I would like to win my office's holiday finger food competition. What sweet or savory seasonal item should I make? Thanks!

There will be prizes in these categories: best seasonal, best alternative (vegan, gluten free, etc.), best holiday theme, and overall favorite. The items should be good cold as they will be served in the middle of the workday. Thank you for your advice!

Your question seems to be inviting all of us to do your homework. If you want to win the competition, my recommendation is to interview your colleagues about what they like and find recipes based on that.

Pumpkin, sage and walnut Rugelach are an awesome addition to any party. The reipe is on Food52 but I have no idea how to add it here.

I once made samosas which were a little time consuming but were really good and all my colleagues said they were the hit at the party as they were so different. In my experience anything that is a savory little package is devoured quickly. I would suggest wontons, samosas or spring rolls.

Echo the suggestions below. Would also add the bacon wrapped apricots on this site. You can also make a stuffed date. It's simple, but always delicious.
