Now that we have been in our house for about 2 months, it was time to get to know the neighbors. We have met them briefly in passing but I thought it would be nice to actually go over and introduce ourselves. I have heard several stories of people who do not get along with their neighbors and all of the horrors that follow. Luckily, ours seemed pretty friendly.
I wanted to make a sweet treat to bring over as we met our neighbors. A friend of mine mentioned how she likes chocolate pudding as an easy and somewhat “light” way to get your chocolate fix. This was sort of stuck in my head when I was thinking of dessert ideas. These mini tarts fit exactly what I needed : easy, tasty, and perfect for the warm weather!
- Chocolate pudding mix and low-fat milk
- Fresh fruit (I used strawberries and blueberries)
- Mini pie tarts (can be purchased frozen or you can make your own)
- Make chocolate pudding as described on the box, I used low-fat milk. Apparently you cannot use soy or other substitute since the pudding will not form properly.
- I bought the frozen mini tarts (usually found with other frozen desserts at the store). Again, I needed something quick. You bake them from 10 minutes and they are all set for filling.
- Fill with the chocolate pudding and top with fruit (I sliced the strawberries so they would fit).
- Put in the refrigerator for 3 hours (or more) and they are ready to go!
Easy, I know! But also yummy! Eric topped his with a little powdered sugar. They are the perfect size for a few bites of dessert without overdoing it!
