A New Way to Party: Easy Individual Desserts for A Crowd
The days in and following a pandemic can always be a little nutty. They change life as we know it in ways we wouldn’t expect. One of those big ways is in entertaining.
I’m not here to get into a debate about masking or social distancing – we are all grown-ups here, right? But, life goes on and parties still happen.
Yet, there’s a way to do it that’s safe for your guests without diminishing the experience of socializing.
A big factor has been how we serve food. While sit-down occasions used to be considered the ‘classy choice,’ many are opting for self-serve, buffet-style tables in order to allow guests to space themselves out and eat and drink at their leisure.
It provides more opportunities for mingling and grazing, less being weighed down with a heavy meal, more opportunities to sample all the yummy food!
I’ve always been a big fan of the buffet, but it you want to take safety even a little further, how about single-serving food items? Appetizers are certainly one way to do it, and for sure, desserts are right up there with them.
