Halloween Party 2016

It is that time of year! Halloween for me is the official kick off of the Holidays. I love our annual party and this starts all my entertaining for the year. Instead of doing a giant meal this year I did a ton of appetizers and from the meatballs to the spinach & artichoke dip no one left unhappy. I want to share some of my favorite recipes from that night with you below.

Fall Sangria

What you need~                                                 
1 bottle of Pinot Grigio                           
1/2 gallon apple cider
1 cup of brandy
Ginger Ale to fill rest of pitcher
2 apples
1 pear
3 plums

Combine and chill in fridge for at least 4 hours before serving. Chop up the fruit before adding.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

What you need~
1 can of white beans                                     
1 package of frozen chopped spinach
1 can of artichoke hearts (blended in food processor)
4 ounces of cream cheese
1 small Greek yogurt (plain)
Tablespoon of minced garlic
Seasoning (I used a white wine powder packet)

Add all to your crockpot and put on high until warm. Then turn to the warm setting. Serve with chips or bread.

Jalapeno jam spread

What you need~
8 ounces of cream cheese
Jalapeno jam to cover
Caramel sauce to top

Place your cream cheese on the platter and top with the jam. Use just enough jam to cover. Top with the caramel sauce. Serve with crackers.

Everyone had a great time at the party. The sangria was gone in no time at all. I love this annual party it was so fun. We played a cool game you may want to check out Utter Nonsense . My friends Maggie and  Marshal introduced us and it was a big hit. Now it is off to trick or treat with the kids tonight. Be safe!

Until next time~
