Often called pick-ups, hand-held desserts are gaining popularity over traditional big cakes. They require no plates and there’s no need for the kids to sit down! Here are some trendy small treats to consider for your Mitzvah celebration menu:

The French Confection

Not to be confused with the Passover treats we know and love, French meringue cookies come in as many colors and flavors as you can dream up!

Pick Up Sticks

Dessert gets playful with plain pastry wands dipped in a variety of toppings.

Stick ‘Em Up

Marshmallows skewered and dipped become pretty pops that aren’t sticking around a long time.

Look, Ma. No Fork! 

An apple pie that requires no slicing or plate!

Corny Cups

Flavored popcorns with sweet mix-ins can travel with guests in mini tins or paper sacks.

Filling Station

Guests fill cream puffs with custard or icing for a DIY grab and get-back-on-the-dance-floor treat.

Snap, Crackle, POP!

Emojis, soccer balls, jewels… cake pops work with any theme!
