Cappuccino Cups

This is a recipe I’ve had for a long time and just recently re-visited. I checked with the friend who I thought I had the recipe from, but she could not remember it. This is a great recipe 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.

Ingredients:

12 chocolate wafer cookies
2 Tbsp instant coffee granules
1/4 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups cream (half & half)
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 cups cool whip
chocolate shavings


Method:

  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.

  16. For Chocolate shavings I use a potato peeler and peel off shavings of a semi sweet square of baking chocolate... or any hard chocolate.
