“Rocking around the Christmas tree
at the Christmas party hop”

Office parties, pot lucks, Christmas concerts…..the list of holiday parties are filling up our calendars and it seems like every time we open an email or answer a text we have another social gathering to attend. But what to bring? 

When we think of flavours of late autumn and winter, the mind conjures up images and scents of seasonal favourites like pumpkin, cranberry, nutmeg and cinnamon. What about whipping them all together into one creative twist for a festive holiday appetizer that will have them coming back for more.

Despite being incredibly tasty, it’s just plain gorgeous, am I right? Ruby coloured berries and light green pumpkin seeds all drizzled in a golden honey and topped onto a bed of lightly spiced whole grain wheat…..it’s a feast for the eyes and the belly!

Having the spread in log form makes it really easy to take along with you to holiday parties. But if you are hosting at your own house this year, you could save yourself the hassle of rolling the cheese and just whip it altogether in a little dish instead or even pre-spread your Triscuits and serve the appetizers on a pretty platter. Drizzle each cracker with the honey.

So what’s your snacking style? Sweet? Savoury? Crunchy?

What I love about this party appetizer is it has so much going on! The creamy smooth goat cheese paired with a Triscuit crunch, sweet cranberries and salty seeds, nutmeg and cinnamon spice, and that honey is drizzle is not to be skipped!

    This looks delicious, I’d have to substitute walnuts for the pumpkin seeds but I reckon that would taste delicious too eh?

  2. Chandra O’Connor says:

    I get them already made at No Frills they are so good.

      I’ve never compared prices to a ready made one, but I do love using ingredients I already have in the kitchen. I like pumpkin seeds and cranberries on my salads.
