Friends, do you ever need a quick dessert recipe? I love little bites around the table, after a big meal, and I think guests love these too.

Lemon Cream Brownie Bites

For these Lemon Cream Brownie Bites, you can have just one, or two …. or three :) They are the perfect dessert to nosh on. [If you have a gluten-free guest coming, make your own Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies with a mini muffin pan!]

Or, a more elegant dessert would be my Lemon Blackberry Bread Pudding with Mascarpone Vanilla Frosting!

Brownie Bites

I love how pretty they are served on your favorite platter!

By the way, I’m in NYC this week and hope to pop over to MacKenzie-Childs. I love their Courtly Check pattern (black and white) and their dishes!

Lemon Brownie Bites easy hosting

Keep forging new relationships

We had a great dinner with friends the other night. One thing we’ve learned about hosting is that we don’t like to waste precious moments with our friends talking about meaningless stuff.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, we discuss a lot, and some pretty funny stories are often shared. But it goes deeper than that. My husband and I are diving in, investing, digging deeper, constantly forging friendships around our table.

Hosting … never a waste of time!

It makes us come alive! Honestly? It can be heavy–you hear something that tugs at your heart, or you sense a disconnection between a couple, you see pain in the eyes of parents who have struggling kids. And then at our age, we hear the weariness in the voices of friends who are caring for elderly parents.

The daily grind is real for everyone! It can wear a person down, and this is why table connection is so important, Friends.

It takes courage to open up and be vulnerable with others.

Which is why I say, hosting is never a waste of time.

How to make Lemon Cream Brownie Bites

Since I know I’m going to be asked, you can freeze the actual brownie (bites) ahead of time. But do not frost and freeze.

They would be best made right before eating. In fact, make up the lemon spread ahead of time. Give one of your guests this job:

  1. Add a dab of lemon cream to each brownie.
  2. Add a berry on top, plus a sprig of mint (optional).
  3. Dust with a sprinkle of salt.
  4. Place in the fridge and pull out when ready to serve!
