Everyone loves the Chocolatey goodness of Texas Sheet Cake Bites! I think it’s the best way to enjoy this dessert or any mini dessert really because you can grab and go! Yum!
Hi, this is Chrissy from The Taylor House! I have been contributing and collaborating with Jenn from Princess Pinky Girl for years and I am so excited to share my Texas Sheet Cake Bites with you today!
Texas Sheet Cake has always been one of my absolute favorite desserts. It’s a simple chocolate cake with a ganache frosting that’s incredibly moist and delicious.
It’s usually one of my go-to desserts when I’m cooking for a crowd because it can serve so many.
A few weeks ago I had a little get together with some friends and thought it would be fun to turn one of my favorite desserts into a mini bite-sized treat.
It’s always nice to have small desserts and portions for when I get the ladies together. We’re much more likely to have dessert when it’s only one or two bites, right?
