Easy birthday party snacks are the order of the day! These tasty treats are the perfect way to bring everyone together for a fun-filled, low stress, candle light dinner. There is something about a group of friends that sharing a delicious, homemade meal or snack makes life a little easier and we all appreciate a helping hand when it comes to entertaining guests. Whether you prepare a traditional or gourmet based dish, the inclusion of an easy birthday party snack will be sure to delight everyone and give them the opportunity to experience a taste of the holiday with friends and family.

Hummus is one of the most popular easy birthday party snacks. The creamy, tangy dip can be spread onto plain or deli bread or purchased in a can. Popular brands include: Paskes, Enjoy Life, Hostess, and Yoplait. While almost any type of dip can be enjoyed with these foods, it is important to choose one that suits the theme of your party, whether it’s holiday, birthday, or themed pre-wedding parties. If you have guests who do not eat dairy, consider other dairy-based foods, such as hot dogs, puddings, or ice cream.

Cookies are another easy birthday party finger foods. These sweet treats can be made from traditional ingredients, such as white chocolate, peanut butter, or sugar cookies, or you can get creative and use your imagination when it comes to mixing and matching flavors. Consider using either vanilla or chocolate chips, or experiment with new flavors by mixing in fruits, nuts, cinnamon, or pretzels. You can also make mini cheesecakes that are just as tasty as their larger counterparts.

Sandwiches are an easy choice for snacks. They can be made with deli meat sandwiches, chicken cutlets, pork chops, or even spare ribs. For sandwiches, consider using tomato paste, salad dressing, and cheese to dress them up, and make sure to add fresh greens and tortilla chips on the sandwich. Finger foods for sandwiches such as these are a good option if you do not want to eat a full meal, and they are easy to carry off of your picnic table or counter.

A good snack idea for an afternoon tea party is to serve tea sandwiches. This is a great option for children’s birthday parties because it is both delicious and relatively cheap. All you need to create your sandwiches are some bread or crackers, some cheese, fresh veggies, and maybe a sprinkling of some honey or lemon juice.

To serve, all you need to do is cut up the sandwiches and put them on the plate. Then, provide the guests with a small cup of tea. You can easily make this a fun activity by ensuring that each guest chooses a sandwich from the list you have provided.

Prepare Fruit And Nut Bars

Another easy idea for a birthday party snack table would be to prepare fruit and nut bars. These are also great for kid’s birthday parties because they are relatively inexpensive and taste great. Some great options for nuts include salted, unsalted, or flavored Almonds, Cashews, and Pecans. For a nice change of pace, you can make your own nut mixture by using dried fruit, ground nuts, and raisins to top your homemade nut bars with. Caramel popcorn, which is made from popcorn kernels, is another great alternative for a snack table that is easy to make and easy to serve.

Easy birthday party ideas for finger foods include ranch dressings. For example, you can make a ranch salad dressing by using sour cream, yogurt, chopped romaine lettuce leaves, croutons, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, and flaxseed oil. You can dress it up with a few varieties of fresh vegetables such as romaine, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and spinach. Pairing well with any of these finger foods are tuna salad sandwiches, zesty tortellini mushrooms, or creamy potato chips.
