Shot Glass Desserts

Shot Glass Desserts

Lately the new fad in dining are these cute little shot glass desserts. I order them whenever I see them on the menu in restaurants because they're the perfect dessert amount for when you're just too full for a regular sized dessert!

Well, this month as part of the Brand Ambassador Program, I was asked to add a photo to one of their faceless recipes. I was so happy to see that there was a shot glass dessert recipe that needed to be photographed! I was all over that one! I decided that I needed to super tweak (insert 'Super Freak' song here) the recipe to make it my own...which is allowed as long as it will still look like the recipe description.

As you may know from some of my previous blog posts, I am on an Almond Joy kick...see I changed this recipe to become an 'Almond Joy' candy bar clone! It worked so well that I wished this dessert were bigger than a shot glass! A water goblet would have been the perfect size because I was licking the shot glass clean. Which only took one swipe of the tongue! But make it in shot glasses just to drive your guests crazy!
