One aspect of throwing or attending a party that everyone looks forward to is the food. From savory appetizers to sweet desserts, there’s nothing that beats enjoying a plate of delicious food while surrounded by friends and family. For some, however, the idea of making food to bring to a party can be overwhelming. But, it doesn’t have to be! Here are a few easy party treats that are sure to be a hit at your next get together:
- Tortilla pinwheels – Combine eight ounces of cream cheese, two tablespoons of dry ranch dressing mix, and three diced green onions in a bowl. Spread the mixture on a flour tortilla and add a piece of deli meat and cheese on top. Roll up the tortillas, wrap them in saran wrap, and let them set overnight. Cut into one-inch thick slices and enjoy!
- Greek salad skewers – Cut a cucumber into 1/2–inch thick slices and then cut those pieces into quarters. Then, slice eight grape tomatoes and eight pitted Kalamata olives in half and cut four ounces of feta cheese into 16 cubes. Put the tomato, olive, feta, and cucumber on skewers. Drizzle each skewer with olive oil and sprinkle with a little pepper.
- S’mores caramel popcorn – Melt one cup of semisweet chocolate chips and drizzle onto a piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle ½ cup of crushed graham cracker crumbs onto the chocolate. Add eight cups of caramel popcorn and allow the chocolate to harden, then break it into pieces and combine with two cups of mini marshmallows.
These tasty treats are sure to please the guests of any party. Of course, if you’re hosting a get-together at your One 51 Place Alachua, FL apartment, be sure to be courteous of your neighbors and keep the noise at an acceptable level.
