I just love it when I find an unexpected use for something I already own. A few years ago I bought these hot chocolate cups in two sizes because I am a sucker for "real" dishes that look like a takeout containers. I use the tall ones fairly often for coffee, but these tiny ones sat unused because apparently I'm a mean Mommy and don't give my kids hot chocolate too often. Recently I spied them in the cabinet when I was serving up some yogurt to my kiddos, and it wasn't until I was actually spooning the yogurt in that I realized that they are the exact size of individual disposable yogurt containers. Love that.
I buy or make plain full fat yogurt and sweeten it myself-- 4T of real maple syrup and 1t of vanilla per quart. We avoid processed sugars as much as possible, so this gives me some control over the amount of sweeteners in our yogurt. These cute little cups are also available in lovely colors (I'd like to put an official order in for 8 aqua ones for my upcoming April 1st birthday, Friends and Family), and I saw them on this new-to-me cooking blog being used as custard cups. So cute!
One more discovery-- after searching high and low for tiny spoons for Lucie, I stumbled upon appetizer spoons in my local hardware store (this was when we were still near in Ann Arbor, so for any locals, it was the amazing Ace Barnes Hardware). They were close to a perfect match for our flatware, cost a couple of bucks each, and have lasted much longer than the plastic ones I have used before these. These are Norpro brand and so far I have been unable to find them on the internet, but I would imagine many nice cooking stores would carry something similar.
Lucie seems to approve.
