The Only Party Snacks You Need

I don’t know about you, but when it comes time for a party, I always have the worst time deciding what kind of food to have. Whether I am hosting people at my house or bringing a dish to share somewhere else, it takes me about 5 years, 26 days, and 52 hours to make a decision. There are just so many good choices, aren’t there?! Then I head over to Pinterest and get even more indecisive because, whoa. Too many possibilities! So I went ahead and did you a favor – I’ve rounded up the best of the best party snacks! We have amazing dips, great hot appetizers, even a few sweet treats – everything you could want to chow down on!
You’re welcome.


Bacon Dip is the ultimate, ultimate party food. With an entire pound of bacon in there, and a whole lotta cheese as well, you won’t want to stop eating this. Make sure you have plenty of friends to share with.
Real Cheese Queso Dip – See ya later Velveeeta! We’ve got real cheese queso in the house!!!
Chunky Avocado Salsa is the best of both worlds – guacamole and salsa combined into one awesome dip!

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Dip is a super fast yet super tasty (and healthy!) dip for veggies, chips, or whatever!

Crispy Sweet Potato Fries with Spicy Lime Dipping Sauce are a fun and healthy alternative to chips and dip. The sweet potato fries are crispy, and that sauce is ah-maze-ing!


Loaded Baked Potato Dip is everything you want in a party snack. It warm, gooey, cheesy. Plus, bacon!

The Best Fruit Dip is a total winner! Low in sugar, healthy yogurt, but oh so delicious!

Hot Appetizers

Brown Sugar Baked Wings with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce are great whether you serve them as an appetizer or as a meal – they are sweet and slightly spiced and the dipping sauce is killer.
Party Meatballs with Harissa are spicy, bold, and deeply flavored. These will go quickly!!

Snacks by the Handful

Peanut Butter Popcorn is a sweet treat that will vanish quickly. Its sweet and sticky, and makes a giant batch!

Ranch Seasoned Oyster Crackers are a fun and addictive treat! Make a big batch!

Fried Pickles are one of my favorite appetizers (especially if they are spicy!) and if you aren’t afraid of frying things yourself, they are pretty easy to make, too!


So there you have it! Tell me – what is your favorite snack/appetizer to munch on during a party or game?

    Mmmm! They ALL sound so good! We may need to make the loaded baked potato dip. . . Or maybe the crispy sweet potato fries & lime dip! Oh, man!
