Small Batch Easter Desserts
With just the two of us at home, I often find myself making small batch desserts for us to enjoy for special occasions. These particular recipes are great choices for a small Easter gathering or some other springtime celebration.
I hope you’ll found some Easter dessert inspiration among these recipes. If you’re hosting a larger gathering, then be sure to see my collection of favorite Easter desserts for a crowd. Whether your celebration is small or a bit larger, I wish you a very happy Easter!
Tips for Small Batch Baking
While the general rules of baking always apply, there are a few things to keep in mind when making small batch recipes.
Measure accurately. This is always a must in baking, but errors in measuring will likely be amplified with small quantities of ingredients.
Use the correct pans. Check the pan size needed for the recipe, as some small batch recipes need non-standard pans.
Use quality ingredients. Good quality ingredients will shine in your desserts!
How to Make an Intimate Holiday Special
A small gathering or even just a day spent with your partner is every bit as special as a holiday with lots of family and friends. Here are some things to consider to help make it even more special and memorable.
Plan a special menu. Choose things you know are favorites or go with some foods that are a little more effort than your usual fare.
Think about presentation. Take the extra time to add garnishes or focus on presentation for your food.
Decorate. This can be as simple or as involved as you want. Add a few touches to your table to fit the Easter theme. Even just some pretty napkins can dress up your table.
Dress up! Just because it’s a small gathering doesn’t mean you can’t dress up.

Small Batch Easter Desserts
In this list, you'll find some of the best small-batch dessert recipes that are perfect for celebrating the holiday with your loved ones.
This Mixed Berry Cream Cheese Crisp is a lovely dessert for a few. I like to change the berries depending on what's available, making this quite a versatile recipe. Just add ice cream or sweetened whipped cream!
Both pudding and vanilla tend to be undervalued in the dessert world. But there's not much better than homemade Vanilla Pudding. Make individual servings topped with whipped cream and fresh berries for a wonderfully delicious dessert!
With just four ingredients, you can make this easy Chocolate Mousse with little effort. If you're hosting some of your favorite chocolate lovers, this smooth, creamy, chocolate-y treat is a great choice for dessert. Bonus points for being a great make-ahead dessert, too!
I just adore these Dark Chocolate Bourbon Bread Puddings for Two! The flavor is, of course, amazing. But I also love that they're prepped in advance so you can just pop them in the oven when you're ready for dessert.
If there are just two of you for Easter, I highly recommend these Blueberry Crumbles. They're wonderfully easy to make and so very good. A little scoop of ice cream on top, and you're destined for empty bowls!
If you're craving some chocolate, these Individual Chocolate Icebox Pies are a wonderful choice. They're cool, creamy, and fantastically delicious. You can make these beauties a day or two in advance, as well.
If you enjoy small-batch baking, then you likely have the same affinity that I do for 6-inch cake pans. They're just the right size for making little cakes like this Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting! Seasonal sprinkles on top easily turn this one into an Easter treat!
Easter just happens to coincide with the time of year I want to bake with ALL the berries! These Mini Skillet Mixed Berry Pies are as delicious as they are adorable. You can use mini skillets or mini pie pans to make these beauties.
I have such a weakness for these Flourless Chocolate Cakes for Two! These little guys are all about the chocolate, and that suits me just fine. Add in the fact that they're easy to make, and there's a whole lot to love here.
