Pass the final hours of the year munching on these lighter, healthier snacks. New Year's parties are a great time to enjoy your favorite holiday finger foods, cocktails, and sweets. Just don't overdo it. Pace yourself both with food and drinks. Our collection of lighter snacks makes it possible to stretch your celebratory well into the evening.

Tricolored Beet Tart

Start your holiday meal with a simple yet gorgeous beet tart, topped off with tangy goat cheese, crunchy hazelnuts, and flaky sea salt. Par-bake the crust to get a lovely raised edge (what forms the shell of your tart) and ensure that the bottom will be cooked through. If you or your guests are not beet fans, substitute sweet potatoes: Wrap 4 (4-ounce) sweet potatoes in parchment paper, and microwave at HIGH 3 minutes. Then cool, peel, and slice. You can also sub feta for goat cheese and pecans or walnuts for hazelnuts.

Smoked Salmon Bites

If you're looking for an appetizer that will delight your guests with its gorgeous presentation and rich, delicious taste, the search stops here. These beautiful canapés start with a base of candy cane (or Chioggia) beet squares, whose alternating ruby and white rings are stunning. (You can add more color to the platter by alternating candy cane beet and golden beet slices.) The beet stays raw, so the slices are crunchy and sweet and hold up nicely. The jewel-like topping of easy-to-find salmon caviar turns what's truly a simple make-ahead nibble into an absolute work of art that'll make you the talk of your social circle.

Glazed Cocktail Meatballs

These mini meatballs are perfect for holiday parties and tailgating. We made them healthier by forgoing sodium-heavy ingredients like the usual ketchup and chili sauce and including whole-grain bulgur in place of breadcrumbs. You can also serve a larger portion of these meatballs for weeknight dinner. To up the kid-friendly factor, omit the ground red pepper in the glaze and serve with mashed potatoes (à la Swedish meatballs). For a tangier glaze, substitute cranberry sauce for the grape jelly.

Dressing-Stuffed Mini Peppers

We love these stuffed peppers as an appetizer, but you can also serve them as a side dish. Be sure to use baby bell peppers and not mini sweet peppers (shaped like jalapeños) so they're big enough to accommodate the filling. As an alternative to broiling, you can char the peppers directly over a gas flame, turning frequently with tongs.

Mini Cheese Balls

Save 108 calories, 7g sat fat, and 69mg sodium per serving over a traditional cheese ball. Almond milk cream cheese is delicately nutty, with a buttery-rich texture and zero grams of sat fat. Find it at Whole Foods stores nationwide. You can substitute 1⁄3-less-fat cream cheese, which adds 1.6g sat fat to each serving.

Golden Beet Nachos

With their awesome crunch and yellow color, thinly sliced golden beets make a great stand-in for tortilla chips. A mandoline works beautifully for slicing; try to cut the beets between 1/8- and 1/16-inch thick. If you use a knife instead, aim to get the thinnest slices possible.

Crispy Parmesan Chickpeas

Dry your chickpeas as thoroughly as possible before cooking to ensure a satisfyingly crisp result. If you're planning to pack these flavor-coated, fiber-filled poppers as a to-go-snack, be sure to allow them to cool completely on a flat surface first.

Gingery Shrimp Salad Bites

Photo: Christopher Testani

Pick up inexpensive Chinese soup spoons at Asian markets, or serve on rice crackers or in hollowed-out pieces of cucumber. The chives, an optional sixth ingredient, perk up the look but aren’t crucial to the flavor.

Mini Crab Cakes With Pickled Celery

Save 104 calories, 12.6g fat, and 156mg sodium over traditional mini crab cakes. You can bake these cakes up to 2 hours ahead of party time and rewarm in a 300° oven for 5 to 6 minutes.

Candied Hazelnuts

The easiest way to candy nuts is to toss them with an egg white-sugar mixture, then gently bake them until the sugar melts and the egg whites dry out, forming a crispy candy shell around each nut. The whites serve as an adhesive so the sugar and any flavorings can cling to the nuts. There are other, trickier methods, but this one gives you sure fire results. You can play with spices and sweeteners; try maple sugar or granulated honey. The choice of nut is up to you. A crunchy sugar coating goes hand in hand with any nut, but pecans and walnuts really rise to the occasion: Their craggy surfaces are perfect for catching the egg mixture. Candied nuts are pretty durable, so make a big batch, and store them in a cool, dry place for up to one week.

Hasseltots with Crème Fraîche and Caviar

This two-bite, no-fork-required appetizer is perfect for parties where guests will be juggling drinks and nibbles. Choose a sustainable, budget-friendly roe. Depending on what kind you choose, it can be affordable or break the bank. Make note of the origin to be sure you aren't buying caviar or roe from endangered fishing areas or species. We suggest Classic American White Sturgeon Caviar ($85/oz.), Paddlefish Caviar ($44/oz.), Salmon Roe ($8/oz.), and Masago ($5/oz.). Store opened caviar on ice, and use within one to two days. In a pinch, sour cream can stand in for the crème fraîche.

