Crock Pot Ham And Cheese Sliders

Add a savory sandwich to the snack table that little ones love! Not only are they just the right size for little hands, but even the pickiest eaters like ham and cheese. The best part is that they are made in the slow cooker, so set it and forget it!

This sweet and salty snack is perfect for any guest, but especially if someone has allergies at the party. These homemade pretzels are ready in less than 30 minutes and can easily be doubled for larger crowds.

You can make these in so many different ways, and they are easy enough that kids can help too! Simply dip the pretzel rods into melted chocolate and cover with sprinkles, nuts, cookie crumbles, etc. to make an easy party snack. 

Mac And Cheese Bites In The Air Fryer

What child doesn’t love mac and cheese? You can even use leftovers from last night’s dinner! They take about an hour to make, but if you need to make a bigger batch you can use the oven. Serve with marinara, ranch, or their favorite dipping sauce!

New Years Chocolate Bark Recipe

Chocolate bark is one of the easiest dessert recipes on the planet to make! This recipe has been jazzed up for the party and looks super cute on your snack table. 

Easy Pepperoni Pizza Waffle Fries

Combine a kid’s two favorite snacks into one by making pizza waffle fries! They are ready in less than one hour and taste exactly like pepperoni pizza, except you don’t have to make the crust!

These gooey cereal bars are a chocolate lover’s dream and are super simple to make! They do take a little while to set up, so technically you could make them a day in advance. 

How To Make Marshmallow Pops

Marshmallow pops are a simple party treat that kids can make! All you do is dip the marshmallow in melted chocolate then roll it in your favorite toppings and add a stick! Simple and great if you need a NYE snack on the fly. 

Fruit Kabobs

If you don’t feel like making a full on fruit tray, go with fruit skewers instead! To make these kid snacks more fun and attractive, use small shaped cookie cutters. 

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

These PB pretzel bites are simple to make and you only need a few ingredients. One batch makes 100 bites, so this is perfect for a New Year’s Eve party.

Combine Chex Mix, chocolate chips, powdered sugar, and peanut butter to make these sweet treats that are also gluten and dairy free! This is a great make ahead party recipe to reduce the stress of prepping the day of. 

Pudding Dirt Cups

Smaller kids love dirt cups! If you’ve never made them before they are very simple and they love to help make them. My favorite part is the gummy worms coming out of the top! 

New Year’s Eve Countdown Cupcakes 

What a perfect treat to enjoy before the ball drops! These cupcakes do require some decorating, but they are still simple, so you don’t need to be a pro to make these look presentable.
