First, we had carrot "fingers" -- baby carrots, cut in half, with a touch of cream cheese holding an almond "nail" on the tip. Tasty and creepy! We also had a stack of bowls holding bread, mozzarella slices, and salsa (a standard at almost any party we host).
Naturally, with vegetables taken care of, we needed some kind of fruit dish. Here, we chose to make a pumpkin dip with apple slices. This part of the snack-food feast ended up being one of the biggest -- if not the biggest -- hits at the party. Everyone loved it, and it was super easy to put together.
Naturally, dessert was required as well. I made miniature cupcakes (just from a mix -- nothing special) and put spider webs and spiders on top with icing. Delicious and precious!
Last, as the picture below shows, we made miniature hot-dogs wrapped in dough. Easy, delicious, and practically a tradition at holiday meals in my family.
All said, a delicious time was had by all. Moreover, the food was generally easy to put together, involved few ingredients, and I was able to make much of it earlier in the day or the day before. Success!
