Holiday Salsa - Taste of Home
If you love crackers, cream cheese, and the zest of salsa (and who doesn’t?), this recipe is for you. Sweet, spicy and delightfully creamy, this snack is simple to make and a wonder to eat. With the crunch of the cracker, the softness of the cream cheese, and the bite of the salsa, you may never look at regular cheese and crackers the same way ever again!
Christmas Chex Mix - Ree Drummond
Chex Mix is a party staple - but when you throw in some white chocolate and candy and you’ve got an especially sweet holiday treat! Kids and adults alike, will love this just right sweet and salty mix. Easy prep and cook time make this a perfect choice for family game night. Just make sure to wash those sticky hands!
Rice Krispie Snowballs - Makinze Gore
You can’t go wrong with this festive take on Rice Krispies. Covered in white chocolate and filled with mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, these sweet snowballs are as fun to make as they are to eat. Hopefully, no one starts a Rice Krispie snowball fight!
Mini Cheeseball Bites - Lauren Allen
Continuing our spherical trend, we just love this clever twist on the classic cheese ball. A delightfully retro mid-century party snack, cheeseballs made a comeback in the early 2000’s and continue to evolve. This easy recipe takes the cheesy classic and makes it bite-sized for more variety and convenience. Mini cheese balls with pretzel serving sticks will make sure everyone gets the taste of cheese they want, exactly how they want it!
Bacon Bow Tie Crackers - Sheri Castle
Bacon. Need we say more? The combo of crispy bacon and buttery crackers creates a savory treat that you and your guests won’t be able to get enough of. You might want to make an extra tray of this delicate, crunchy snack that will be the star of your holiday party...or any party!
