I don’t generally go to New Year’s Eve parties. I like to be cozy at home and these days, I can’t stay up that late! I really do enjoy some good party food though. Whether you plan to stay snuggled up on the couch at home or throw a big bash for all your friends, you’re going to want to check out these party appetizer ideas.

I could make a whole meal of them. If you’re looking for some New Year’s Party Appetizer Ideas, I’ve gathered up some here. These are simple, but delicious.

You know what a crescent roll is, but did you know that you can make all sorts of holiday appetizers and snacks with it? These are definitely a step above the pigs in a blanket I used to have as a kid. Here are some ideas for your party:

These are almost a tradition in some parts of the country. Plus, they’re super-easy to make.. You can use hot sausage to make them spicy or you can use only mild if you prefer. You can also experiment with different types of cheese. (psssst – I have never had these before! I can’t wait to try them).
