Arguably the best thing about parties is the food. Noting is worse than attending an event to find that there is no food being offered. Maybe this is more of personal displeasure, but I know I’m not the only one.
If you are planning a get-together, you should have finger foods readily available to your amazing guests. After all, you are hosting them and they deserve to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Here are some ideas on delectable appetizers.
If you eat meat, you most likely enjoy some delicious bacon. There are so many options when it comes to bacon and you will not go wrong with any of them. History has shown us that you can even combine chocolate and bacon and it will be a hit.
From bacon-wrapped asparagus to bacon-wrapped scallops, everyone loves that crispy, salty, lovely strips of heaven. Another favorite of party go-ers are pigs in a blanket. Additionally, a bacon-y spin on these is to wrap your little smokies with bacon instead of bread.
If you’re looking for a spicy option, bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers is another delectable snack. Incorporating cheeses with bacon is usually a sure-fire hit. You can also do bacon-wrapped cream cheese bites that are sure to make your guests smile.
Most folks love cheese. Even half of the lactose-intolerant population still loves cheese and simply just deal with the pain. What makes cheese even better? Anything. Anything you add to cheese is probably going to taste awesome.
Adding some spicy pepper jelly to a deliciously cheesy dip will shock your guests and have them asking you for the recipe. Making pepper jelly dip is not only a great way to provide a crowd-pleaser, but it is also made for little money.
With this recipe, you simply need cream cheese, spicy pepper jelly, and whatever you would like to dip into it. Just leave the cream cheese on the counter to thaw out so it’s nice and soft, mix a few tablespoons of pepper jelly in, and give it a nice stir in your mixer or by hand. You’re left with a quick, enjoyable dip for your partiers.
No party is complete without dessert. Once again, just like cheese, most folks love chocolate. Instead of making regular old brownies, go for mini ones that are poppable and fun. Try some new varieties of brownies as well.
You can choose between peanut butter-filled brownies, brownies with M&Ms, or even do both! Additionally, you can always combine the blondie and brownie recipes and make a delicious marble dessert.
Enjoy your mini brownies with some dipping sauces. You can have strawberry compote, sweet icing, caramel, or hot fudge to dunk the brownies in. Your guests will not be complaining about these mini bits of chocolate.
These suggestions are just a scratch on the surface of party appetizers that are sure to please your company. The trick is to find less-common appetizers if you’re seeking to serve food that is not only delicious but different from your traditional finger foods. Keep an open mind when you plan your food for your event. And yes, you must serve your guests food, it’s the best part of a party.
