Party On A Ritz: Mini Pecan Pie Bites

These mini pecan pie bites are melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness that you can whip up in no time for a party or just because! 

Mini Pecan Pie Bites

While I love where I’m from, I also love traveling. The best part about living where I am is that it’s really easy to travel. Whether it’s by car, train, or plane. However there’s one destination I’ve never been. And that’s the southern US. I’ve dreamt of visiting but have never pulled the trigger and planned a vacation down south. But that doesn’t mean its not on our list in the near future.

And when I’m ready, I know Southwest flies to multiple destinations in the south. That means I get to keep track of Southwest sales that hit my inbox to keep an eye on flight prices. If a good price comes up I may just snag it even for a long weekend trip.

One thing I look forward to when I visit the south is the various foods I’ve heard so much about. I have a little confession to make. I never tried pecan pie until about two-three years ago when it was brought to Thanksgiving by one of the relatives. Pumpkin was usually the only option growing up so that’s what I ate. So when I had the chance ot try it, I jumped on it. And fell in love with it.

Since pecans are grown in the south, my easy no-bake party dessert was inspired by this destination. Yeah, that’s right, no-bake dessert! And bite size so it’s perfect for parties.
