Chocolate Chip Cookies, Fauxstess Cupcakes & Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
Nothing says "party!" like miniature treats. Don't believe me? Think about the last time you had some: cocktail smokies, meatballs, finger sandwiches, mini quiche or petit fours. It wasn't Tuesday night dinner with the family, was it? Didn't think so. When you need to nibble on something while trying to balance a plastic plate, napkin, fork and beverage (all the while trying to be graceful, trying to avoid dumping your whole plate on the host's new carpet and/or embarrassing yourself in front of that guy/gal you're hoping to impress), small foods are the perfect solution. Small desserts are even better, because there's room to sample one of each!
Chocolate Chip Cookies - I made 48 miniature cookies with a quarter batch of dough. Make friends with your digital kitchen scale and calculator. ♥
Fauxstess Cupcakes - Using this recipe (can use regular milk instead of soy), I got 6 regular and 24 mini cupcakes. Fill with this filling (you need less than half the batch), and dip cupcake tops in canned chocolate frosting that's been melted for 15 seconds in the microwave.
Cinnamon Sugar Mini Donuts - I poured the batter into a greased mini donut pan and got 36.
