Sweet & Savory




With the Easter holiday around the corner many of us are planning to attend brunches, dinners, or parties where we are asked to bring a side or dessert.  Most often at these social gathering people just want a taste of something sweet.  We're all feeling the need to shed our winter weight and big servings of sugary sweets just aren't on the agenda.  These cake bites are the perfect size to enjoy the holiday without over indulging.  You can satisfy the need for a sweet treat without the guilt.  Sure to please the kiddies and adults this tasty dessert is a great addition to any occasion.

  6. I can always get by with a small morsel, but if it is a big bite, I will eat the entire thing, so these are perfect. So pretty too! I would love if you would link up to my "The Yuck Stops Here" link party. It is full of great recipes like yours and we would love to have you!
