So, we know that New Year’s is just around the corner and you’re either one of two kinds of folks: the kind who has been ready for this day for weeks or the one who’s still preparing for the big day. Good thing is, no matter which category you fall into, this post is for you cause you can take this info and tuck it away for a rainy day or you can help that friend who is still taking care of those last minute details.
RED WINE CARAMELIZED ONION GOAT CHEESE TARTLETS
DISCLAIMER : I can tell you now that just about every finger food I bring to the party will involve some form of goat cheese. The following savory bites definitely do. These little numbers not only have goat cheese but also puff pastry. Really can’t go wrong with this one and only takes a few mins to make!
PEAR, PECAN AND GOAT CHEESE WITH HONEY BITES
Again with the cheese but you all were expecting that. Gimme pears with just about anything and it’s a win for me. These are sure to be easy crowd pleasers.
SWEET POTATO GOAT CHEESE BITES
Sweet potatoes. ‘Nuff said.
THE ALL-INCLUSIVE CHARCUTERIE
This party classic always gets my vote and is certainly a crowd-pleaser. What I love about boards is that you don’t have to be uber talented or spend a ton of money to use them at your party (even though you can) and you can throw all kinds of stuff on it that just about everyone is bound to love. That makes this one of my absolute favorite go-to’s.
THE COMMUNAL BOARD
NEW YEAR’S CHOCOLATE BARK
We all know that after the savory it’s time for a little sweet. These two desserts I found via Broma Bakery are my new faves and you know we don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen for new years so these are perfect time savers. Pretty to look at and easy to pop onto a pretty platter and into your mouth!
CHOCOLATE PISTACHIO SPOON MERINGUES
SPICED RUM, FIG AND KOMBUCHA COCKTAIL
If you life kombucha, this one’s for you. If you love spic and fig, this one’s definitely for you. A refreshing and dare I say healthy drink (kombucha), this one will surely surprise friends.
PEAR + GINGER -SAGE CHAMPAGNE
Say cheers with a twist by toasting at midnight with these pear, ginger-sage champagne drinks. A fun way to say hello to 2019.
This non-alcoholic variation is very similar to the one above and of course you can make any fun cocktail you find a non-alcoholic bevvie by simply leaving out the alcohol.
