It’s safe to say that we all get hit with a sweet tooth every once in a while. Whenever those sugar cravings hit, it can be tempting to pile our plates with cookies and candies galore. While we’re all for indulging ourselves here and there, sometimes too many sweets can cause a stomachache or, even worse, give us (or the kids) a sugar rush before bed.

Rather than say “no” to your sweet tooth, try satisfying it with a scaled-down version of your favorite treats. You’ll still get your dessert fix — minus the upset stomach. Here are a few of our favorite pre-portioned mini desserts to help curb your sugar cravings.
