The Tasty Pinterest Roundup: Single Serve Desserts

[ 1 ] March 20, 2013 |

The Tasty Pinterest Recipe Roundup by @shrinkingkitchn - our favorite, healthy food finds for the week! http://shrinkingkitchen.com

 

Sometimes you just need dessert. And sometimes, that’s okay! You should indulge every once in a while. My problem is that if I make a batch of cookies or a pan of brownies, I have a hard time stopping at just five one.

And that’s why I adore single serving desserts – you have to stop at one because there’s JUST ONE. It really simplifies things, you know?

I’ve made what I like to call ‘desperation cake’ a few times – it’s 3 tablespoons of cake mix mixed with 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt and microwaved for a minute – and that works well in a pinch. But I wanted to see what else is out there…and I decided the place to go was, of course, Pinterest.

Holy schnikes, I found some amazing recipes! Some are healthy, some are a little indulgent. Some go in the microwave, some the oven, some are no bake. But the bottom line is, you’re making a finite amount – you can take care of your craving and that’s that.

You can thank me later :)
