipped macaroons, and were the first to go! I put a very tiny dollop of banana pudding on one wafer, layered a slice of fresh banana, then closed the sandwich with another wafer. I dipped half of the mini sandwich in chocolate, half of the batch in white and half in dark chocolate. Then, I refrigerated the sandwiches over night, and I think this was the key! The sandwiches were soft, but not soggy at all.
– Mini Pudding Cups: Chocolate and Vanilla layers topped with a fresh raspberry, Banana pudding layered with crushed ‘Nilla wafers and topped with a slice of fresh banana and whipped cream
– Mini Cinnamon Twists: Simple pastry dough, twisted and brushed with butter flavored with cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg
– Red Velvet Cake Balls, dipped in white and dark chocolate
