Just a sweet little something to top off any meal at all and make it special — from breakfast to dinner! These party-pretty bites are as easy to make as they are delicious. Try them as a refreshing fruit appetizer, too.

Starting with packaged cheese cubes hurries along this lovely display. But trim your grocery bill by buying blocks of cheese and cutting them yourself, and trim time by using plain walnut or pecan halves instead of making the Candied Walnuts. Cost: $38.16
We stacked 12-inch, 10-inch and 8-inch cake plates to create this tiered display.
