How to Shrink Your Favorite Desserts

Can't decide what dessert to serve at your next gathering? Classic treats like creme brulee or chocolate cream pie are always a hit — but who has room for a giant slice of something sweet after a comforting home-cooked meal? Food Network Kitchen's solution: Shrink it. Well, not literally. But with a few tricks, you can prepare teeny-tiny versions of your favorite over-the-top desserts; that way, you and your guests can have it all.
