If you love dessert in bite-sized portions, then you’re going to love crumb bars.
In my opinion, crumb bars are perfect. I mean they’re adorable and they’re individual-sized bars filled with fruit or jam or other sweet flavors like chocolate. Which means they are great for serving at parties, gatherings or just for helping out with portion control after dinner.
Unlike cakes and pies and pints of ice cream, having one crumb bar seems satisfying to the point where you don’t need to keep going. Although obviously, you could. A crumb bar dessert buffet is another summertime party hit. Just lay a bunch out for everyone to choose from and watch how fast they disappear.
