a trio of mini desserts- ode to the sweet tooth

A super simple dessert that requires just a bit of imagination and some small size portions!  I think of this dessert for all those cooks who hate to bake, and there are a lot of them.

My sweet trio can be composed of homemade items but makes as much of an impact if all the sweets come straight from the bakery.  I like that all three desserts add up to one dessert- you want to slice, scoop and pour is smaller portions, plus it makes for such a nice display.

Take a plate, put on a few brownies bites, add your favorite cookie with some seasonal berries.  Then right before serving fill a small glass with root beer and add scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Voila!  Oh that is too French because this one is all American….but you can make a French version.

How about a sliver of apple Galette, a dabble of whipped cream on an espresso cup-size hot chocolate with a mini vanilla Eclair?  How about a small ice cream sundae, a snip of apple pie and a few pieces of chili-infused chocolate?  Or a mini chocolate milk shake with warm peanut butter cookies?

Next time, I am making an Italian version with a portion of Tiramisu, a decaf affogata (ice cream drowned in espresso) and an almond biscotti.   The options are endless and can be so much fun to think up!

Easy, easy, easy and really a new way to end any meal.
