Mocha Tartlets Recipe

     I am planning a fancy seven course dinner time some time in the near future.  I have one about every ten years or so and I am past due.  We are really simple, country people but occasionally it is fun to throw on some fancy duds and pretend to be posh.  :-)
     These "Mocha Tartlets" will be the hors d'oevre for the party (unless I change my mind between now and then).  We made 28 of them and between my hubby and my 2 boys, they were all gone in an hour.  Needless to say, they loved them.  I did manage to get two of them and they were delicious as always.
     If you do make them for a party, do not let on how simple they are to make.  Everyone will go on and on about them and let them assume you slaved to make them.
Mocha Tartlets

1 c. heavy cream
2 T. sugar
2 tsp. french vanilla cappuccino powder
1 tsp. vanilla
chocolate cake sprinkles
56 vanilla or chocolate wafers

     Place the heavy cream, sugar, cappuccino powder and vanilla into a mixing bowl.  Using an electric mixer, whip the heavy cream mixture until stiff peaks form.  Using foil cupcake tins, place a wafer in the bottom, place 1 tsp. of whipping cream mixture on top.  Place another wafer on top and then another teaspoon of whipping cream.  Finally, sprinkle on the chocolate sprinkles and chill for 2 hours to soften the wafers or eat immediately.

     The funniest part of this all was watching my husband lick the beaters like he was a little kid.  He was having such a good time licking them that he refused to share.  That's my babe!
