Many people see tiny things as cute. Kittens, puppies, chicks, and anything tiny can melt even the coldest of hearts, making anyone’s day instantly better. This goes for food as well. Seeing bite-sized creations can make a person just want to gobble them up. Why not go for mini-desserts on your next event, like a wedding catering in the Philippines? Here are some tiny dessert ideas that will definitely please your guests:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls
Peanut butter and chocolate are childhood favorites. Probably the best flavor combination ever, these peanut butter and chocolate balls will definitely please everyone, even the pickiest of eaters. All you need to do is combine peanut butter, some softened butter, and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix until all of the ingredients are incorporated with one another then roll them into 1-inch size balls. Put them in the fridge for an hour then dip them in melted chocolate. Allow the chocolate to harden then serve.
Who doesn’t love a good cheesecake? And bite-sized at that?
Mini cheesecakes are so good they are probably the best mini desserts ever. If you know how to make a cheesecake, all you need to do is put them in cupcake liners instead of cake pans. When they are ready to serve, top them with your favorite fruit jam then watch the guests go crazy over these delectable delights.
Strawberry Nutella Pretzel Bites
If you are into adorable-looking desserts, then this idea might be what you are looking for. Pretzels are great as they are but when combined with Nutella, you will get a creamy, chocolaty treat that everyone will love.
Simply mix Nutella with powdered sugar then gently spread the mixture over a pretzel or pretzel bites if you prefer. Freeze the pretzel for 15-30 minutes and, while the pretzel is setting, take some red candy melts then put them in the microwave. Make sure to keep an eye on them and stir them every now and then to help them melt evenly. Take the pretzel bites out then carefully dip them in the melted red candy. While the red candy is still wet on the pretzel, you can decorate your strawberries with sunflower seeds. You can dye your seeds white and green to make your pretzel bites look like real strawberries.
Teacup Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate chip cookies are a classic in the snack and dessert category. They can be made into ice cream sandwiches, dessert toppers, trail mix, or just plain cookie is enough. Chocolate cookies that can be stacked in a teacup are not only cute to look at; they can be centerpieces as well! Grab several teacups then fill them with mini chocolate cookies.
Your guests can munch on these treats while waiting for the meal proper to begin. Just make sure you have a lot in stock because these cookies will not last for a couple of hours.
Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches
Everyone loves ice cream, no doubt about it! In fact, ice cream can be eaten in a variety of ways; and with a miniaturized variety of it, that leaves you with more than enough room to enjoy more desserts on the table.
What should always be remembered when it comes to this mini dessert is constant circulation. Ice cream is still ice cream, which means it can melt as soon as it leaves the freezer. When you serve this, encourage your guests to have as much as they want, just not enough for a brain-freeze.
Cupcakes are everyone’s favorite dessert no matter what the occasion. If you’re looking to serve this at your wedding reception, but save on quantity at the same time, why not serve miniaturized versions of this dessert? Not only will you and your guests be able to enjoy them in one bite, but you can also leave your stomach room for more if you wish so.
Speaking of everyone’s favorite dessert, there’s nothing more classic than brownies. The soft and delicious, as well as chocolate-y, texture is enough for anyone and everyone to drool for. So, why not serve these in your reception?
In fact, if you wish, bite-sized brownies never go out of style. Not only are they just as delicious as their normal-sized counterparts, but you can choose to pack them with as much flavor as you want.
Mini Cookie Sandwiches
If you’ve ever had a cookie sandwich that’s so good, you can’t even describe it, then serving these in your wedding reception is more than delightful. In fact, if you wish so, why not go all-out with your fillings? With that much variety this dessert provides, you can never go wrong in serving this in your wedding reception.
Mini Cinnamon Rolls
Desserts glazed with decadent cream and frosting are just the ones that are able to mesmerize anyone with a sweet tooth. Besides, what’s more enjoyable than the sticky, gooey, cinnamon sensation these desserts can give you?
Mini Dessert Pizzas
We’ve all heard of mini pizzas and dessert pizzas; but mixing the two together into one miniature dessert option? Now that’s a unique twist!
Having these in your wedding reception can blur the lines between savory and sweet in a good way. This dessert packs the same dough as a mini pizza, while also the numerous dessert toppings as a dessert pizza. For this, have your way with the dessert toppings available, whether it be chocolate or fruit, and go wild with flavor.
This goes to show that while bigger is better, the small ones can still definitely pack quite a punch. Once you have served any (or all) of these mini-desserts to your guests, all that’s left to do is to eat them and go to heaven. Yes, they’re that good.
