Easy Holiday Party Recipes

M&M Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I love to bake, but since I have a small family, I usually end up eating most everything myself. So that means, time to have a party so others can gain weight with me! ha! So tonight I’m having a casual, last-minute party to celebrate Christmas.

Along with cute printable decor, I’ll also be serving up some of my favorite appetizers, desserts and drinks. I thought I would share some of the easy recipes that I’ll be serving tonight to help you with your party planning.

antipasto recipe

Guests will love this Anipasto Bake recipe that I got from my sister-in-law from Boston.


Baked Brie Recipe

Can I just say easiest and fanciest looking appetizer ever… Baked Brie.


Five Minute Fudge Wreath Recipe

As for the easiest dessert, I’m making Tidy Mom’s fudge wreath. I used gummy fruit as garnish. I’ve used M&M’s in the past as well.


M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last night I added some Christmas colored M & M’s to my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe for a festive and easy treat that everyone will enjoy.


Pecan Chocolate Bars

Pecan Chocolate Bars are another all time favorite sweet treat that I can’t stop eating!


Beer Cheese Dip Recipe

Tidy Mom’s Beer Cheese Dip recipe looks delicious and is on my list to make today as well.


I hope you are able to spend some time with friends and family to enjoy the season!

Have a very Merry Christmas friends!
