When you're at a restaurant, do you order a single dessert with multiple forks? Do you ask for "just a teeny, tiny slice" whenever someone serves you cake? And if you're at a party, do you prefer a variety of miniature dessert choices?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, Bite-Size Desserts is the cookbook for you. Created for home bakers who want small desserts with big flavors, it gives you recipes for nearly 90 bite-size delights. These diminutive desserts are ideal for elegant entertaining, but they also make delightful everyday treats.

Master baker Carole Bloom has collected a wide range of mini desserts here, and you're sure to find one (or two or three) that are perfect for every occasion. Wicked Brownie Bites, Double Lemon Meringue Tartlets, Chocolate-Espresso Pots de Crème, Spiced Buttermilk Doughnut Holes, Raspberry Sorbet Shots, and Salted Caramel-Bittersweet Chocolate Truffles are just a few of the petite goodies you'll discover. 

Best of all, these little desserts are no more difficult to make than their full-size cousins. The author gives you a complete introduction to the world of small sweets, explaining ingredients and techniques and guiding you to the right equipment, including miniature pans and ramekins of all kinds. Exceptionally clear recipe instructions show you how to get great results every time, and Bloom also provides tips on storage as well as recipe shortcuts and variations.

Bite-Size Desserts is the perfect way to cut down on portion sizes and calories without sacrificing flavor. When indulgences are this small, your friends and family are allowed to splurge!
