Appetizer Ideas for Holiday Parties

Struggling with what to bring to your holiday parties? Here are two very easy appetizers that you might want to consider. If you are really short on time and energy, what always seems to be a hit, is a pretty platter of store-bought chocolate-covered pretzels (Trader Jo's is great!). Do you have any ideas for easy appetizers? Comment here.

Hot Buffalo Chicken Dip

Cook and cool 2 chicken breasts (or more). Shred the chicken into pieces.

Mix 1 cup of Frank's hot sauce
1/2 cup of Marie's Blue Cheese dressing (found in the lettuce section)
1 brick of cream cheese
Mix 2 cups of cheddar jack cheese (shredded) and shredded chicken together

Put in an oven-safe dish for 20 minutes at 250
Serve with tortilla chips

Granny Smith Apple Dip

Spread a block of cream cheese onto a serving platter.
Warm a tub of T. Marzetti carmel apple dip (found in produce section) until warm.
Drizzle and spread on the cream cheese.
Sprinkle granola on top.
Cut up granny smith apples and place around the edges for dipping!
