10 Quick and Easy New Year's Eve Appetizers

Every time New Year’s Eve comes around, and I fill our kitchen with tons of delicious appetizers, I wonder, “Why don’t I do this like, every weekend!?” I love to graze. I always (always always), take a box for my food at a restaurant. I’d rather snack on it for an unreasonable amount of time than eat it all at once. I’m also a weirdo and have a lot of habits that are similar to that of a five year old. But anyway.

This list should definitely give you some New Year’s Eve appetizer inspiration, there’s something for everyone here. (Not to mention four, count ’em four, types of wonton recipes. But there’s also lots of finger food and tasty dip that’s to die for.

I hope that you and your family and friends have a very happy, fun, and safe New Year.
