Holiday-themed snacks may be adorable to look at, but aren’t always as delicious as they appear. No matter their cuteness level, foods like Halloween crescent roll mummies are really just plain hot dogs wrapped in crescent roll dough and lack much flavor. Other holiday treats like Christmas Santa Claus cookies and Easter birds’ nest cupcakes suffer from too many mismatched ingredients for the sake of sticking to a theme, which make them more like decorations than tasty treats.
Luckily, these reader-tested recipes are great for any occasion and will be a guaranteed hit at virtually every gathering, from wild house parties to tame nights in with friends. Try these at your next party for happy guests who remember the night not just for the company, but for the food as well.
