One of the hardest things about weight loss diets is giving up sweets and desserts. It’s hard not to feel deprived when everyone is sitting around noshing on cheesecake and your plate is empty. These delicious chocolate cream pie dessert bites are sinfully delicious, but they weigh in at a minuscule 37.5 calories apiece – even less if you make your pudding with skim milk and use a low-calorie dessert topping in place of whipped cream. Best of all, they’re quick to whip up – and they’re so elegant, they’re a great choice for a pot luck or dinner party take-along.
24 vanilla wafers
2 cups chocolate pudding, prepared with 2% milk
2 cups light whipped cream
24 mini-cupcake liners
Place 1 vanilla wafer in the bottom of a cupcake liner, flat side up. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of chocolate pudding on top of the wafer, and spread to the sides of the cookie. Top with 1 tablespoon of light whipped cream. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
