Simple Party Food Recipes

Some of my favorite party foods are also some of the simplest recipes I know. It’s so fun to make something that looks and tastes good and only takes minutes to prepare. Here are a few party food recipes for your consideration.

Cheesy Chili– This was a standard offering at all the graduation receptions, open houses, and wedding showers I ever attended as a young person.

Dump two cans of chili in your crock-pot. Add half a block of Velveeta cheese. Turn it on low for two to three hours. Serve with tortilla chips. You can add salsa for more of a kick.

Baked Cheese Pastry with Crackers (savory)– This is very tasty and looks fancy, but couldn’t be easier to make!

Open a can of pre-made crescent rolls. Roll it out into a rectangle (Do not separate the individual crescent rolls). Place a block of cream cheese in the center of the dough, and then wrap it like a gift. Bake at 375 until the pastry has just barely browned and the cream cheese is soft (approximately 10-12 minutes). Serve slices with wheat thins or other crackers.

Baked Cheese Pastry (sweet)– Try this sweet variation. You will need two containers of crescent roll dough.

Roll out one can of crescent roll dough. Place (room temperature) cream cheese block in a bowl and mix with 1 cup powdered sugar. Cream until smooth. Spread the mixture on to the dough. Add the  additional layer of rolled out dough on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 375 for approximately 10-12 minutes.

Chocolate Acorns– Food is always fun when it looks like something else.

Frost the bottom of a Hershey’s kiss with icing or peanut butter. Stick a miniature vanilla wafer on top of the frosting. Make a small peanut butter stem on top of the wafer. It looks like an acorn!

Green Tea Lemonade– Good parties need fun drinks.

Brew a pot of green tea. Use two regular tea bags for three to five cups of boiling water. In a separate pitcher, prepare lemonade. After the tea brews, refrigerate it until it cools. Mix the two drinks to taste.