Beet Hummus with Blue Cheese and Walnuts

We love creating innovative hummus recipes, and Beet Hummus with Blue Cheese and Walnuts is no exception. This beautiful, crimson-colored dip is made with chickpeas, tahini, beets and garlic.

Pear, Brie, and Balsamic Bruschetta

This bruschetta is both sweet, with pear slices and honey, and savory because of the Brie cheese and balsamic drizzle. Perfect for entertaining, these adorable bruschetta bites are a light way to kick off a dinner, plus they come together quickly and easily.

Goat Cheese Queso Dip with Vegetable Chips

This warm, tangy twist on fundido is perfect with sparkling wine; the bubbles help cut through the richness. We pair with veggie chips, but you can also serve with crudités for a fresher take. The dip is very easy to put together. One note on mixing: Blend the beans until they are completely smooth and puréed for the silkiest, creamiest results. You can’t overblend it, but if you stop too soon, the dip might have a few lumps. The great thing about this dip is that it can be made ahead and rewarmed when you’re ready to serve it. To reheat, stir gently over low heat until hot. For an herby version, add a generous 1⁄4 cup of a mix of chopped herbs, such as parsley, chives, and a little basil.

Spicy Soy Bar Nuts

To achieve maximum nuttiness, you have to toast nuts. This coaxes out flavorful, aromatic oils for a deep, rich taste and pulls out some of the nut's moisture for satisfying crunch with each bite. Our go-to-method for toasting nuts is a slow oven roast at a relatively low temperature (300°F) in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, stirring occasionally until lightly browned and crisp. That allows hot air to circulate around each nut to gently cook it. Don't blast them in a hot 400°F oven for a few minutes until they've darkened—not a good thing for a nut—because that high heat can bring out bitter flavors. Only using a handful? You can also roast nuts in a pan on the stovetop over medium-low heat or on a plate in the microwave for a minute or so at HIGH.

Sesame-Soy Nut and Pretzel Mix

If any one dish is devoured quickly and constantly (usually by the fistful) throughout the holiday, it’s snack mix. Consisting of salty nuts, pretzels, and cereal doused with a Worcestershire and butter, this innocent munchie racks up sodium and calories quickly. Our healthier version gives you all the salt, crunch, and bold spices of the original with the addition of whole-grain popcorn, toasty whole-wheat cereal, and spicy wasabi peas. The peas inspired an Asian track with toasty sesame oil and reduced-sodium soy sauce, cashews, and pungent ground ginger.

Sautéed Mushrooms with Garlic

After just one bite, it's easy to get hooked on this flavorful, 5-ingredient, hummus topper. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with toasty baked pita chips, if desired. Simple, yet impressive, soon you'll be topping mashed potatoes and steaks with this versatile mushroom side too.

Broiled Shrimp with Buttermilk Rémoulade

Quick broiled shrimp paired with spicy remoulade dipping sauce is sure to rally a crowd at the appetizer table. This holiday staple is naturally low in sugar and rich in lean protein.

Lobster and Bacon Stuffed Jalapeño Bites

Put down the wings and elevate your happy hour appetizers with these flavorful bite-sized poppers. The cream cheese balances the spice of the jalapeños with the richness of the lobster and bacon.

Bacon and Ricotta-Stuffed Mushrooms

These crowd-pleasing stuffed ‘shrooms pack two cheeses, crumbled bacon, and fresh thyme. You can fill the mushroom caps in advance, but don’t sprinkle the panko mixture over top until ready to bake.

Chestnut Hummus

This homemade hummus is a great appetizer for holiday parties and casual dinner get-togethers alike. Healthy dippers include baby carrots, bell peppers, pita chips, radishes, jicama, and sugar snap peas.

Pesto Pastries

Unlike classic pesto, there's no oil in this filling. Once everything is minced in the food processor, though, it develops a paste-like consistency. Thaw the pastry in the fridge overnight, or leave out at room temperature for an hour or two.

Spinach-Artichoke Bites

Save 167 calories, 3.6g sat fat, and 393mg sodium per serving over traditional spinach-artichoke dip. Frozen artichoke hearts contain no added salt, unlike the canned variety, which may contain more than 300mg per half cup.

Chicken Phyllo Turnovers

Photo: Christopher Testani

This appetizer is based on bisteeya, a traditional Moroccan pastry that pairs savory, spiced meat and flaky phyllo with a dusting of cinnamon and powdered sugar. Make ahead: Freeze unbaked pastries for up to 1 month; bake frozen, unthawed pastries 5 additional minutes or until browned.

Date, Walnut, and Blue Cheese Ball

This retro-chic snack can be served with raw veggies, crackers, or toasted whole grain bread. Medjool dates add natural sweetness and chewy texture, while blue cheese creates the ideal salty, tangy contrast. Bonus: you can prepare it up to two days in advance.

