“One of my favorite recipes from Mom! Super simple chocolate filling scooped into pastry cups, topped with whipped cream and served chilled. Truly a dessert for ANYONE at ANY AGE! (Variations included)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pastry cups according to package directions. Remove from pan and let cool.
  2. When cooled, remove circular "tops" with a fork and save. Remove enough "top" so that 3/4 of the cup is hollow.
  3. Spoon chocolate pudding into the cup just until it's level with the rim.
  4. Place in fridge loosely covered until serving.
  5. Serve with a scoop of whipped topping on top.
  6. **This is just as good prepared with lowfat/fat free products.
  7. **For a fruit cup, mix 1 block cream cheese, with 1/2 cup whipped topping and powdered sugar to taste. Place two tablespoons mixture into cup, then top with sliced fresh fruit of your choice. Melt 1/4 cup of your favorite jam and drizzle entire cup with melted jam.
  8. **For the chef only: since you made them, you get to eat the best part -- the "tops"! Use them to scoop up the extra pudding!
