If you’re like me, then you put even more stress on yourself at holiday time. Trying to make sure everything is just perfect. All the food is extra-special, and everybody you care about feels like you made a little bit of thoughtful, additional effort, just for them.

But you don’t have to make your own holidays more stressful just to create joy for everyone else. And, truly, when you’re relaxed and able to revel in each festive moment, everybody around you will feel all the more relaxed and happy, too.

So make things EASY this year!

Starting with deliciously simple recipe ideas!

These Easy Christmas Appetizers all take just a few minutes to make.

  • Most are 5-, 10-, or 15-minute recipes.
  • Only a few of these require any cooking or baking at all.
  • And most of them can also be made entirely ahead of time, or at least partially prepped ahead.

I scoured my own recipe archives and asked hundreds of other bloggers to share their favorites. These Christmas party appetizers are all deliciously special, but easy for the chef, too.

So, relax … take things a little easier … and rest assured knowing that you can still create scrumptious holiday magic, without all the effort and stress!

    1. You’re so welcome, Sheila! I’ve got two Christmas parties coming up this weekend (and of course, more to come after that), so you can bet I’m needing cute appetizer ideas, once again this year, too! Glad this collection gave you some inspiration for new recipes to try! Happy holidays! 😀 ~Shelley

    1. Thanks, Carolyne! I had fun putting this list together – so many yummy but still EASY appetizer ideas. It’s just what I need, since our extended family has quite a few different Christmas parties, all within a week or so – I’m always on the lookout for ways to make foods special but still EASY (so I don’t spend the entire week in the kitchen between parties lol). I thought these ideas might help other people out, too! Thanks again, and Merry Christmas! ~Shelley
