Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year’s, oh my! The holidays are quickly approaching, which means it’s time for the corporate world’s most anticipated event of the year: the office holiday party.
If you’ve found yourself in charge of the festivities, it can be a bit overwhelming to start. Deciding about decorations, music, and activities is hard enough, but constructing the menu is particularly nerve-wracking. Food is, arguably, the most important part of any party, so you want to make sure you do it right. Whether you’ve got your menu downpat or have no idea where to start, take a look below at some of our suggestions for the best snack options for your holiday corporate event:
Guacamole & Chips
Guacamole is a fan-favorite at most gatherings, and for good reason. Not only is the green superfood absolutely delicious, but it’s also a healthy source of fat and protein. You can go the traditional route of a bowl of guac and store-bought chips, or you can get creative with the holiday theme and make these festive Christmas tree guacamole chips.
Everyone loves food on a stick! Skewers, or shish kabobs, are a great way to portion and present your office holiday snacks. You can get creative and swap different meats, veggies, and cheeses to maximize the array of options offered. Try out this recipe for Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs, and maybe even add a dipping sauce of your own!
Deviled eggs are a great finger food for get-togethers, and when presented well, they can easily steal the show. Take a look at these Grinch-ified deviled eggs and give them a try at your next holiday party. Just make sure you serve them soon after making, because this dish can go bad pretty quickly.
What would the holidays be without fudge? Serve up some homemade chocolate goodness to your coworkers with a batch of classic holiday fudge. If you’re more of an experimentalist, it’s true that nuts, caramel, or peppermint make great additions to chocolate desserts, and you’ll be the talk of the office for spicing—or sweetening—up the party!
You can’t forget the beverages, of course. No Christmas party would be complete without eggnog, and while you could buy a couple quarts from the supermarket, there’s something especially festive about making your own. Spices like nutmeg and vanilla can increase the flavor, and if you’re feeling cheeky, you can add a spot of rum to liven up the party.
