10 New Year's Eve Snacks to Make at Home

December 30, 2014

It's always more fun to DIY. Every week, we'll spare you a trip to the grocery store and show you how to make small batches of great foods at home.

Today: New Year's Eve isn’t associated with food as much as it is with Champagne, but these nine easy DIY snack recipes may convince you otherwise.

With 2015 on the horizon, it’s time to pop Champagne, invite friends over, and bust out some finger food. Since New Year's Eve is the one time of the year you’re actually encouraged to join your friends in late-night debauchery, why not rebel with a collective midnight snack? Lucky for you, everything pairs with Champagne, so grab a glass and a plate of salty or sweet food before those pesky resolutions set in.

Word to the wise: Consider saving the homemade French Onion Dip for 12:01 if you’re counting on a midnight kiss.
