It’s Sunday afternoon and your gals have just decided to come to your place to watch the Oscars, but you’re completely unprepared and have nothing to serve except half a loaf of bread from the freezer. Have no fear! A quick trip to the grocery store for a few ingredients to make these simple snacks will make it seem like you planned this last minute Oscars party to begin with. All that’s left to do is throw on an old evening gown and your sparkliest earrings.
Greek food can take hours to marinade and prepare, but tzatziki is quick and only takes a few ingredients. This recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod is best served with whole-grain pita bread, pita chips, or veggies for a healthy table dip packed with protein.
A bowl full of tortilla chips is classic, but tortilla bowls full of dip are just as easy and twice as cute. The Gunny Sack whips up cowboy caviar with a few canned ingredients and fresh avocado for a light and simple vegan-friendly snack.
Traditional potato skins take a fair amount of prep work, but these round slices from I Heart Nap Time deliver just as much flavor with half the work. You can even make these while the show is airing by popping into the kitchen during commercials.
Blueberry Cheesecake Bites
Not only do these look to die for, but they only have four health-conscious ingredients, so you can eat them as appetizers or desserts guilt-free. Gimme Some Oven has the details for these gorgeous two-bite snacks.
Brownie Batter Dip
If your girlfriends are coming over post-dinner, whip up some brownie batter dip from Like Mother Like Daughter and serve with a variety of crackers, fruits, cookies, marshmallows, and well, anything that goes well with chocolate. This dip is extremely versatile and is egg-free.
The 87th Oscars air live February 22nd at 7pm ET/4pm PT on ABC.
