Crumbled chocolate chip cookies serve as the crust for these muffin-sized mini pies that showcase layers of chocolaty pudding, cherry filling, grated chocolate and whipped cream.
To make quick work of this recipe, substitute boxed pudding for the homemade, and use cherry pie filling for the cherries.
To make this even more reminiscent of Black Forest Cake, stir in a tablespoon or so of kirsch (cherry brandy) into the cherry filling.
Placing plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding ensures that the dreaded pudding skin will not form. Any extra pudding and cherries can be layered into jars to make pudding parfaits.
