As TobiT mentions, fried chickpeas are delicious.
Smoky Fried Chickpeas from this site:

Roasted almonds are so delicious.

This is more finger food than full-on app, but fried chickpeas dusted with cumin are delicious. I think the NYTimes ran a recipe not too long ago (or maybe it was Food52?). If you google it I'm sure lots of versions will pop up.

Above ideas are all great. You might want to scroll up to the magnifying glass in the top right corner, click it, click 'recipes' and fill in the search term 'moroccan' and scroll through the many great 52 recipes to find something appealing!

You could do a variety of cooked salads: Moroccan carrots (simmer whole carrots with a clove of garlic until tender, slice on the diagonal and dress with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, nutmeg, the cooked garlic clove, mashed, and a dusting of minced parsley); roasted red peppers with fried garlic; fried or roasted eggplant salad with garlic, preserved lemon and a sprinkle of wine vinegar; all served at cool room temp.

Not a Moroccan expert, but I always love a mix of olives as an easy app. There's also a recipe for carrot crostini. You could jazz up the carrots with Moroccan spices. I also believe you could wrap something in phyllo and bake or fry t off.
