Small Batch Dessert Recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth in a BIG WAY. Cookies, cake, brownies, sangria, monkey bread...everything in single-serve size!

As you all know I have a MAJOR sweet tooth. If left to my own devices, I’d eat an entire tray of brownies or cookies without batting an eyelash. But wait – NOW I CAN – when it’s a SMALL BATCH brownie, that is. Make a smaller portion size of your favorite cookies, cakes, and breakfast treats so that if you slip up and eat it all…that’s okay! Portion control can be a very good thing.

From skillet cookies and brownies to mug cookies, cupcakes, and coffee cake and even cinnamon rolls and sangria – these 15 small batch dessert recipes have something for EVERYONE!

  1. Hey there!! I appreciate so much these smaller recipes. Its just my husband and ,myself so therefore we don’t eat a large amount. So, I am anxious to try these. Thank you so much. Will let you know how I make out. I have an 8 inch , but am anxious to get the 6 inch size. Have a good day!

  2. Thank you so much for these small batch recipes. As a family of 4 (my twins are 12, 13 in July. Yikes! Happy birthday to your daughter, Jordan!), with a husband who travels a LOT, these are the perfect size for the kids & me. Plus, we live in a fairly small apartment in Germany so very little storage and refrigerator space. These recipes are ideal because the results will be gobbled up right away. Yay! ?

  3. Omg! Made your copycat peanut butter mountain bars yesterday. Gone before lunch. The neighbors even came in and went out with a plate of them. It was crazy! I know the kids are hoping I make them again this morning. People were literally writhing on the floor! We don’t have that kind of candy here in Kansas, but now we have yours. Thanks!
