Food brings people together. It is an expression of our culture, heritage or a reflection of our childhood memories. Many times food is the centerpiece of the celebration, like the cake in a birthday party or the treats in Halloween. Other times it is the perfect conversation starter. So what is the best food to share at a party? With the Holidays approaching, we will all be looking for that perfect appetizer or a decadent dessert to dazzle our friends. Here are some of the best food to share with your family, friends or loved ones:
Finger foods are incredibly popular at parties. They are easy to pick-up and eat, especially if you are holding a drink in your hand! Usually they are not complicated to make and can be arranged beautifully on a plate. You can try these Spinach Spanish Croquettes, Jalapeño Poppers, Poblano Potato Taquitos, Deviled Potatoes, and these Cauliflower Wings.
Dips and Spreads
There’s nothing easier than making a dip and bringing it to a party. We all love crunchy chips and these are the perfect dipping sauces and spreads for your hungry friends. You can’t go wrong with this Spinach Artichoke Dip, Roasted Garlic Guacamole, Spicy Queso Dip, Classic Hummus or this Chimichurri White Bean Dip.
Vegan Cheese Balls
We are bringing back the iconic ’70’s cheese balls. A cheese ball shouldn’t be too complicated so it doesn’t take away time from the rest of the party planning. You can also make your cheese ball into a party platter with bread, nuts, dried fruits, and jams. Your friends will love these amazing flavors Cranberry and Thyme, Jalapeño Cheddar Cheese, and Sriracha and Lime.
Tarts, Cookies, or Mini-Desserts
Mini desserts are so irresistibly delicious and beautiful that they are usually the most popular food to share. There are so many possibilities, it’s hard to choose just one. You have to try these No-bake Peanut Butter Cookies, Chocolate and Coconut Moonballs, Chocolate Almond Butter Fudge bars, and Coconut Macaroons.
