Quick and Easy Recipes for Your Next Gathering
Are you looking for easy appetizers or snacks for that upcoming New Year’s Eve party? If you are anything like me, this new year has snuck up on me and I am looking for something quick and easy to throw together to ring in the New Year.
Come New Year’s Eve, we always go the snack food route. These yummy appetizers are great for pitch-in parties or a low-key celebration at home.
This year I will be whipping up some of my favorite Queso Dip…
Some of this delicious Guacamole…
And a version of one of these yummy spinach dips… either Always Requested Spinach Dip…
Or Baked Artichoke Spinach Dip (or maybe something completely new!)
We also may have a batch of Toffee Almond Puppy Chow for something sweet– haven’t decided yet.
There are few things that yummy up a party snack like bacon.
These Quick Mini Sausage Wraps are always a big hit.
This Zesty Bacon Spread is perfect for a crowd and even a spicy light-weight like myself 😉
Speaking of bacon dip, this Crunchy Bacon-Cheese Dip is delish!
These Pecan Wrapped Blue Cheese Balls take the traditional cheese ball to the next level.
This Nacho Chicken Dip has just 4 ingredients and is a snap to throw together.
Talk about a snap, check out this 2 Minute Appetizer.
Kid Friendly Snacks
Miss Add will be ringing in the New Year with us. Here are a few of her favorite snacks that make for perfect party food.
My little monkey LOVES these Peanut Butter-Banana Roll-Ups.
And, while this Cookie Dough Cheese Ball turns out more like a dip, we love it just the same…
This Caramel Fruit Dip guarantees to have her (and me) munchin’ on apples rather than chips all night.
