With the holidays in full swing, it’s time to come up with a new, festive way to dine and celebrate with your family and friends. As such, this brings me to part two of my holiday post series; I am continuing with the holiday theme and the
spinach pastry post with an idea geared for New Year’s Eve - a quick recipe for canapés.
Why specially canapés? Well, little nibbles and bites are a crucial part of throwing a party, especially when Christmas and New Years are concerned.
The canapé recipe is sweet and can even pass off as a healthy treat because it contains dates, coconut, and is covered with matcha powder. In fact, the dish is actually energy date balls that I called canapé just for the sake of festivity. These date balls are very easy to make, are vegan and again, are very healthy on their own. For the garnish, I created a little Christmassy decoration made out of pretzel sticks and chocolate, while this is less healthy, it does look gorgeous!
The plates I chose to serve the canapés on are from my favorite distributor, ZAK Design Europe. And can I just say that they like my blog and recipes (which is amazing) and hey, I like their products! It’s a win-win. If you are looking for a fun gift for family and friends, you can combine plates and bowls of different sizes and maybe add a few glasses too. A real foodie will appreciate that kind of gift!
And in the words of Taylor Swift…ready for it? Ahh yes, it really is the holidays.
Optional- for that extra Christmassy decoration!
