Introduction:In case you're not on top of the latest in dessert crazes, the dessert shooter is a small, individual dessert served in shot glasses. These delicious treats are as good on the wallet as on the waistline. So, come along and learn the top 5 Dessert Shooters!

  • 01

    Strawberry Shortcake In a Glass!

    Grab a bit of pound cake, some strawberries and whipped cream and layer into a dessert shooter. Add a sprig of mint on top and, voila! Instant dessert!

  • 02

    Tiramisu Dessert Shooter

    Tiramisu lends itself very well to a dessert shooter as it's got few ingredients yet is still a rich, supple dessert just right to get rid of that sweet tooth. Get some lady fingers, soak them in Kahlua and smoosh into the bottom of your dessert shooter glass. Add in some vanilla pudding, another layer of lady fingers and top with a drizzle of chocolate. This is a dessert shooter for adults only!

  • 03

    Banana Pudding Dessert Shooter

    Yum! Add some crushed vanilla wafers to the bottom of the dessert shooter glass, layer in a slice of banana and vanilla pudding. Make one more layer of all 3 ingredients. Top with a slice of fresh banana.

  • 04

    Coconut Cream Pie Dessert Shooter

    This one is very easy! Put a layer of graham crackers in the bottom of the shot glass, add in some toasted coconut and vanilla pudding. Do two full layers and top with fresh whipped cream.

  • 05

    Chocolate Kiss Goodnight!

    Crush a few chocolate kisses and put in a layer at the bottom of the shot glass. Top with crumbled chocolate cake and a bit of raspberry liquor. Add another layer and top with fluffy whipped cream drizzled with raspberry liquor. Nighty night!


Final Thoughts

Dessert shooters are a great dessert idea for a large crowd. They're not only quick to make but they allow everyone to sample just a bit of this and a bit of that. Dessert shooters are just enough to satisfy that sweet tooth after dinner.

    I like that these desserts are pretty small, so you can indulge in something tasty without eating a huge piece of cake.

    Great idea! Must give dessert shooters a try!

  • TandLMommy28 11/12/2010 Flag This Comment

    My mouth is watering! What a neat idea, I've never heard of this before.

  • ChristinaFernando 11/12/2010 Flag This Comment

    Yum, I love dessert shooters. The strawberry shortcake shooter sounds delectable!

  • ponchomeg 11/12/2010 Flag This Comment

    I love dessert shooters. These sound yummy! A great gluten-free version is like cookies n' cream ice cream: Crush up your favorite gluten-free cookies (I like Ian's gluten-free, wheat-free chocolate chip cookie buttons) and put a layer on the bottom of the glass. Add some gluten-free, dairy-free vanilla coconut ice cream. Add another layer of cookies, another layer of ice cream, and top with a single cookie button. It looks cute and tastes yummy! :) Anyway, thanks for sharing your list and introducing a lot of people to this tasty dessert option. And congratulations for being featured on the front page! :)
