Birthday parties involve a lot of preparation and organization.

Mini Meatballs

Meatballs are an easy recipe to make, and you can choose any type of meat you desire, including ground beef, pork, or turkey. By mixing the meat with egg, bread crumbs, and any other seasoning you would like, you can quickly bring them to perfecting in a large skillet with some olive oil. From there, you can dress up the meat with extra seasoning such as onions, garlic, marinara sauce, and cheese. This provides a simple, rich food that is very easy to make.

Pretzel Wands

A fun and delicious dessert can be had with some pretzels, a bit of chocolate or honey, and whatever toppings your guests might like. Take a straight pretzel or a pretzel rod and dip the top third of it in either melted chocolate (a fondue pot is excellent for this) or honey. Then dip the coated end into a bowl of sugar, nuts, ice cream sprinkles, or any other topping you can come up with. Turn the pretzel until it is evenly coated and set aside for a minute or two to dry.

Thumbprint Cookies

These tasty cookies are simply small peanut butter cookies with a dollop of chocolate included. To make the batter, mix ½ cup of creamed butter with ½ cup of brown sugar, one teaspoon of vanilla a cup and a half of flour, two tablespoons of milk, and ½ cup of creamy peanut butter. Mix into a batter, then place on small balls on a cookie sheet. Push your thumb into each ball to create an indentation. Cook at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. You can then add Hershey’s kisses or other candies on top, placing them right into the thumbprint area. Let the cookies cool and then serve.
