Dessert Buffet

I put out a Facebook plea a few days ago and solicited ideas for a dessert buffet that I am doing for an upcoming party.

My prerequisites:
  1. The food must be portable.  Nothing worse than struggling to balance food with a drink at a cocktail party.
  2. The food must be non-messy.  This is not the time for a trifle or big slices of pie.
  3. The food must be relatively bite-size. One or two bites max. Allows for maximum sampling.
    Here were the awesome suggestions:
    • Thin Mints 
    • Chocolate covered pretzels
    • Macaroons - these are a huge trend right now, because of the variety of colors and their interesting shapes.
    • Mini cheesecakes
    • Mini cupcakes
    • Buckeyes
    • Caramel popcorn
    • Fresh berries
    • Fruit with chocolate ganache dip 
    • Raspberry Linzer squares
    • Key lime tartlets
    • Brownies Bites
    • Mini Pavlovas
    • Fruit Tartlets
    • Fudge
    • Mini Eclairs
    Now I have to start whittling this down to about eight to ten options. Decisions, decisions :-D
