Don’t get me wrong I love both of those flavors but I hadn’t indulged in any chocolate desserts for awhile so I decided to share with you these Black Forest Pastry Cups!
We made these to celebrate my youngest losing her first tooth! She is just a few months away from being 7 years old and she was getting a little impatient about not losing her teeth!
This event actually made me somewhat sad. I knew this was going to be my last experience for a child losing their first tooth so it was definitely bittersweet.
What was super sweet about this experience is that my daughter drew a picture and left a note for the tooth fairy. She got a big surprise when in the morning she had a response to her note and a dollar bill! Now she wants to go to the dollar store to buy something! It’s cute!
MAKING PASTRY CUPS:
So for these pastry cups. I do not use the cups too often but they make getting a dessert on the table super quick. I think the last time I used them was when I made these banana nutella puff pastry cups. Remember them? They were so good!
For the filling of these pastry cups I went with a simple homemade chocolate whipped cream and cherry pie filling.
When baking the cups I would start watching to see if they are done at the 15 minute mark. The package says minimum 18 minutes but if you have a gas stove they will cook faster!
MAKING WHIPPED CREAM:
When make the whipped cream I made sure I put my beaters for my mixer in the freezer for at least five minutes so they are super cold when you whip the cream!
