Finger Food Recipes

Guest Author - Brandii Lacey

New Year’s Eve is an exciting time for young and old alike. Some look forward to the parties, and some look forward to trying to stay up until midnight.

No matter if your whole family will be up at midnight or if you do a “pre” new year’s eve, here are some fun recipes to make with your kids for a festive celebration.

Pigs in a Blanket Recipe

• Hot dogs (or, turkey dogs---much less fat and calories, see chart below)

• Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls

• American, cheddar, or swiss cheese slices (regular or reduced fat)

Steps:

1. Cut hot dogs in fourths.

2. Cut cheese slices in half.

3. Place one hot dog inside each triangle of the crescent roll.

4. Place cheese slice over dog.

5. Wrap crescent roll over hot dog—the ends should stick out a little.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until cooked through.

A note about the turkey dogs: My teenage nephew was over at our house recently. I offered him a turkey hot dog, and he liked the flavor much better than the regular hot dogs. Of course, I didn’t TELL him how much healthier it was until AFTER he tried it.

Peppermint Brownie Cupcakes Recipe

Ingredients

2. Pour into cup cake pan lined with sliver foil liners

3. Pour batter halfway into each cupcake liner.
