The holiday season is in full swing, which means all month-long we’ll be toasting and hosting–a–plenty as we walk out of the room to adjust our waistbands to make more room for more. More. MORE!
In between decorating and shopping, we’ll be scurrying off to holiday dinners and parties of all sorts, as well as throwing our own. Since December brings such a flurry of activity, and our time is limited and precious, we’ve gathered up 15 simple but amazing holiday appetizer recipes using five ingredients or less.
Simple to make? Yes! Short on flavor? NO WAY!
From the usual suspects, like baked brie and crostini, to a made-over version of the nostalgic party fave—the cheeseball—these festive 5-ingredient appetizers are the perfect way to spread the cheer with the ones you love, and give you more time to mingle!
Appetizers That’ll Make You Jingle
Everyone is ready to dig into the nibbles and nosh, but first things first with a few fun products to get the appys safely to their destination and then serve them up in style.
App It Easy With 5 Ingredients or Less
Isn’t it great to know there are plenty of time and ingredient-saving recipes out there amid the wonderful chaos of the season, especially if you’re the one who’s doing the hosting. Party on Rudolph!
