Intimate Party Snack Ideas

Whether you have a small group of people coming over for a dinner party or you’re throwing a casual Sunday night barbecue, your options are always going to be limited. Out of all the party options available, though, a barbecue party happens to be the best pick to appease the guests. This is because it is easy to make, affordable, and can feed a lot of people. With the right ingredients and a few simple steps, you can have a delicious meal for everyone to enjoy.

Fuel is an essential part of any barbecue party, however. Depending on the type of grill you have, you will need to make sure you have enough stock to keep the party going throughout the night. If you see that the stock is limited and it won’t be enough to entertain the number of guests you have invited, it is best to order some fuel from Firewood Farm (or a similar website) right away. The additional benefit of using a wooden grill (if you have one, of course!) is that it will give the food a smoky flavour, which most people tend to like.

Now, it is safe to say that a dinner or barbeque party is incomplete without some refreshing beverages, so you’d want to pair the food with some great choices for everyone to select from. Beer might be a primary choice considering its popularity in get-togethers and parties, but you should extend your options to other spirits like wine, or even cocktails. As for those who enjoy drinking non-alcoholic beverages, you could stock up on some chilled festivo Portofino, squeeze some fruit juices, or keep some sodas at your disposal.

Since the preliminary requirements of hosting a barbecue party are sorted, let’s move on to some of the most sumptuous recipes:

Grilled barbecue Chicken

This dish is perfect for grilling outdoors or in the oven and results in tender, flavorful chicken. The recipe is simple too. It just requires marinating the chicken in a mixture of garlic, herbs, spices, and your favourite sauces, and then slowly cooking it over indirect heat until it is cooked through.

Marinated Tomato with Mozzarella

This dish combines the sweetness of the tomatoes with the creaminess of the mozzarella, making it a delightful combination of flavours. The marinade helps to bring out the flavour of the tomatoes, while the mozzarella adds an extra layer of richness to the dish. It can instantly become anyone’s favourite.

Blue Cheese and Olives

I love blue cheese and olives together, but I also like to mix the flavours to make something even more interesting. Try a tartare of blue cheese mixed with olives in a hot sauce like aioli for a first course, or toss blue cheese with pitted olives and lemon slices for an elegant appetiser.

Beerless batter deep-fried fishes

Beerless batter deep-fried fishes are fantastic party snacks due to their delicious and crispy texture. The absence of beer in the batter makes them suitable for all guests, including those who don’t consume alcohol. The light and airy coating enhances the flavor of the fish, making them a crowd-pleasing option. The easy recipe can be prepared quickly and can be served with various dips or sauces.

Sour Cream and Cheddar

Sour cream and cheddar cheese are both classic, but they taste fantastic together. Serve this cheddar-sour cream spread with corn chips for a snack that will be gone in no time.

Peanut Butter Balls

A sweet nutritious snack and likely to be a surprise for some guests. Just mix a cup of peanut butter with two cups of rolled oats and shape into balls. You can add extra flavours like chocolate chips or shredded coconut but it’s best to keep it simple. It’s easy what you can make with plain old peanut butter, there are some more easy recipes on Chopnotch if you’re interested.

Garlicky Artichoke Hearts

My two favourite things are artichokes and garlic. I love to dip the artichoke hearts in olive oil and use them as a side dish for dips and spreads. They are definitely a must-have at any party.

Cherry Tomatoes and Goat Cheese

Here’s an easy snack that’s sure to impress your guests. This recipe for goat cheese and cherry tomatoes on toast is a great way to finish off an appetiser. Serve it with a creamy, honey-sweetened balsamic. You might even want to serve it with crostini instead of toast because it’s a bit thicker than a normal baguette.

Cake Pops

Satisfy your guest’s sweet tooth with these small cakes on sticks. Bake a cake as normal then grind it to crumbs, mix it with buttercream, and shape it into balls. After chilling them for 4 hours stick them on a skewer and dip in melted chocolate. These are sure to be eaten up in an instant!
