Strawberry Trifle Shots

The best part about strawberry trifle shots, apart from the taste, is their captivating colors. Include this dessert in your party menu, and your dessert table will be off to slay.


  • Milk (500 ml)
  • Custard powder (2 tbsp)
  • Sugar (4 tbsp)
  • Strawberry jelly mix packet
  • Heavy whipping cream (100 ml)


Step 1: Mix custard powder in 4 tbsp cold water. Boil milk in a saucepan and add the custard mix in it gradually while stirring. Keep stirring with a whisk because you don’t want any lumps in your dessert. When it reaches the perfect consistency, i.e., not too runny, not too thick, take it off the stove and let it cool down. Transfer in a piping bag.

Step 2: Prepare the jelly following the recipe written on the packet. While the jelly is hot, pour it into mini cups, so it sets in them.

Step 3: Meanwhile, whip up the heavy whipping cream until soft peak forms. Transfer in a piping bag and put a piping tip at the end.

Step 4: Now pour the custard mix on top of the jelly and then finalize with a layer of heavy whipping cream. Finally, top it off with strawberry slices and blueberries. Serve chilled.

Chocolate Mousse Shots

This is another custard recipe but with the goodness of chocolate. Your guests will be happy if they get served chocolate mousse after the main course. But it looks even more delightful when this dessert is served in plastic mini partyware.


  • Prepared custard
  • Cocoa powder (3 tbsp)
  • Melted chocolate (4 tbsp)
  • Heavy whipping cream (100 ml)
  • Chocolate cupcakes (5-6)


Step 1: Prepare custard-like we did in the previous recipe. Once it cools down, add the melted chocolate and cocoa powder and give everything a good mix. Cover .with a plastic wrap and let it set for an hour to help it take a mousse-like texture. Transfer in a piping bag.

Step 2: Whip up heavy whipping cream until soft peak forms. Pour it into a piping bag with piping cut at the end.

Step 3: Assemble in our disposable mini partyware to enhance the beauty of this dessert. Layer crumbled cupcakes in mini disposable bowls and press them with another cup to have an even look in the end. Pour the mousse on top and top it off with whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate shavings and chocolate syrup. Chill the cups in the refrigerator before serving.

Key Lime Pie Shooters
