Many of us are quite ready indeed to kiss 2016 goodbye. Let’s face it guys, we made it, and we still have friends; we should feast! To help celebrate your survival of 2016, here are 25 Delicious Recipes To Help Ring In The New Year. We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.
Mini S’Mores Tarts
If you want to make a “test” batch of these to devour before your party, just to, um, make sure they turn out okay, we’re not judging. All the sweet tasty glory of Smores, none of the second degree burns on the roof of your mouth from hot marshmallows.
Gluten Free Cheddar Hushpuppies
Hushpuppies supposedly got their name because they were thrown to yappy dogs during the Civil War to hush them up. No one knows for sure if that’s true or not, but what we do know for sure is that these are delicious, gluten free, and can be baked instead of fried if you wish. Also there’s cheese, which is always worth mentioning.
Glitter Dipper Fortune Cookie Party Favors
If you’d like to let your guests go with a favor to bring them luck (and sweetness!) in the new year, these are a beautiful and clever option that take very little time.
Raw Chocolate Raspberry Slice
Who said that eating vegan/raw can’t include tasty desserts? These are a good bet if you know someone has dietary restrictions as they’re egg and gluten free too, and if you’re used to cooking raw or vegan, you likely already have these ingredients hanging around your kitchen. Take a batch to share at a party, or cut them into small bites and insert a fancy sparkly toothpick.
No Bake Strawberry Champagne Cheesecake
Strawberries and Champagne are classic sweet flavors that go together, and cheesecake is delicious with everything, so why not combine the three? In bite size? And why would you wait for New Year’s Eve to do so? At parties, everyone remembers the cheesecake. Be that person, the person with the food everyone remembers fondly.
If these look delicious, wait until you see number 9!
