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. 

In the heart of Hill Country is an annual girls’ getaway. But this one is a little different—it has more than 250 attendees and involves shooting from a helicopter. A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League was founded by Julianna Crowder in 2011 as a way for women to connect with other women who are passionate about shooting and want to learn in a supportive environment. The first two conferences were held in Waco, then moved to Copperhead Creek Shooting Club in Marble Falls.

 

There are many ways to bring a team together, but few that offer the beauty of birdwatching. Beaumont, in particular, is a popular area for groups to go birdwatching and the Beaumont CVB can expertly line-up options. Victor Emanuel Nature Tours (VENT), for example, is a 40-year-old company based in Austin that operates more than 150 birding and natural history tours in Beaumont and other Texas locations, as well as all over the world. More than 350 bird species are spotted in and around Beaumont each year, many of them by corporate groups on team-building outings.
