Try These 3 Bite-Sized Dessert Ideas This Thanksgiving
Forget apple pie. This Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks to bite-sized desserts that let us indulge, guilt-free!
Thanksgiving. A time for giving thanks. A time for celebrating your family and friends and all that you have. A time for enjoying an incredible meal, followed by even more incredible desserts. But just because it’s Thanksgiving doesn’t mean you have to have high-calorie, high-maintenance desserts that are also highly filling. This year, introduce your family to a new era of dessert: bite-sized morsels that are both satisfying and lip-smackin’ delicious.
The Bite-Sized Revolution
Diet fads are everywhere these days, and the holidays makes it difficult to be able to sit down with your loved ones and enjoy your meal. Instead, many people are worried about calorie-counting, over-stuffing themselves and the repercussions a gobble-licious dinner will have on their waistline. Bite-sized desserts are taking the culinary world by storm. It’s a great way to indulge in some of the most decadent desserts without feeling like you’ve crossed the line or had one bite too many. Rather, it lets you enjoy those après-meal delicacies you might not have tasted before. With bite-sized desserts, who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
Desserts With Benefits
Bite-sized desserts also afford you the luxury of being able to make several different kinds of desserts instead of having one cake, for instance. Having a flight of desserts, so to speak, lets you and your guests sample a little of everything. It’s really the best of all sweet worlds.
