Healthy New Year's Eve Ideas

Every year on New Year's Eve, we go to a party at someone else's house. Sometimes, we may be at my parent's house, some times we may be with our neighbors, but we are always somewhere else for the late afternoon/evening. And I always take a couple of different dishes to share. I'm one of those people that doesn't like to show up at a party without some kind of food to share. We are also some of those super cool people that rarely make it to midnight and are passed out an hour or two before that. But that's a something that I'm sure many other parents out there can understand.

I thought it would be fun to go back through some of my past recipes and give some ideas for dishes to bring to a New Year's Eve celebration. Here's what I came up with:

Something Savory: 

Alabama Firecrackers -
Some good to munch on througout the evening.

Baked Buffalo Wings -
Buffalo wings are always a winner. Lighten them up by baking istead of frying!

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip -
Crack dip!! 'Nuff said!

Jalapeno Popper Dip -
We love jalapeno poppers in our house, but the're not very easy to take to a party. This would be a perfect solution!

Simple Guacamole -
So easy to make and delicious, too!

Turkey Egg Rolls -
These are on my menu for this year.

Something Sweet:
If you're in charge of bringing something sweet or a dessert, these might work for you...

Cake Mix Snickerdoodles -
Cookies are always a good idea. You can snack on them throughout the night.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries -
These are really easy, but look pretty fancy and are sure to WOW everyone!

Funfetti Cake Batter Dip -
This is really good and you can change it up with different flavors of cake mix.

Lemon Cream Cupcakes - 
These are absolutely delicious! And they're so pretty!! Perfect for NYE!

Nutella Brownies -
Who doesn't like brownies? 
 
Pretzel Hugs -
These are so addicting, so make sure you have lots of people to share them with!

Toffee Apple Dip -
The dip may not be the healthiest, but at least the apples are!

Mini "Cupcakes"
You can make a mini version of any of the savory "cupcakes" that I've posted by using a mini muffin pan and wonton wrappers instead of the egg roll wrappers.

 
Taco Cupcakes - 



So there you have it. The only problem now, is trying to narrow it down! Good luck with that! I hope you all have a great New Year's Eve and wish you all the very best for 2015.

So long for today...
