Best little rich dessert that can be served in a lil glass cup!

I have these really cute lil glass square cups and want to serve something very rich but lil and pretty - clear glass.

I don't want simple pudding or ice cream, any ideas??

  1. creme brulee, mini cheesecake, flourless chocolate cake baked in muffin tins, etc.

        sorry, meant to add - NO oven, only presentation wow factor!

          Here's a few pots de creme recipes for refrigerator only, so I guess the oven is optional:

          My last cooking class featured Nutella Panna Cotta which was out of this world. Very little prep.

          Served with a small dollop of whipped cream.

            Could you share the recipe? That sounds so good. Thanks!

        3. Blackberry or raspberry mousse.

            yes, a mousse would work wonderfully thanks.

              not oven or broiler safe, things can be baked/cooked ahead of time then dished up in these. not sure cake type items would work but maybe a no cook cheesecake would.

                Be careful with the kitchen torch, too. It comes with the possibility of shattering your glass cups.

            2. If they are oven safe, you could probably bake a really nice looking chocolate soufflé in them!
