Chocolate Mint Pudding in Tuile Cups

Looks good, right?  Well it didn't look that good for long.  What the title should read is "Chocolate Mint Pudding in Soggy Tuile Cups."  Maybe I was asking for it, making them on a humid day and then filling them with... pudding.  But I had never made tuile before, so how would I have known?  

I just had an innocent chocolate mint craving, and thought that chocolate and mint needed to be in cold, creamy form (pudding!), and then I happened upon a recipe for mousse-filled almond tuile cups in one of my cookbooks, and thought that chocolate tuile would compliment the pudding perfectly.  Well, it did - it tasted amazing.  But after about 10 minutes the tuile just became the "crepe formerly known as tuile".  Yeah, totally flat and crepe-like.  And we ate these with forks.  Lame.  Delicious, but lame, indeed.  

Oh well.  Update with recipe to come when I figure out a better way to do this.  I'm thinking oreo crust.  Oh yeah, baby.  

Update:

Oreo crust worked (of course).

But I'm a dork and didn't write down anything when I made the pudding (typical 3 AM Allison retarded baking moment), so I'm not giving a recipe because I'll probably remember something wrong and then anyone who tries this will fail miserably and it will all be my fault.  Not that pudding is really that fickle of a thing... but still.

So I will leave you with this picture of minty goodness.  Yummmmm.

Ugh, I take that back.  Blogger is being really uncooperative and I have to go to class.  Picture will come later...

Don't you hate what the idea in your head just doesn't quite formulate through your hands! I have had a lot of those this past week. Very creative idea. I imagine the pudding is much heavier than the mousse. Keep trying, you will figure something out!
