Shot Glass Cream Cheese Dessert

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"I made this dessert when I wanted to make something small and sweet for dessert. All I had in the house was cream cheese and chocolate chips, and thus the Shot Glass Cream Cheese Dessert was born. It is so simple and can be whipped up in an instant. You can substitute crushed graham crackers instead of mini chocolate chips if you'd like more of a crust."

This was very tasty and easy. I added 1/2 t. Vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. Used low fat cream cheese. Used thin layer of graham crackers crumbs on bottom. Layered with mini chocolate chip...

Used little shot cups and did only the chips at the bottom, one layer of cream cheese and topped with mini m&m's. Good one serving dessert for a picnic today.
