Cappuccino Cups

This is a great dessert for a large group because you can make it ahead and have no fuss, but a nice presentation at the end. It’s also convenient to have exact servings and only pull out the number you need. This amount of filling also fits into one chocolate graham wafer pie crust.

  • 12 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups cream (half & half)
  • 1 package instant vanilla pudding
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups cool whip
  • chocolate shavings
  1. Put wafers in bottoms of muffin tins. I use Mr. Christie’s Chocolate Wafers and put them into the extra large sized muffin tins. You don’t have to use liners, but you can. It adds a rippled effect, but you have to remove the paper as soon as you take them out of the freezer, before sprinkling with chocolate shavings.
  2. Dissolve coffee in water; set aside.
  3. Beat together cream, pudding and cinnamon, about 2 min. Add cool whip and coffee, beating to mix well.
  4. Pour into muffin tins. Freeze.
  5. Remove from muffin tins onto serving plates. Decorate with chocolate shavings. Serve frozen.
