These 5 easy, festive appetizers are perfect for any holiday party! They all have 5 ingredients or less, and take less than 20 minutes to make! They’re so photogenic, you’ll find them decorating your guest’s Instagram feeds before they even leave the party!
I love festive appetizers but they can often border on silly, or even unappetizing. Large stacks of goat cheese ball snowmen that no one can eat, strange Santa heads, confusing mixtures of ingredients like strawberry and mozzarella… “cute” and “corny” can be a fine line to walk.
I tried my best to keep these cute, but classy. Playful, but elegant. I also wanted them all to be special, but none to stick out. All but one contain lovely whipped cream cheese, but if you were serving them all together, I would suggest mixing it up.
Feel free to substitute cream cheese for rindless brie, triple creams, herbed Boursin, ricotta, or whipped cream cheese mixed with other flavors like jalapeño or onion and chive! You can even mix in a little pesto into a whipped cheese to make it extra exciting!
