I’m partial to any diet that recommends eating sweet treats but in smaller portions than usual.
Since my “usual” portion is an entire box of cookies or pan of brownies, this goal is easy to attain. Of course, what they really mean are mini portions and you’ll be surprised at how many different kinds of desserts are available in small shapes and sizes. They’re a great way to sample desserts when you can’t decide which one you want. Each of these ten tempting mini desserts will surely satisfy your sweet tooth and leave room for more … as long as you don’t eat the whole plate.
