If you've recently been invited to a friend's dinner party, you may be looking for something you can bring for your hosts. Of course, unless it's a potluck, all of the cuisine will be accounted for, which pretty much means your options are a bottle of wine or dessert. Either will undoubtedly be appreciated, but your safest bet is probably an after-dinner treat.
There's actually a fair bit of variety when it comes to single-serving desserts, which means you'll have no problem finding something unique that everyone will enjoy. But just in case you needed a little guidance, here are a few ideas to help inspire you.
You can't go wrong with chocolate truffles. What's great about these scrumptious little nuggets is that one box contains many different flavors. It's kind of fun, huddling together with the flavor sheet and deciphering what each piece will taste like. Or, you could simply have everyone pick whichever truffle looks best to them and see how it works out. Who knows, maybe one of your friends will discover an innate love for coconut. Who said you can't play with your food?
If you'd like to meander your way off the beaten dessert path, however, there are enough alternatives to make doing so a simple task. For instance, you may consider bringing a box of chocolate strawberries. There's an undeniable appeal to these treats. They're classy and indulgent at the same time and are sure to go over well. Chocolate dipped strawberries come with a number of different toppings, so there'll be something for everyone, whether they prefer white or dark chocolate, chocolate chips or chopped almonds.
Or, how about some brownie pops? Chances are, most of your guests haven't had the pleasure of trying these out - and it's about time they did. Rich, delectable brownies are covered in a sweet, sugary shell, creating an irresistible combination that everyone is going to want to try out. They come with a number of different designs, so you can wow your friends with brownie pops decorated to resemble zoo animals or sports balls. There are even Halloween shapes available, if you'd like something a bit more seasonal. Whatever you decide, it's hard to say no to dessert, so don't be afraid to get creative.
