  • Why do I like it?

This was one of the first non-dairy desserts I tried and it was delicious.  The texture was smooth and creamy.  I served it at a dinner party and everyone loved it.  I would recommend this dessert when you want to make something for a smaller group of people as it doesn't yield more than 4 servings, unless you use a very small shot glass.  There are some cute plastic wine glasses available at Party City which I would recommend.  I used a small plastic tumbler, but I would try these next time!

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

The first time I made these cups, I made the vanilla topping which appears in the recipe.  It didn't come out creamy as I had hoped, so the next time I used coconut whipped cream as pictured above (click here for recipe).  I decorated the cups with raw cacao powder.  For the bottom walnut layer, I measured out 2 tablespoons of crust.  I used raw, organic cacao powder instead of cocoa powder for the health benefits.
