Check out all these Fall Appetizers! The BEST PARTY FOODS you will need to throw an amazing AUTUMN party and get everyone else in the HOLIDAY SPIRIT!
Fall is in the air I can just feel it!
The temperatures have started to dip below 100 degrees here in Arizona and I am already looking forward to cooler weather months, finally getting to wear warm sweaters, and all the pumpkin treats you can imagine.
If you are as excited about Fall as I am, and you are wanting to throw a “Welcome to Fall” party, this is the post has all the fall foods you need.
People that come to parties always look forward to the food too so make sure you have a little bit of everything.
You can’t go wrong with a combination of light snacks, hearty appetizers, dips, and small sweets to choose from.
Fall Inspired Nuts
As your guests arrive at the party, you need to have something to keep their hands busy.
A cocktail in one hand allows them to pick up light finger foods and snacks with the other.
Mixed nuts are a great thing to have on hand, as well as a snack mix like Chex, and a Meat and Cheese Platter (Charcuterie Board).
Everyone loves a snack of healthy nuts and my Everything Bagel Almonds are just that! Savory, garlicky, oniony, a little salty, and studded with sesame seeds for even more texture. Be warned, they are addicting!
These toasted gingersnap pecans are covered with a sweet and crispy coating that is bursting with the flavors of gingerbread. Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and a hint of molasses! Perfect for your next holiday party!
Looking for an easy savory snack to make for a party or a lazy weekend afternoon? These buttery and flaky pie crust crackers are studded with earthy mushrooms, fragrant rosemary, and nutty parmesan cheese! Great for eating with cheese and olives or all by themselves!
With all the pumpkin spice floating around why not put some everyone’s favorite snack and add a little kick to keep you awake through that afternoon slump. My Pumpkin Spice Espresso Pretzels will be your new favorite after lunch pick-me-up!
Pimento cheese is a staple in Waycross, Georgia and cheese straws are ever-present at any gathering of note. These pimento cheese straws combine the best of both worlds. Crispy, spicy, flaky, and cheesy is the perfect combination of these addicting bites!
Baked Apple Chips make the perfect Fall snack and the best part is that they are healthy and super delicious, which is a win-win in my book. All you do is slice each apple SUPER thin, sprinkle them with cinnamon-sugar and let the oven do the rest. Easy peasy!
There’s a cheese board… and then… then there is this hummus board.
Next let’s get to the heartier, more filling, appetizers. These may still be finger foods but they are perfect for an evening Fall party where you want to serve food but not necessarily full entrees and meals. These lists also include Fall appetizers for a crowd!
