The other weekend I was sitting at my son’s basketball game when I realized I needed to bring a dessert to a party that evening. Not being prepared at all, I was a little stunned. I would have to buy something instead of making a dessert. However, after browsing the bakery aisle I was reminded of a dessert I had made many years ago that will take only a few minutes to put together. This Last minute desserts was a crowd pleaser too.
All you need is to pick up some Phyllo cups, a can of dulce de leche and chocolate chips. I told you this is going to be easy. I have found that these phyllo cups are now coming already baked which cuts your time down as well.
Ok now the hard part…. LOL
Add a dollop of the dulce de leche into each phyllo pastry cup. I found keeping them in the plastic trays was very easy.
While you are doing this, melt 1 cup of double chocolate morsels. (I used Ghiradelli extra dark as I had that on hand)
Then spoon some chocolate over the caramel and top with your choice of nuts.
This could not be simplier. I placed my trays into the freezer for a few minutes to set.
The best thing about this last-minute dessert idea is that it is also a make ahead dessert recipe. You can make these cups and once they have set, cover them with some saran wrap and keep in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.
I purchased some bakery goods as well and made my platter for the party. I did notice the macaroons were still on the platter and these Caramel-Chocolate tartlets were all gone. Love the flavor combination of Caramel and Chocolate, be sure and check out this Dulce De Leche Cheesecake Bites Recipe too.
