Emergency dessert......

There are times when basic instincts take over. Survival of the fittest.
I often find myself in a situation that takes drastic measures, or at least creative measures, or......well, I do what I can.
Such is the emergency dessert. In between holidays, it's slim picking around here in the dessert department. So here is the solution, in my mind anyway. It does the trick.

One container of chocolate syrup that has been in the fridge since summer.

One container of whipped cream. LIGHT whipped cream. I hear it contains no calories as opposed to it's heavier brother, HEAVY whipped cream.

Carefully pour the chocolate syrup into a teaspoon. I don't use a tablespoon because that would be pigging out, tempting though it is.

Squirt out a healthy dollop of the light whipped cream. Deposit into mouth.

Do it again.

Yum. Emergency solved.

The only thing missing for me, is I would have dipped the spoon ( a larger one!) in peanut butter, then pour chocolate sauce on it, then add the whipped cream. But I'm with you!

Only twice? Oh that's right 3 teaspoons equal a tablespoon so now I get it. I like your plate, very pretty! ~Lili

You are much more "held back" and graceful than I would be. I'm with Lois....just let er rip (with the can) and give er a good squirt...with the chocolate...a couple of times! Even your last picture, looks like a chef is leaving his signature chocolate sauce on a place....with the tiny dessert to go on top. Yum! Come January 1st, I won't even have these two items in my house! I've been very bad....got 50 lashings by my heart doctor!

That's funny! I do all of that minus the spoon...

Thanks for popping by...come back soon.

Works for me. You even did fancy art with the chocolate to make a classy dessert.
