Those are wicked cute! :) A few of our local restaurants have taken to making "mini" versions of their desserts, and then encourage you to mix and match them :) Thanks so much for posting this one Rosie!Waving to all :)

You gals are a hoot.
You`re all very welcome.
When we drive down to visit our son at the Univ. of Georgia, we stop in Chatanooga and our favorite restaurant there is Blue Water Grill. They serve mini desserts in shot glasses, just like this, and they are SO much FUN!!! Like Jolene said, they want you to choose 2 or 3 to taste them.
I would love to do this for a dinner party, but the tough part is finding those adorable glasses!!!
Thanks for the inspiration, Rosie!!!
Mom3boys__MissouriI would love to do this for a dinner party, but the tough part is finding those adorable glasses!!!
Ellen, I was thinking the same thing this morning. Not sure if I'd find them at Pier One. If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Even though putting them in a martini or margarita glass would work - I agree the small glasses are definitely cuter. That way you could sample several different types. *please note the emphasis is on several*
