Dessert shooters, if you're unfamiliar with the term, are little desserts served in very small glasses, sometime even shot glasses. There are many good reasons to top off a dinner party with these small sweet treats and the top five reasons for serving dessert shooters are documented below.
Just by the fact that dessert shooters are small, your guests can still get a taste of something delicious yet stick pretty close to any diet plan. Just don't eat two or three (or seven) and blow this benefit of dessert shooters.
You can also make delicious low calorie dessert shooters by using sugar free jello and Cool Whip in a creative fashion. Just create pretty layers of these two ingredients and sprinkle the top with just a bit of graham cracker crumbs to add a bit more interest and a little sweetness to your delicious mini dessert.
People sitting around your dinner table all will, of course, have differing likes and dislikes. Serving a few different dessert shooters will allow everyone to pick their favorite from the tray.

You can easily use similar ingredients (like one type of cookie) and mix and match other ingredients (ice cream or puddings for example) and make up your own mini desserts. Just top each with a bit of whipped cream and some sort of garnish to make your dessert shooters attractive.
I can usually make ten dessert shooters in about as many minutes. They're that easy to make and serve. I love to get really creative and put things together in the mini dessert glasses. One key though is to not add in too many ingredients as the dessert is so small it should be really uncomplicated.
As mentioned above, the presentation of dessert shooters in their little shot glasses is just pleasing to everyone. Serve them on that old silver tray gathering tarnish in your cabinet for a pretty presentation. Or center the dessert shooter on individual china dishes and add a few garnishes to the plate.
Dessert shooters go great with a good cup of coffee too!
Dessert shooters, just by their teeny size, will not leave your dining guests stuffed to the gills after that filling dinner you just mixed up - unless, of course they eat five different ones. And, if your guests prefer, they can cut calories and get variety of mini sweet tastes in just by sharing their dessert shooters.
Dessert shooters are my new favorite dessert. You'll be amazed at how many people love these things. Your dinner guests will think you're the best cook in the land if you present a tray full of mini desserts. And, shhhh....they don't need to know how easy they are to make.
