Have you ever been to a party or potluck and felt a little overwhelmed by all the dessert options? It can be tough to decide which one you want to try most when there are several delicious choices! That's why I'm such a huge fan of mini desserts!

Small bite desserts give you the option of trying several different treats without going totally overboard on portion size like you might if they were all full size.
