What’s a Party with out Snacks?

Now that we’re finished with the introductions it’s time to bring out the food for the Ultimate Blog Party. Here’s the recipes for some of my favorite things to make for a party or bring to a friend’s house.

Mocha Punch

This yummy jolt of caffeine and sugar will keep the guests partying all night!

2 cups hot water

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 (2 oz. ) jar instant coffee

1 gallon milk

1 24 oz. bottle Hershey chocolate

1 gallon vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream

In large pan bring water and sugar almost to a boil, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Add instant coffee, stir and cover. Let steep until cool. Add milk and chocolate syrup. Pour into punch bowl. Add the ice cream in small scoops and serve.

Southwest Cream Cheese Chicken Roll-ups

I always took these to office potlucks when I was working. They got rave reviews. 

1 cup cream cheese

1 cup Pace Picante Sauce

1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

1 cup shredded chicken

1 package flour tortillas

Mix together softened cream cheese, picante sauce, shredded cheese and chicken. Spread a thin layer on a tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down in a covered container. Repeat until cream cheese mixture is gone. Refrigerate over night. Slice tortilla rolls into 1 inch rounds. Return to fridge until ready to serve.

Veggie Pizza

Salad you can eat with your fingers.

2 packages crescent rolls

2 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened

1 cup mayo

1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped cauliflower

1/2 cup chopped broccoli

1/2 cup chopped radishes

1/2 cup chipped celery

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1/2 cup chopped carrots

1/2 cup chopped tomato

8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

Press crescent rolls into jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let cool. Mix together cream cheese, mayo and Hidden Valley ranch Dressing. Spread over rolls and top with the veggies. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and cut into squares. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Blueberry Torte

This simple cheese cake-like recipe is from my Grandma Awald. Many of the memories I have with her took place in the kitchen preparing big family meals.

Graham Cracker Crust

1 1/2 cups crushed Graham Crackers

1 stick of margarine, melted

4 tbs sugar

Preheat oven to 375. Mix together crumbs, margarine and sugar. Press into a 9×13 baking dish. Bake 5 to 7 minutes.


8 oz. cream cheese softened

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat ingredients together very well. Pour mixture on top of crust. Bake for 15 minutes at 375.

Blueberry Topping

1 quart blueberries

4 tbs corn starch

3/4 cup sugar

Mix cornstarch and sugar with enough water to cover bottom of a medium sauce pan. Cook until thick. Cool and pour over baked cream cheese filling. Refrigerate. Just before serving cover with whip cream.
