We're having a party this Sunday and I'm tired of all the same old snacks!
We're "Nintendo Brand Enthusiasts" so the party is to showcase one of Nintendo's new Wii products. One of the games is an ice cream scooping contest, so they asked us to have an ice cream sundae bar as part of the party. (Twist my arm!) :smileywink: I got some great ideas for that part from How to Plan the Perfect Ice Cream Social, but I could really use some snack ideas.
I scheduled the party at 2pm and mentioned the ice cream sundae bar. I think that makes it clear that there won't be a meal served. Regardless, I'd like to provide guests with something else to snack on besides just ice cream and sweets.
I'm going to do something like this with veggies in a cup with ranch dip. I think it's good for the parents and makes veggies look a little more fun for kids.
I'll also put out some bowls of goldfish crackers in various spots for the kids.
Other than that all I can think of is cheese & crackers, summer sausage, and other boring things. I need something quick and easy - preferably no cooking - since I'll be pretty busy with everything else happening during the party. Should I just go with easy out-of-the-bag munchies?
