Did you know that 32% of people consume dessert twice every week? 

If you’re hosting a party, choosing the right dessert can be tricky. Guests all have different preferences and catering to all of these can be tough. Many desserts are also delicate and are not easy to hold and cannot be left sitting out for long. 

The answer to your problems is mini dessert recipes. 

Small, handheld desserts are easy for guests to grab and go with. You can also make a lot of mini desserts to ensure that every guest is able to have one or a few. Mini desserts can also be made in multiple different flavors. 

From desert cups to handheld pies, here’s your guide to the best mini dessert recipes for parties! 

Miniature Pies 

Any of your favorite pie flavors can be made mini. Pecan, rhubarb, apple, cherry, and pumpkin can all be made small. Usually, all that’s required is a cupcake tray, which makes the idea of mini pies approachable to anyone. It’s just important to remember that mini pies will burn easier than regular pies, and cook times will be different. 

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Who doesn’t love cheesecake? Stuffing strawberries with cheesecake puts a creative spin on a classic dessert everyone loves. No-bake cheesecake recipes make this desert simple to execute. You can make both chocolate and traditional cheesecake fillings to give guests options.  

Handheld Dessert Cups

There are endless flavor options when it comes to desert cups. Dessert cups can be tailored to match any type of cuisine and they can be used at any time of year. In the spring, consider making an English style trifle. Layer smores ingredients or vanilla and chocolate pudding for a classic cup everyone will love. Consider a deconstructed cake style dessert cup, with crumbled cake, mousse-like filling, and icing. 

Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate truffles are as easy as mix and sit. Homemade truffles add a thoughtful touch to a gathering that buying them from a store doesn’t. Usually, only a handful of ingredients are needed for delicious truffles.

Just don’t expect to have any leftovers! 

Chocolate Fondue 

Chocolate fondue turns dessert into an experience and an activity. It also enables guests to create whatever they want. Fruit like cherries, strawberries, and bananas are all great options. You can even set out a “banana split station” with sprinkles, chopped nuts, white chocolate and all of the essentials.

Small graham crackers and marshmallows can also allow people to make their own handheld smores. Adding a caramel fondue pot with slices of apples also creates more dessert creations for guests. 

Doughnut Holes
