As we enter the final stretch of the year, and quite frankly the final stretch of these jeans I’m wearing, it’s time to eat like nobody’s watching for one final time. Because January marks the start of your new… Diet? Lol sorry, I can’t even pretend that that’s going to happen on this blog. We always eat like nobody’s watching!

Anywho, if you’re celebrating New Years this year I’ve got you covered. Because whether you’re alone or working with a bigger crowd, everybody needs nibbles heading into the New Year. All of the recipes below are easy to make, perfect finger food and outrageously delicious.

To keep things organised, I’ve split the nibbles into sections and have chosen this year’s top recommendation in each:

  1. Potato Nibbles
  2. Dips
  3. Bread
  4. Puff Pastry
  5. Baked Nibbles
  6. No-bake Nibbles
  7. Fried Chicken
  8. Fried Veggie Nibbles
  9. Nachos

If you don’t find something on this list that tickles your pickle, I’ve officially failed as a food blogger 😂. So let’s tuck in!
