21 Holiday Appetizer Recipes perfect for all Your Parties! Everything from Cheese Balls, Pizza and Wontons!

When you think of holiday parties and gatherings for Christmas you usually think of all the cookies and sweets don’t you? The cute cut out sugar cookies that have been painstakingly decorated or the delicious thumbprint cookies or maybe my favorite Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies! It’s really a time of the year to indulge in everything sweet and tasty and feel a little less guilty about it!

You know what? It’s also the perfect time of the year to break out all your fabulous appetizer recipes! You find this surprising but I would rather head to the appetizer table over the cookie and sweets table and day of the week! I hardly ever get to sample all those delicious appetizers either so I’m all about having an appetizer party for the holidays. We did just that for one of our Christmases a few years back and it was delicious! Everyone brought an appetizer or two to pass and it was so much fun! I highly recommend it. Don’t worry we snuck in a few Christmas cookies too. We can’t leave those out!

Today I’m saying thank you to my fabulous contributors to Julie’s Eats & Treats in 2015 by hosting a giveaway for a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer.

See you in in this too! We’ve also rounded up our favorite holiday appetizers so make sure to check them out then head to the bottom of the post to enter to win the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer!
