  • You could make mini cream-puffs or eclairs. Truffles or some sort of homemade candy would be good...Turtles maybe or fudge? Depends on if you're just wanting sweet or actual Dessert.

    I've also had little mini cheesecakes made in a mini muffin paper with a Nilla wafer for the crust, cream cheese mixture in the middle and fruit on the top.

  • Those little tarts made in tiny muffin tins- a little pie dough and then whatever filling you want.

    Or strawberries dipped in chocolate. Or cut up fruits on a toothpick

    Or tiny muffins made in those little muffin tins.

  • I make brownies from a box, but I bake them in mini muffin tins. It's always a hit.

  • Fill filo pastry shells (available in the freezer section and are already baked) with pie filling or mousse. OR, put the shells on a baking sheet, add a mini peanut butter cup & place in preheated oven for 2-3 minutes to soften-spread softened chocolate with a knofe.

  • Strawberries Stuffed with Cranberry Mascarpone

    8 ounces mascarpone cheese
    1/4 cup dried cranberries, finely chopped
    1/2 teaspoon orange zest
    1 tablespoon orange liqueur or orange juice
    12 large (jumbo if available) strawberries, halved

    24 servings

    30 minutes 30 mins prep

    Combine mascarpone cheese, dried cranberries, orange peel, and liqueur in a bowl.

    Pipe into strawberry halves using a pastry bag fitted with an open star tip. If you don't have a pastry bag, use a plastic storage bag, cut off one corner.

  • You can be very creative with this:

    Rum Truffles

    4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
    1/2 stick of butter
    2 1/3 cup sifted powder sugar
    2 tsp (or more) of good, dark rum – you can also use vanilla extract, concentrated juice, etc.
    chocolate sprinkles (I mix granulated sugar with cocoa

    Slowly melt chocolate in saucepan, add butter, stir constantly until blended. Remove from heat stir in powder sugar and add rum. Make into 1" balls and roll in chocolate sprinkles. Let cool for 5 hours. Store in refrigerator or freezer.
