Where did I find it?
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!
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
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.
