7 Food and Dessert Ideas for a Birthday Party
Whether you’re looking for something sweet or savory, we have you covered. So get ready to start planning your next birthday bash!
- Mini mac & cheese bites
Mac & cheese is always a favorite at parties. It’s hard to beat the creamy, cheesy deliciousness —until now. Instead of putting out a tray of baked
Mac and cheese for the meal, make it an appetizer everyone will love.
All you need are a few muffin trays, your favorite Mac and cheese recipe, and some love!
- Sweet potato bites
If you love the warm and rich flavors of the holidays, make sure you include these sweet potato and goat cheese bites on your birthday party menu. They’re so easy to make that you might feel weird taking credit for them!
Slice sweet potatoes into small medallions, which you bake in the oven until crisp (don’t forget a sprig or two of fresh rosemary on that tray!). Then mix creamy goat cheese with a pinch of thyme, and a small splash of milk.
Add your cheese into a piping bag, and load up those crispy potatoes. Arrange them onto a serving tray, and lightly drizzle with honey for a flavor-packed party snack that is guaranteed to disappear.
- Pizza rolls
Whether you’re a culinary expert or can’t figure out how to boil water, you can’t go wrong with a tray of pizza rolls. Buy packages from the freezer section of your favorite grocery store, or make them from scratch.
To make from scratch, preheat the oven to 350°F and roll out your pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Spread on your favorite sauce, top with shredded mozzarella cheese (shred yourself for better melting), pepperoni slices, and whatever other toppings you like.
Then roll it all up into one big log, slice into pieces, and place them onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.
- Pretzel bites with beer cheese
Speaking of party snacks that are impossible to resist: pretzel bites! These little guys always disappear fast at gatherings, but we don’t mind because they are extremely easy to make. Check out this recipe if you’re feeling adventurous.
- Taco bar
Now let’s talk about mealtime. Everybody loves a good taco, but what about a taco bar? Let your guests customize their tacos however they want. Just purchase ingredients and prep everything ahead of time.
Taco-seasoned ground-beef, grilled chunks of chicken breast, and seasoned black beans make great taco fillers that everyone (vegans and vegetarians included) will be able to enjoy.
For toppings, make sure you grill up some bell peppers and onions, shred plenty of lettuce, put out some sour cream, shredded cheese, and anything else you might like. Set everything out on a long table for your birthday party guests to enjoy at their own pace.
- Sushi roll party
If you love sushi, this will make any birthday party a hit. It’s perfect for sushi lovers of all levels of expertise. If you don’t have a rice cooker, check out this recipe for making the perfect sushi rice. Provide some easy to follow instructions and everyone will be able to make their own rolls.
For the fillings, some cooked shrimp, raw tuna and salmon (only the highest quality, of course). Set out nori sheets, sushi rice, avocado, sliced celery, cucumber, carrot, cream cheese, and any other desired toppings like soy sauce, wasabi, or pickled ginger. Then let your guests get creative!
- Chocolate fondue
What’s a birthday party without dessert? Chocolate fondue is always a crowd-pleaser. It’s simple to make and only requires a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. All you need is heavy cream, chocolate chips, vanilla extract, and a little bit of sugar.
Simply melt everything together in a double-boiler over low heat until it becomes smooth and creamy.
Take your dessert (and party) to the next level with a sweet cannabis-infused treat for everyone! To learn more about how to make cannabis cookies, check out this article on Veriheal.
No matter what your budget is, there are plenty of great food and dessert options for your next birthday party. Just remember to have fun and enjoy the company of your friends and family!
