This might have been one of the longest weeks, ever. Lowlights include trying to hang a ceiling light fan for four hours, getting 4 hours of sleep each night, and screaming at the Home Depot store manager over why I should get my countertops for free because it’s not my fault that they don’t have clear procedures in place for who should have alerted us that the style we picked out is no longer made. 4 weeks later. After, I called them for a status update. (It might just be my new mission in life to defame Home Depot and their less than quality customer service.) I’m over it, can’t you tell?
The highlight of the week was finally getting to host my first party in our newly renovated space! It was great to have friends and family over to check out how far we’ve come with the house, eat some snacks, drink some wine, and shop for some jewelry! Thank you, ladies, for coming! One of my favorite parts about having a party is deciding what kind of snacks to make. I knew I wanted to feature some LKBF recipes and also make items that were easy to carry in one hand (so the ladies could shop with their free hand, of course). Since my chicken wing dip always seems to be a crowd pleaser, I decided to transform it into a easy, bite-size snack.
I simply shaped a small wonton wrapper into mini muffin tin cups, and baked them in the oven for a couple of minutes. Then, I filled the wrappers with the chicken wing dip mixture, topped that with some extra blue cheese crumbles (you know I just can’t get enough blue cheese), and baked them again until the wontons were golden brown and crispy. Garnish with a little scallion and serve them up.
These little appetizers are addicting. The chicken mixture has a creamy texture from the cream cheese, and is pretty spicy from all of that hot sauce! The blue cheese crumbles, melted on top, perfectly cut the spiciness of the chicken. And, I love that you don’t need a cracker for dipping. Just pop these wonton bites right in your mouth! They’re perfect for a party (or game day!) because they take almost no time to whip up. You can even make the dip the day before you serve. Then, right before your guests arrive, make, fill, and bake the wonton cups. These snacks are ready to go in just 10 minutes!
In case you’re wondering, I also made a meat & cheese platter for easy snacking and some fudgy chocolate br-ookies for dessert. Simple and easy! I can’t wait to host another party!
