These puff pastry bundles are easy to make and switch up with different fillings. Make them with ham and Swiss cheese, or swap them out to change the flavor. They make a great snack for parties, or pair them with a bowl of soup or a salad for an easy dinner.
A beautifully assembled cheeseboard goes a long way to win friends and influence people at parties plus it’s an easy no-cook way to serve a lot of snacks at once. I put together a guide to help you assemble your own edible piece of art using products you can find at your regular grocery store.
These pinwheels are so simple to make and a great appetizer when you need something easy to make. I like to use whipped cream cheese because it’s easy to spread without having to wait for a block of cream cheese to soften. Also, these are best when they have a chance to chill in the refrigerator before serving, so plan to make these up to a day in advance.

You only need four ingredients to make this everything bagel dip and it takes all of ten minutes to start to finish. Everything bagel seasoning and fresh green onions flavor the creamy dip made with cream cheese and sour cream. Add your favorite crackers and veggies for an easy appetizer or snack.
Cowboy caviar combined with creamy guacamole is a quick and easy dip recipe loaded with fresh flavors. It has avocado, beans, corn, peppers, tomatoes, and fresh lime juice all mixed up and ready for a big bowl of tortilla chips to go with it.
These garlic parmesan fries are so easy thanks to store-bought frozen french fries. All you do is doctor them up with a few ingredients like garlic-infused olive oil, freshly grated parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley.
Inspired by the fast-food chicken sandwiches you can’t get on Sundays, these little crispy chicken sliders are a baked take on the original fried version. Plus, they are miniaturized because, well, mini food is more fun.
If you’re craving pizza, get one of those big soft loaves of bread in the bakery section, load it up with all of your favorite pizza toppings, pop it under the broiler, and slice it up for a super easy snack. No delivery or tip required.
This dip is an easy appetizer recipe. You can make it a day in advance and serve it with crackers or chips. Or, use it as a spread to make pinwheels, sandwiches, or wraps. It has all of the flavors of bacon-wrapped jalapeno wrappers but served up cold and creamy as a dip instead.
Whoever thought to pluck the stems from mushrooms and fill the space with a savory cheese filling deserves a prize. The recipe is an easy one (and totally customizable) and it seems stuffed mushrooms never go out of style – they are always a party favorite.
Black bean hummus with a kick of spicy, smoky chipotle peppers and topped with pico de gallo is a twist on a traditional hummus recipe. Combine everything in a food processor, blend and serve with tortilla chips, pita, vegetable sticks, or crackers for an easy appetizer or snack.
