Dried Apricot Blue Cheese Canapes For a Holiday Happy Hour
It’s Friday and the Holidays are upon us. So, a few of my friends and I decided to host a Holiday Happy Hour–blog style! You’ll be able to hop around to all 10 fabulous blogs to get the appetizer and cocktail recipes each of us brought to the “party”. Fun right?
If you are visiting from Celebrations at Home, welcome!! Now let’s grab a napkin and glass and get this party started!
I don’t know about you, but holiday parties present a few challenges for me……… such as making yoga pants look classy enough to wear to a holiday dinner, volunteering for dish duty to avoid conversations with crazy Uncle Mike, and restraining myself from eating all of the Dried Apricot and Blue Cheese Canapes with Walnuts before the guests arrive.
The struggles are real, people!
Dried Apricot Blue Cheese Canapes with Walnuts
Making a delicious appetizer for a party doesn’t have to be a struggle though! These Dried apricots and Blue Cheese Canapes with Walnuts come together in no time.
They are simple, yet elegant enough for any kind of party. Don’t let their small size fool you, the little bites are packed with flavor, sweet, tangy, salty all in one punch.
Not to heavy and perfect to nosh on before or after a meal.
When I got home, I decided to make them with walnuts and blue cheese. I love that this is an appetizer recipe that you can make a few hours early (or the day before) in just a few quick minutes.
Then set out the Dried Apricot and Blue Cheese Canapes with Walnuts before the guests arrive to get to room temperature and drizzle with the honey.
They look so pretty on a plate or platter…..garnish with a sprig of rosemary on the serving dish for a simple presentation.
These little morsels are the perfect easy appetizers.
as for my other struggles……..skinny yoga pants with boots and a big comfy sweater and no one will be the wiser 😉 BAM!
