We'll all soon be ringing in 2019 and if you're hosting a party and looking for some last minute appetizer ideas, you should check these out!

When my wife and I entertain a group of friends at our house we're always looking beyond the basics of cheese and crackers or bbq lil' smokies to serve at the party. Great appetizers make the party along with some kind of specialty drink, but you've got to make sure you have enough on hand! We'll always have a variety for everyone to choose from, but it is hard to predict which appetizer will be the hit!

If you've got a party planned for tonight and need some last minute inspiration to help make your party a hit, check out these ideas from Delish. Many of these include my favorite ingredients: bacon, cheese, meatballs and chocolate and some of them can be ready in just 30 minutes (if you have everything on hand already!)

Here's to hoping you have a successful New Year's Eve party!

And just because they're just so damn good, tempting and satisfying - here's a recipe for Slow Cooker Bourbon Smokies - ENJOY!!
