Easy Mini Dessert Recipes Perfect for New Year’s Eve

Ring in 2024 on a sweet note with these easy mini-dessert recipes perfect for your New Year’s Eve party. These bite-sized desserts are decadent and can be made in advance for your guests to enjoy at the end of their meal.

1. Mini Boston Cream Pies

What could be a better mini dessert than pudding sandwiched between wafers, with rich chocolate ganache drizzled on top? Sounds tempting, right? So, make this mini-dessert for your guests this New Year’s Eve

2. Mini Cranberry Apple Pies

Instead of baking one big pie and dividing it into slices, make this mini cranberry apple pie for your guests. If you don’t like cranberry, you can replace it with strawberry or some other fruit filling. You can make the dough from scratch or use store-bought pie crust to save time in the kitchen.

3. Mini S’mores Tarts

Chocolate tarts are a favorite of many. However, instead of going with the traditional recipe this time, make mini chocolate ganache marshmallow tarts with baked graham cracker crumbs as the base layer. You can prepare the base days before your NYE party and pipe in the filling on the day of your party.
