Annie Lou's Chocolate Meringue Tarts


Here's our new favorite way to eat dessert

By making your favorite desserts bite-sized, you can have your cake and eat it too — just think of them as a mini-indulgence! 

Here are three of our favorite mini treats to get you through the week. 

Annie Lou's Chocolate Meringue Tarts
These little tarts are the perfect way to satisy a chocolatey craving without committing to the whole pie. Using pre-made pastry shells makes whipping up these mini tarts that much easier, but if you'd like to make your own, we love our easy as, well, pie dough recipe

Buttermilk Pralines
A healthy portion of pecans makes this little indulgence seem not so sinful; feel free to switch out the pecans for your favorite nut to suit your mood. The first time making these sticky snacks can be a little tricky — using two spoons will help ensure perfectly sized portions and minimal messes.

Quick Beignets
Nothing really beats a beignet. Fluffy, fried and covered in a healthy amount of powdered sugar, these little fritters will go fast! Our version makes quick work of an otherwise all-day recipe and can easily be scaled up, making this a crowd favorite at parties or a party of one — you deserve it.
