This is a perfect dessert for those situations when kids are searching all cupboards with huge eyes full of disappointment: "Mom, there is nothing sweet to eat..."
You will need:
1 package of frozen, ready to bake mini pie shells - I think there is about 50 of them in the package and you could get them at any grocery store
1 can of sweetened condensed milk - needs to be caramelized in advance - place a can in a large pot of water and boil for 2 hours. Tip: you could do a few cans at a time and then store them for up to 6 month. Just pick the cans that need a can-opener, those with a little ring on top might explode during boiling
500 gr (1 package) of either 35% whipping cream or 30% sour cream
1 cup melted chocolate (optional)
Various berries and nuts for garnish
Step 1: bake mini pie shells (instructions on the package) usually 200C for 10 minutes and let cool
Step 2: using mixer, beat whipping cream or sour cream with caramelized condensed milk (make sure all ingredients are cold) - about 10 minutes, or until the filling is steady
Step: 3 fill the shells. Confectioner's bag will make it faster, but spoon is fine too
Step 4: Decorate: pipe melted chocolate, use nuts, berries, sprinkles, shredded coconut - whatever your heart desires
Step: 5 - Enjoy!
I used piped chocolate, frozen raspberries and toasted almonds
And close up with raspberries
