Quick Banoffee Cups

Sometimes there just isn’t the time to make a dessert, however I can always make time to eat one! These Quick Banoffee Cups are just what you need when in a hurry.

Thanks to the boys and the internal timer they both possess. Alarm bells are usually sounding loud and clear, way before I reach dessert when dining out. When we are in the comforts of our own home, dessert is something that can be enjoyed…. Even if it means waiting until they are both in bed!

I have to admit, I do bend the rules in our house with dessert. Bam Bam has always had a habit  of eating his dessert halfway through a meal. You may think that this would mean he is just filling up on empty calories. But it actually makes him finish his dinner, so what the hey!

Nugget, on the other hand, very rarely entertains a dessert. A taste of anything sweet other than fruit, is usually met with a look of complete contempt as the spoonful is spat back out at me! I just don’t think his sweet tooth has grown in yet. But, with this mumma’s cooking I am sure it will eventually! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to make my boys fat, or hooked on sugar. But everyone deserves to enjoy a yummy dessert, all in moderation of course!
