Simple Sweet and Savory Holiday Snacks

This post is sponsored by NABISCO®​. All opinions are my own.

After such a long and crazy year for everyone, the holidays are finally near. We really have so much to celebrate. I'm looking forward to hosting a smaller version of our annual Christmas party again this year. These two simple and festive recipes will definitely be part of the gathering. I created a savory cheese spread and a sweet, festive snack for dessert. Having foods that coordinate with the theme and decor is one of my favorite things. It makes for great photos and guests enjoy it too. Both recipes are below. I was able to find all of the ingredients at Target. Make sure to check the Target app weekly for new Circle offers.

WHEAT THINS®​ ​Gruyere Pinecone Spread

2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Neufchatel cheese, softened
1 env. (1 oz.) dry onion soup mix
4 oz. Gruyere cheese, shredded
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup sliced almonds
6 sprigs fresh rosemary
WHEAT THINS® Original Snacks

Beat Neufchatel cheese and dry soup mix in medium bowl until blended. Add shredded cheese; mix well.

Divide cheese mixture in half. Shape each half into an oval that is slightly pointed at one end to resemble a pinecone on serving plate.

Insert nuts, at a slight angle into cheese mixture. Tuck rosemary sprigs around pinecones.

Refrigerate 2 hours. Let pinecones stand at room temperature 15 min. before serving to soften slightly.

Serve with WHEAT THINS® .

HONEY MAID® Peppermint Crunch Grahams

8 HONEY MAID® Honey Grahams, broken in to 16 squares
1 pkg. (4 oz.) white baking chocolate, melted
8 crushed green and/or red round peppermint candies or candy canes

Spread graham squares with chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed candy.
Let stand 20 min. or until chocolate is firm.

I'm really craving simpler times these days and I know I'm not alone in that. Evite always makes party planning so much easier. There's no ordering, printing, stuffing, addressing, and stamping. Just make a few clicks and your invitations are sent. I use Evite for almost all of my parties and I don't think I'll ever turn back. This is the one I'm eyeing for this year's smaller gathering. No matter the size of the party, a cute invitation really sets the tone for an event, even if it’s just something as simple as a family gathering at someone’s house. Make sure to look at all the other ideas on Evite for holiday entertaining as well!

One more simple tip is to style your festive foods on a small table in front of your Christmas tree for great photos. With such a gorgeous backdrop you will only need a few small decorations on the table making this a great hack for simplicity and a wow factor your guests will appreciate.
