Good things come in small packages and that is certainly true in the FRESH bakery. A beautiful assortment of miniature desserts are always on display and this is the perfect time of year to indulge in some sweet treats.
I’m the occasional baker but, during the very busy month of December, I often rely on FRESH to help me out with dessert. I can’t even imagine how much time and practice it would take to create something so beautiful, delicious and delicate as the Salted Caramel Delight or the perfectly crafted Key Lime Pies.
On more than one occasion, I have used an assortment of FRESH desserts to create a delicious after dinner platter of sweet treats. The presentation is always beautiful and everyone is impressed with the exquisite selection. Plus, it satisfies the appetite of each guest. Some like chocolate, others sweet and creamy and those who want just one sweet bite always love the French Macarons or the Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Each one is like a personalized gift for everyone at the table.
Here are a few of my favorites that will please any sweet tooth:
Mini Key Lime Pie: Graham cracker crust topped with zesty key lime filling with Swiss meringue on top.
Cheesecake Bites: A classic in bite size form. Rich, creamy cheesecake filling topped on graham cracker crust. (Also available in other holiday-themed flavors.)
Salted Caramel Delight: Rich chocolate cake, dark chocolate mousse, rich caramel and peanuts glazed with a milk chocolate ganache.
The Bombe: Mousse filled with crème brulee, ladyfingers, glazed with chocolate mirror and topped with gold flakes.
Pecan Chocolate Chunk Brownie: Brownies with toasted pecans and chocolate chunks topped with creamy caramel and mixed nuts.
Strawberry Tiramisu Cups: Everything you love about tiramisu with strawberry flavors. Sweet ladyfingers layered with strawberries and a velvety mascarpone mixture in a chocolate cup.

Inside Out German Chocolate: Dark German chocolate filled with chocolate mousse and lightly layered with shaved, toasted coconut.
Mini Cannoli: A staple of Sicilian cuisine. Perfectly fried pastry dough filled with sweet, creamy ricotta filling.
Peanut Butter Cup: Chocolate cups filled with rich peanut butter topped with a mini peanut butter cup for a sweet and salty treat.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries: Fresh, sweet strawberries lightly dipped in chocolate for melt in your mouth flavor.
