12 Festive Christmas Appetizer Recipes that are easy to make are the perfect way to start any holiday celebration! From finger food, and savory cheese balls to spicy snacks, and delicious dips, this collection will keep everyone in a holly, jolly mood.
Every Christmas and New Year, I look forward to sharing my favorite appetizer recipes. I love any and all kinds of party food especially when the holiday season arrives.
This year, I’m making sure to keep things on the simple side. Most of the recipes in this collection can be made ahead of time which for me is always a plus. I’ll be serving several of these appetizers for Christmas Eve and as a start to my Christmas Day meal. I plan on making a few for New Year’s Eve and having snack mixes for New Year’s Day. This is one hard-working list of appetizer recipes that will definitely bring a whole lot of happiness to my holiday celebrations!
A few of my favorite things…
When it’s time to celebrate Christmas and serve a few appetizers, I like to make things a little bit fancy while keeping it fun. Here are a few things I like to use:
- a slow cooker fondue pot for serving hot dips.
- pretty napkins.
- stone boards with pretty knives.
- wooden boards that are used almost every day during the holidays.
- dishwasher-safe wine glasses that can be used for any kind of beverage.
Thanks for this wonderful post, Donya – am making THREE of these appetizers for Christmas this year (pimento cheese cups, millionaire dip and spicy cheese cracker snack mix!)
