Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Mini, sparkling Rice Krispy Treats
Cheesecake can feel so indulgent in a slice, but poured into a mini-muffin cup and suddenly it's fun, whimsical and ok to eat more than one! You can also have a lot of fun with mix-ins or toppings: various fruit, chopped candy bars, chocolate chips, Oreo's, whip cream on top... etc.
Yup, this is the "party version" of Rice Krispy Treats. Basically, follow the directions on the box for making the Rice Krispy treats and right after you've pressed them into the pan and they're still warm, throw on some sanding sugar or sprinkles. Cut them into one-inch squares so that they're teeny little bites.
So maybe you're not a planner and this has become a last-minute party. Or maybe you're not a baker and need a quick, yummy dessert. Well I think there's nothing wrong with purchasing Petit Fours. I actually bought these exact one's from Trader Joe's and Whole Food's also has a beautiful selection in their bakery department. I've actually never made Petit Fours because they seem daunting- the thought of individually decorating each and every tiny cake overwhelms me. Just break open a box of these, display on a pretty platter next to some fruit and no one will complain- because their mouths will be full of cake!
