It's time for another round of #SundaySupper yumminess! Because today is Mother's Day and we all love the moms in our lives, we are sharing recipes for Mother's Day. I chose dessert because that is something my mom enjoys making. My mom always volunteered to make mints (the cream cheese kind) for wedding showers, baby showers, and graduation open houses when I was little. She volunteered to make desserts for church. She made cookies, bars, and cakes. She actually went to school for cake decorating and does that for a hobby nowadays for her church's "meals on wheels" type program.

I chose to do a smaller portion dessert because even though my mom loves sweets - she doesn't like big portions of them. She also loves fruit and cheesecake! So this combination is just perfect for her and many other moms too :) When I made these, I split them up into five portions - two for the kids and three for the adults. When I make it again (yes, again!), I will definitely double the amount and make it in 4 jam mason jars for four full desserts. It's really fast to throw together and turns out very tasty and sits light in your stomach. So it's really perfect for a big get-together pot roast type Sunday dinner - like we're having tonight at my mom-in-law's. It was the perfect amount of dessert and incredibly creamy and fluffy. It tasted like an amazing cheesecake, but in a more pudding type version. Definitely cannot be missed - you have to try this for the moms in your life!

What you need:
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • Berries [if frozen, thaw prior to making]
  • Whipped cream
Directions:
  1. Mix together Nutella, yogurt, and cream cheese - I used my hand mixer for this - until smooth.
  2. Mix together butter and graham cracker crumbs. Press into the bottom of shot glasses, small mason jars, etc. I split ours 5 way and only layered it once. Next time I will probably double the batch and make it in 4 small jam mason jars.
  3. Pipe or spoon a little Nutella mixture into each glass. Add a layer of fruit and then top with more Nutella mixture.
  4. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.
  5. Top with whipped cream and fruit for serving!
