TWO DESSERTS ONE PLATE - VANILLA CREAM PEACHES AND CHOCOLATE RUM BON BON

These two darling desserts I imported from other blog of mine "Nina's Culinary Creations".
It's been posted a while ago but I never post the recipes; so, here they are starting with the most simple and delicious one:

VANILLA CREAM PEACHES

INGREDIENTS:
1 can (16 oz.) peaches in light syrup (halves),
1 pk. instant vanilla pudding,
1 cup cool whip topping,
maraschino cherries for garnish;
DIRECTIONS:
Prepare vanilla pudding following directions from the box. Refrigerate until set.
Drain peaches; let set on paper towels cavity down until most of the moisture is gone ; arrange peaches on double foil paper cups (or just on serving plate); pipe vanilla pudding on top of each peach cavity; follow by piping cool whip topping and garnish with maraschino cherries.


CHOCOLATE RUM BON BON

INGREDIENTS:
3 cups cookie crumble,
1 cup unsalted butter,
1 cup powder sugar,
1/4 cup cocoa powder + 1/4 additional
1/2 cup milk,
2 tablespoons rum extract (or 1/3 cup brandy - not for children in this case),
1 teaspoon vanilla extract;
DIRECTIONS:
Combine cookie crumble with milk and set aside; using a electric mixer combine butter, sugar, 1/4 cocoa powder, rum (brandy) and vanilla; add moistened cookie crumble. Refrigerate for one hour. Form 1 - 1/2 inch balls and roll them in the remaining 1/4 cocoa powder. You can place each bon bon in candie wrappers, or candy dish. Refrigerate until use!


ENJOY!
Have a nice day!