Mac and Cheese Bites

Feed a hungry crowd these all-star, feel-good favorites at your next party. Nothing is as comforting as melty, creamy, cheesy, comforting macaroni and cheese. Be still our hearts.

Blue Cheese-Bacon-Spinach Dip

The bold flavor of blue cheese and saltiness of the bacon give a creative punch to your average spinach dip. Serve with celery sticks for an added crunch.

Our Best New Years Eve Appetizers

1. Savory S’mores – Kind of similar to our Honey Brûlée Brie appetizer that we linked above, this is a little unique. We have a yummy herb and cheese cookie recipe (but you can use store bought crackers to cut down on time), topped with prosciutto and a cube of melty brie, then drizzled with honey. Basically, the perfect New Years Eve appetizer – ever.

2. Halloumi Nuggets – These are little, delicious nuggets of salty cheese that are so very addicting. We pair ours with a simple Marinara Sauce, but they would also be delicious with ranch, or romesco!

3. Pizza Wheels – Think of these as the more delicious more adult version of pizza rolls. These are insanely good, and although have them here on this list of New Years Eve Appetizers, I think this recipe is completely a suitable dinner. We made ours with pepperoni, but you can stuff them with your favorite pizza toppings!

4. Hush Puppies – These delicious balls of savory, green onion cornmeal kind of taste like cornbread, but a lighter airier version. We paired these delicious balls of goodness with a spicy honey drizzle. You will want more, make a double batch!

5. Korean Style Cocktail Meatballs – We do have a more classic cocktail meatball – our Ginger Garlic Cocktail Meatballs which I love, but these Korean Style Cocktail Meatballs are so delicious, and I love the flavors so I am suggesting you mix it up for New Years and go with these Korean Style Cocktail Meatballs!

6. Potstickers – People love this recipe! This is a great New Years Eve Appetizer recipe because you can make these ahead and pan fry when you are ready. Make a double batch and freeze some for later!

7. Fried Burrata – This is a delicious one! We fried a whole ball of burrata and then added it to a pool of romesco sauce. It’s so good. Just make sure to handle the burrata carefully while you are breading it so it doesn’t break and you will be good to go!

8. Last but not least we have this recipe for Wonton Mozzarella sticks. We love this recipe because the wonton wrappers really make the prep for this recipe go quick. They also make for a super crispy exterior. Serve with a simple marinara sauce and/or ranch!


6 New Year’s snack and drink recipes to get you out of the kitchen and into the party

Less time prepping, more time partying: It’s an admirable goal anytime you have people over, but especially on New Year’s Eve. Here are two strategies that will have you mixing and mingling in no time.

The first is to make a bunch of snacks ahead of time — pre-assembled dishes you can pull from the oven once guests arrive. The other is to swap out made-to-order cocktails for a make-ahead punch. Prep the base. Then, just add any sparkling ingredients when the first doorbell rings. Sounds like a recipe for a good time, right?

And speaking of recipes, here are six from our archives — three snacks and three drinks — to get you ready for the party.

On the First Day of Christmas This Punch Came to Me. Don’t let the name fool you. This wintry, colorful punch will be a festive addition as you count down to 2020. Be sure to freeze the ice block at least one day before (we added cranberries to our bundt-shaped creation). Make the flavored syrup in advance, so putting this together will be a breeze the day of your party. Extra syrup can flavor seltzer for the nondrinkers, too.

Maple-Bacon Spiced Nuts. As long as you hold off on adding the bacon until the day you plan to serve these spiced nuts, they will be fine made ahead of time. Or, you can skip the bacon entirely, and you’ll still have a tasty snack. Double the batch for a large gathering. They won’t go to waste.

Warm Crab and Spinach Dip. Assemble this luxe-but-lighter appetizer from Ellie Krieger the day before then pop it into the oven as your guests arrive. Add a few minutes of cook time if it has been refrigerated.

Holiday Red Sangria Punch. Sangria, it’s not just for summer! Celebrate New Year’s like the Spanish do while eating grapes and sipping this stunner. It can hang out in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving. Add the ice when ready to serve.

Roasted Feta With Grapes and Olives. This hot cheese dish is adaptable, easy to scale and downright delicious. Assemble it in your dish of choice ahead of time, and be ready to pull it out of the oven once your friends are hanging around with drinks in hand.

Bob’s Your Apple Punch. Yes, another punch. Who doesn’t like a New Year’s punch? It’s got a seasonal feel, too, and your choice of garnishes — star anise, cinnamon sticks, slices of apples — can further dress it up for the party.

For a festive New Year’s table, even an ordinary sandwich can be turned into a luxurious and original treat.

As a snack or compliment, you can serve white or black bread, toasts, croutons, bruschetta and crackers with various toppings. Choose your favorite products and create chic snacks for New Year 2021 with them!

Another idea for serving food in portions is salt dough tartlets, which can be decorated in an original way and filled with any food.
