I have no idea what Smores are or Snickerdoodles but it sounds fabulous!

Cheese cake pops? Haven’t used this recipe but I tried some oreo and strawberry ones at a bridal show and they were AWESOME

BTW- maybe you already know but if you coat anything in chocolate (like the strawberries or cake pops) i wouldn’t refridgerate it because it makes the choc sweat… it’s ok to leave at room temp for a day.

@Miss Sparklespaniel: haha at first I was like “how can you not know?! That is so un-American”, then I realized you are in fact, not American, so it makes sense, haha! Smores are a toasted marshmallow and a square of chocolate sandwiched inbetween two pieces of graham cracker. Snickerdoodles are vanilla flavored sugar cookies with sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top.

What about Whoopie Pies! You can make the cake rounds ahead of time and just assemble them the day before. I have used a great recipe from food network before

Cannolis – the filling is east to make and you can buy the shells

Cheesecake squares of any kind

Good ol’ rice crispy treats!  And blondies and macaroons.  I also like oreo truffles.  Just throw ground up oreos and softened cream cheese in a food processor and roll the mixture into balls.  Refridgerate for a while to get them firm and then dip them in chocolate.  You could dye white chocolate your wedding colors to make them extra festive.

Oops sorry, just noticed you said OTHER than cookies. How about little fruit tarts? You could make or buy mini shells, mix up a cream filling and then top with berry or other fruits? Paula Deen has a good recipe, you could just size it down to individual tarts instead of 1 large.


Fudge is also SUPER easy to make with a condensed milk recipe, and you could do it more than one day ahead. Lots of easy variations to mix up the flavor or color: http://www.eaglebrand.com/recipes/details/?RecipeId=3968&category=-1

And for something not chocolate, I think lemon bars are yum, and pretty easy. Can also make with lime instead. Barefoot Contessa has a great recipe:

this might be a bit more work, but what about covering apples in caramel/chocolate and serving up slices on the buffet?  definitely something a bit different than the typical brownies and cookies.

If you are doing strawberry shortcake in a shot glass, try Tiramisu also. Gordon Ramsey has an easy recipe and you can modify it easy enough to fit your small glass as opposed to the size called for. Best of luck!

Key Lime Pie has to be the hands-down easiest dessert ever! You could probably make cute little key lime tarts using a muffin tin too, if you wanted individual desserts.

I also vote for cheesecake, since its better made a day or two ahead and given time to chill.

What about some homemade vanilla icecream with a toppings bar? Have different fruit toppings (I have a great/easy recipe for an Italian citrus sauce topping if you want it), or crumbled candybar toppings, fudge, etc.

I’m doing a dessert table too… Here are my ideas so far

I want everything to be “mini”

  • Mini pecan tassies
  • Mini ice cream “cake ball” pops 


  • mini strawberry cheesecakes
  • mini red velvet balls
  • mini cupcakes
  • petit fours

I may have a few jars of candy on the table to in my wedding colors along with the treat bags.

Cake balls are awesome and not a lot of people have had these so I think they would wow your guests and allow them to have something unique.
