I'm impressed with the engineering of this dessert. Crushed cookies with a cap of chocolate become the base for a spoonful of banana-infused rice pudding. It seems easy to assemble and definitely looks solid enough to serve as finger food at a dessert buffet without toppling at the first nibble.
I could see serving these at a baby shower or mother's day brunch, or even a children's birthday party - though I have a feeling they might have more appeal to the parents in attendance. This dessert could also easily become a gluten-free treat if the cookies in the base were replaced with a wheat-free alternative.
These rice pudding cups are quite possibly the trifecta of dessert awesomeness. I, for one, can't wait to spring them on my next dinner guests.
