Ingredients For Mini Boston Cream Pie Bites

  • One yellow cake mix box
  • Two big eggs
  • One (3.4 oz) packet of instant vanilla custard mix
  • Half a cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of chilled milk
  • One cup of chocolate chips, semisweet
  • Two tablespoons of milk or heavy cream


Instructions For Mini Boston Cream Pie Bites

  • Lightly grease a tiny muffin tin and preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • To make a soft dough, combine the eggs, vegetable oil, and yellow cake mix in a large mixing basin.
  • Fill each cup of your mini muffin tin with dough using a little cookie scoop or spoon. Press to create a tiny well at the bottom.
  • Bake for ten to twelve minutes, or until the centres are set and the borders are light golden brown.
  • 5. In a medium bowl, stir together the instant vanilla custard mix and cool milk until smooth while the cookies bake. Let it thicken in the refrigerator for approximately five minutes.
  • After the cookies are done, take them out of the oven and press down on the centre of each one to create a more defined well for the filling. You may do this by using the back of a teaspoon. After five minutes of cooling in the pan, move the food to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Spoon the vanilla pudding into each well of the cooled cookie cups.
  • To make the glaze, heat the heavy cream and chocolate chips in a bowl that is safe to use in the microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring, until the mixture is smooth and glossy.
  • Cover the filled cookies with a spoonful or a thin layer of chocolate glaze. Give it a few minutes to settle.
  • To allow the custard to set before serving, place the bits in the refrigerator for about an hour.



Changes & Advice:

  • To achieve a more flavorful cookie base, substitute butter for oil.
  • Use a store-bought chocolate ganache or frosting in favour of the homemade glaze if you’re pressed for time.
  • Before the chocolate hardens, add some colourful sprinkles or chopped almonds to the tops for an interesting variation.
  • Storage advice: To keep the pudding from going bad, store your Boston Cream Pie Bites in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
  • Getting ahead? Prepare your cookie cups ahead of time and keep them chilled. Just before serving, fill with custard and drizzle with glaze to keep everything incredibly fresh!With that, you’ve got a delectable homemade delicacy that has all the charm of a Boston cream pie in just one flawless bite. Savour each luscious, creamy bite.
