Yesterday we published a list of hors d’oeuvre picks and bites for holiday entertaining. Today, it’s on to desserts!
These irresistible desserts are easy to make and almost guiltless. Enjoy just a bite or two instead of a full-size dessert.
Not only are they the best way to enjoy some sweetness at the end of a big feast, but they’re lower in calories. And you can have a few different varieties for a miniature “dessert sampler.”
From the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (EatWisconsinCheese.com), you can see all the images and download a recipe brochure.
