The BEST Bite Size Desserts Recipes and Mini, Individual, Yummy Treats – Perfectly Pretty for Your Baby and Bridal Showers, Weddings and Birthday Party Dessert Tables and Holiday Celebrations!

Looking for the prettiest little bite-sized treats recipes, individual mouth-watering desserts and mini decadent refreshments for your party – plus, EASY?   I don’t know what it is about mini versions of any kind of food (especially dessert!) – but they make me SO happy!  Individual servings are always so much prettier, and since it’s rumored that we eat first with our eyes, they are just that much yummier!   I could show you charts and data, but I have a feeling you agree that we don’t need science and proof to know this is a fact.    Bite-sized desserts and miniature size treats recipes are PERFECT for (every single minute of every single day – but ESPECIALLY):

  • Bridal Showers
  • Weddings
  • Birthday Party Dessert Tables
  • Valentine’s Day
  • Easter
  • Mother’s Day
  • Book Club
  • Mixers, Dances and Socials
  • Girls’ Night In
  • Yummy Treat Gift Baskets
  • Saying You are Sorry (they guarantee you’ll be forgiven, every single time)
  • Netflix Marathons

I really can’t think of a holiday or occasion where they aren’t the right answer.  Can you? Continue reading →
