"I made this dessert when I wanted to make something small and sweet for dessert. All I had in the house was cream cheese and chocolate chips, and thus the Shot Glass Cream Cheese Dessert was born. It is so simple and can be whipped up in an instant. You can substitute crushed graham crackers instead of mini chocolate chips if you'd like more of a crust." — cakelover28

I love shot glass desserts! I often order them in restaurants, so I was happy to try this one! I tweaked it to become an 'Almond Joy' flavored dessert because I'm on an 'Almond Joy' candy bar kick lately! I only made 2 servings. I lightened up the cheese by using 1/2 cream cheese(fat free) and 1/2 ricotta cheese. I also added a few drops of almond and coconut extracts to get that 'Almond Joy' flavor. I also topped it with sweetened shredded coconut and chocolate chips. This was soooo good that I wished it was larger than a shot glass! YUM!
This seemed ideal for a small, sweet dessert. Since I was out of chocolate chips. I substituted Heath Bar chips and drizzled chocolate on top. Like the idea of using low fat cream cheese - this has a lot of possibilities depending on the contents of my cupboard. (We live miles from the nearest store, so don't make trips for one item!)
