We recently celebrated National Chocolate Chip Day—quite possibly one of the sweetest days of the year. Dreaming of finding the best chocolate chip cookie around got us thinking about tiny desserts to hand out after events. Anything sweet is sure to put a smile on guests’ face and give them a lasting memory.

Macarons Not only are these the cutest little desserts (the colors are so eye-popping), but they also are the perfect size for stuffing in a gift bag. Guests will be delighted with the delicious, whimsical French treats.

Cake pops So, maybe these are a little overused, but we’re still in love with how delicious and cute they are. We liken them to lollipops for adults, making guests feel nostalgic.

Mini cupcakes We just can’t get enough cupcakes in our life. They provide so many different varieties (think maple bacon, Nutella and avocado) And you can definitely incorporate chocolate chips into any flavor to celebrate today’s holiday.

Cheesecake bites A classic favorite made to be perfectly portioned. No need to feel guilty or extra full  with these indulgent treats.  

Mini hand pies Truly old-school, these Southern favorites will surprise and delight guests. There are a plethora of options—including savory pies—to please guests.

Doughnut holes These desserts are sure to delight. Found at state fairs and breakfast tables alike, these fried and doughy desserts are simple and delicious. 

If you’re headed to the Dallas area for a family-friendly group outing or conference, you will definitely want to check out Frisco’s newest attraction: KidZania. The 80,000-square-foot experiential learning space allows kids to explore the everyday workdays of firefighters, construction workers, journalists, fashion designers and more.

 

San Antonio restaurant Pharm Table is dedicated to reinventing comfort foods while eliminating those inflammatory ingredients with chronic health implications, such as dairy, wheat and processed sugar. Chef/owner Elizabeth Johnson promotes a largely plant-based diet, with smaller portions of clean animal proteins. She takes much of her inspiration from the ayurvedic diet.

 

San Antonio wholesale grocer Edward Franz Melcher opened Hotel Havana in 1914 as a guest house for his customers. Melcher infused the building with a tropical allure through the use of Mediterranean Revival architecture. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is located on the River Walk. In 2010, it came under the ownership of the hospitality organization Bunkhouse.
