With New Year’s around the corner I can’t think of a better way to begin the year than to jazz up a New Year’s party. I found plenty of savory and sweet recipes that will spice up your usual routine and leave people begging for more. As one enjoys these delicious treats, the last thing anyone should worry about is what to do with their beverage of choice in order to eat. While some of the recipes I found are old favorites made with a twist and others are more unconventional party foods, they all have one thing in common, they can be enjoyed with only using your fingers, a toothpick or a fork. It’s as simple as that! Now let’s get to the food and have some fun.
