New Years Eve Party Recipe/Menu Plan

new years party recipe ideas

We are having a crowd of teenagers over for a New Years party. I am still trying to get used to this teen thing, they are a lot of fun, but weird at the same time :)

I am making a little bit of everything and the girls coming over actually requested that we make cookies so I think I am going make a few batches ahead of time and have the dough in the fridge.

Each of the kids got to pick what they wanted, hence the hodge podge of food. It isn’t what I would have picked, but that makes it more fun for them!

If you want to try just one recipe, try the Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings, you won’t be sorry!

    Thanks for the ideas and the recipes, was trying to decide what to make for our “little” celebration, granted the oldest is 8 and they’ll all be konked out before the ball drop. But they are still excited and wanted to make “party” food. Have a Great 2013 and thanks for all you do!!!

      Nicole, A little secret… We actually set the clocks 2 hours forward. At 10pm they say 12:00. We have a BIG celebration and then out the little kids to bed. We move the clocks ahead and then we all celebrate at midnight!

    I’ve made the mountain dew apple dumplings before for a boy scout award ceremony and they were a big hit. I will be serving Sticky Balls (a fantastic meatball recipe but as the sauce thickens it gets sticky, hence the name), Dogs ‘n Hogs (Lil Smokies wrapped in bacon), Hot Crab Dip, Queso with Tostitos, hot hamburger spread on french bread, buffalo chicken quesadillas with blue cheese and celery, mini spinach dip bread bowls, mini chimis with sour cream and salsa, shrimp ring with cocktail sauce, bean dip with Doritos, potato chips & dip, cheese & cracker and meat platter, veggie tray, cookie and candy tray, punch and a few alcoholic beverages. I better get to bed it looks like I’ll be cooking all day in preparation for the party! Have a safe and Happy New Year!

      Oh I am so sorry I have not put 2 recipes in a post before. I didn’t think about how it would print. You might have ot just copy and paste it into a word doc and print that.
