As my birthday is just around the corner - 2 more days! - I thought I would try some new quick and easy snack recipes to share with you! These three recipes are great for a birthday party and basically every other party occasion!

Veggie Crescent Bites (original)

  • 2 cups chopped veggies (bell peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, arugula)
You will have to...
  • Preheat oven to 220°C
  • Combine cream cheese, sour cream and chives 
  • Roll out the crescent rolls dough and make sure all the single bits are sticking together to form one large sheet of dough
  • Bake the sheet of dough on a baking paper-lined baking sheet for about 10 - 12 minutes and let it cool afterwards
  • Spread the cream cheese-sour cream-chives-dill mixture onto the cooled sheet

Caprese Salad Skewers (original)
You will need...
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Mozzarella balls
  • Arugula
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
You will have to...
  • Put tomatoes, mozzarella and arugula on medium-sized toothpicks, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and peper
  • Optional: Heat up balsamic vinegar until it begins boiling, then let simmering for about 10 - 15 minutes until it reduces to a syrup consistency, let it cool and then drizzle it onto the salad skewers

Salami Pizza Twists (original)
You will need...
  • 500 g pizza dough
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 6 tablespoons of pizza cheese
