Mignardises

Mignardises
Small sweet tid-bits served at the end of the meal (after dessert), usually with coffee. It's derived from the old French word, "Mignard" which means either small child, or graceful, pretty and delicate.

What healthypig said is what I usually think of as well. Although in many places/restaurants, the words are used interchangeably. Friandises (which is French for morsel or tidbit) can be used as well.
