Ready-made shells with the following fillings for the Sweet Party Platter:

  • Caramel Condensed Milk with coconut and cherry toppings
  • Dark Chocolate Mousse with whipped cream
  • Peppermint Crisp
  • White Chocolate Mousse with drizzled dark chocolate and sliced strawberries
  • Lemon Meringues – very zesty
  • Milktart (no-bake) with cinnamon topping

We have a baking supply store not even 5 minutes away. Normally I like to make my own pastries/shells, but now and then I need to have some snacks ready in a flash.


That is where this store comes in so handy. They get freshly baked shells (about an inch in diameter), sold in packets of 100, regularly.

What is so great about these shells ?

They can be frozen and when needed, you need only take them from the freezer and thaw at room temperature for an hour or two. Do check with your supplier though if using ready to fill baked shells.

The freshness is still there, as long as you’ve put them in the freezer as soon as possible after purchase. I usually do not freeze them, because I know I’ll use most of these little gems on the same day.

Sweet Party Platter is normally the first sweet treats to go as it contains a lot of different, tiny bites of delight.

Full list of ingredients required for 80 treats on the Sweet Party Platter:

  • 1 can (of a 397 grams) Caramel Condensed Milk ( 14 oz )
  • 8 Red Glace Cherries, halved
  • 1 t Dessicated Coconut

TIP: Have all your ingredients on hand and it will be finished in 90 minutes. The ingredients above may seem like small quantities, however that is for 6 different fillings.

Some of the fillings I have used for years in larger tarts with proper crusts and the works. However, as you will see I use a few short-cuts as well – that is the point for today’s post. Quick, easy and very tasty.

Red Cherries and/or Coconut, to decorate
15 Ready-made shells

1.) Pour the Caramel condensed milk into a small bowl and just mix slightly with a fork until smooth.
2.) Fill the shells either by using a piping bag or a teaspoon
3.) Top with Cherries or Coconut and place in the fridge till ready to serve!

(Agreed – this is a no-brainer, but an extra idea for a nice mixed platter)

Dark Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream (10 filled shells)

1/4 cup (60ml) Full Cream Milk
12.5g Dark Chocolate, (0.5 oz)
1 t (5ml) Cocoa Powder
1 Egg, separated
2 TB Sugar
1/2 t Unflavored Gelatin
2.5 t Cold Water
2 Drops of Vanilla Essence
2 TB Fresh Cream, Whipped
10 Ready-made shells

1.) Pour the Milk, Dark chocolate chips and Cocoa into a small saucepan – Heat, while stirring continuously, till the chocolate is melted.
2.) Whisk the Egg yellow in a small bowl – From the chocolate mixture, add spoon by spoon to the egg, ensuring the egg heats slowly – Stir the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture in the saucepan, stirring all the time (about 2 minutes), until the mixture has thickened. Do not boil the mixture. Remove from heat.
3.) Sprinkle the Gelatin over the cold water, wait till softened, 1 – 2 minutes. Add the Gelatin to the Milk mixture, stir until Gelatin is dissolved. Now add the Vanilla and mix.
4.)Fill the shells with a teaspoon – Whisk the Egg white until stiff, fold he Whipped cream in and decorate. Place in the fridge till set (5 – 10 minutes) or till ready to serve

(This mousse sets fairly quickly as it is only a small amount per shell, therefore you need only wait a minute or two before decorating with the Whipped cream)
