These small batch desserts are great If you cook for one or two, because you may not want to eat a whole recipe of cookies, brownies or bars. You'll find single serving desserts and small batch dessert recipes here.
Why make smaller batch desserts
One of the hardest parts of cooking for one is adjusting recipes so you don't have to eat the same meal or dessert day after day. Even as delicious as desserts are, it can be tough throwing away unfinished brownies or cookies.
That's why I want to share this list of single serving and small desserts. Make enough for a couple days or a week and you'll enjoy them without feeling obligated to eat more than you'd like or throwing uneaten desserts away.
In this list you'll find cookies, crisps, a chocolate cake!!, ice cream, brownies, and fruit filled desserts. Desserts for 'one' don't have to lead to mounds of leftovers or only be one mug cake that doesn't end up tasting like a traditional cake.
Single Serving Desserts
Make any of these easy desserts if you need dessert for one night. Milkshakes take just a couple minutes, and the baked desserts take up to 30 minutes, but they're easy and worth the wait.
Small Batch Desserts
Lots of times, it's just not worth it to bake something for 30 minutes for just one serving, that's where these 2-4 serving desserts come into play. Make a couple extra servings for leftovers. Eat through the week or freeze for later.

Thank you for the recipe, it was absolutely delicious and we all loved it!
which one was your favorite?
What a great collection. I am eyeing to try that Mini chocolate cake. I think small batch baking is what we need these days. Most of the baking recipes yield such huge quantities that it’s overwhelming to bake and then finish those.
Thanks for such amazing and delicious recipes and ideas. Have to store them in my best collection. Everything so yum.
This is a perfect collection of delicious desserts. Exactly what I need for just my husband and me!
yay! it's great for 1-2
