New Year's Eve Pajama Party Food

When you’re planning a theme party, you want to have at least a few food and drink offerings that are in line with your party theme. Even if you’re just going to rename something normal for the evening and label it with a buffet card. The New Year’s Eve pajama party brought to mind sleepover food: late night munchies and breakfast treats! Here are a few so easy-to-make ideas to make your party super fun:

Milk and Cookie Bar

Toast to midnight with a milk and cookie bar. Mix up carafes of different flavored milk (in an ice bucket if it’s sitting out all night!) and set out champagne glasses to drink from. Don’t forget the cookies! Here we opted for tiny cookies that could be grabbed by the handful, but a lovely tray of full sized cookies would be wonderful here as well!


Chicken and Waffle New Year's Eve Appetizer

Fun and super easy to do. Purchase frozen mini waffles and frozen chunky chicken nuggets. Prepare both according to their packages.

To assemble, put a few tablespoons of syrup in a shot glass, place the toasted waffle over the top, then the chicken nugget on the waffle. Make everything stay together with a toothpick through the top. Extra style points if it’s a fancy toothpick!


Pancake Stacks

The freezer aisle has miniature frozen pancakes that takes the prep work out of this appetizer. Heat them up according to the directions, put a few in a stack and top with a pat of butter or whipped cream. Add a fancy toothpick or fruit as garnish.


Bunny Slipper Bon Bons

These are much easier to make than they look like. Make bunny ears out of store-bought white fondant and let the fondant harden. This takes a few hours.

Buy pre-made brownie bites, then mash them into balls. Dip the balls into white candy melt and roll in coconut flakes. Add the ears to the top while the candy is still soft. Plop your fluffy bunny on top of an oval shaped cookie. If you’re up for it, you can also add eyes and a bunny nose with a tube of gel decorating frosting.
