I tried to include a selection of sweet and savory party fare and many of the recipes you will find below are healthy, too. I hope something catches your eye! Enjoy!
Easy Party Food Recipes
If you love Chex mix as much as I do (and that’s A LOT), you MUST make this recipe. It’s slightly sweet with the perfect amount of heat. I’ve made it a few times for friends and family and those who love sriracha flip over this one!
Popcorn. Cinnamon. Honey. Peanut butter. That’s all you need to make this recipe! It could not be any easier and is sure to please the peanut butter lovers at your next party. This addicting recipe can easily be tripled or quadrupled to serve a big group… but don’t assume you’ll have any leftovers!
This protein-packed vegetable dip tastes like ranch dressing but it’s so much creamier! Serve it with your favorite fresh veggies for a healthy and colorful appetizer.
This salad continues to be one of the most popular recipes featured on PBF and with good reason. It’s always a crowd pleaser and can be served as either a dip with a side of crispy tortilla chips or as a healthy and filling entrée or side salad. The best part? The amount of work/chopping to prep this dish is very minimal. It comes together in a flash!
I regularly prep a batch of these almonds for a healthy grab-and-go snack (I also love them on top of salads or crushed and tossed with my favorite roasted veggies) and think they make a tasty addition to any party spread.
Greek yogurt, almond butter and cinnamon come together to make a sweet and slightly tangy healthy fruit dip. Pair this one with fresh strawberries and apple slices for a tasty treat!
Simply combine coconut, mango, dates, walnuts and pineapple to make a simple, no-bake energy bar that you can throw together in no time at all.
This recipe for cilantro shrimp and avocado salad is a personal favorite. With so many different flavors and textures, it’s a surefire hit with seafood and avocado lovers! Serve it with tortilla chips or Triscuits for a party-friendly appetizer.
These brunch sliders are a fun alternative to savory mini sandwiches and use fresh fruit, strawberry cream cheese, peanut butter and cinnamon to create a sweet grab-and-go treat!
These truffles taste like brownie batter and don’t require any time in the oven. With only four good-for-you ingredients, you can make these in a flash and be out the door in no time at all. Perfect for the procrastinators out there who also happen to have a sweet tooth!
Can you tell I love roasted nuts? This recipe for cinnamon coconut roasted cashews is another tasty one that makes a delicious party snack food but also tastes great on top of Greek yogurt, overnight oats or even ice cream!

Rachel @ Simply Rachel Nicole says
These are perfect for me to take to my sister’s super bowl party!!! Now I just have to decide which one to bring ha!
Lauren C. says
Go Panthers!!!!!!!! I’ll be watching (hopefully) from the bar at our resort on our honeymoon in St. Lucia on Sunday. Never thought when we booked this that my team would make it to the end 🙂
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West says
I’m all over the Greek yogurt dip! I’ve made that twice for recent parties. 🙂
I’m hosting a valentines day party next weekend and these good, healthy options sound fantastic! 😀
Being from Boston, and the Patriots being thisclose to being in it again, we won’t be watching. New Englanders are sports snobs and it’s our team or forget it.
But… that doesn’t mean we won’t eat like we are watching the Super Bowl. Yummy snacks!
Good Luck Panthers!!!
Marina D says
I’m all about bringing some homemade guac and sweet potato chips! Easy and yummy are the way to go 🙂

Yum! I also love bbq cauliflower bites and good old fashioned mozzarella sticks!
I’m always in charge of deviled eggs. I make them with the adobo sauce from chiles in adobo. Smoky, spicy & delicious!
Jessica @ Semi-Sweet Tooth says
Love it – this is my second Super Bowl in Denver and I’m totally on board with all of the craziness! I’ll be screaming “Unite in Orange” like I’m a native Denver-ite over here, ha.
I’ll be making an AMAZING dip that will be on my blog tomorrow, but I might have to add that spicy Chex Mix. That sounds like a fantastic add to any party!
Alyssa @ renaissancerunnergirl says
I am not the biggest sports fan either, and neither team is super popular in my area. But my BF wants Peyton Manning to go out on top, so I’ll be making that greek yogurt dip to root for the Broncos!
These recipes are great! One of my favorite (ok it’s my all time favorite) dishes to bring to a party is buffalo chicken dip! I make mine with non fat cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, low fat ranch dressing, Franks buffalo sauce, and baked chicken. I also love to bring (baked) toasted ravioli!
Ok that peanut butter popcorn looks too good!! Right up my alley 😉 I might have to make some too.
I’m an honorary Panthers friend because my best friend lives in Charlotte. I’d be in big trouble if I didn’t root for them!
Oh man that cinnamon peanut butter popcorns sounds amazing! I’ll have to make that this weekend!
Rachel @ Never Enough Novels says
Guacamole is my go-to. It’s super easy to make, just mash up some avocados with diced tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, garlic salt, pepper, and salt and you’re done!
Kelli @ Hungry Hobby says
I thought my Super Bowl party recipes were easy, these don’t require an oven! I’m all over that microwave Sriracha mix!
