Buffalo Chicken Sliders, Finger Food for parties, Football Party Recipes, Game Day Food ideas for Super Bowl, Chicken RecipeBuffalo Chicken Sliders ~ Finger Food Recipe

I happen to be a BIG FAN of Buffalo Chicken, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. But it can be a little messy to eat as a finger food.  These Buffalo Chicken Slider satisfy your craving and make it an easy finger food for any party.  These could be perfect game day food!

Ingredients
½ Cup Blue Cheese Dressing (or ranch if you are not a fan of blue cheese)
½ Cup Sour Cream
6 Tbsp. Butter
½ Cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
3 Chicken Breasts, cooked and shredded*
1 Pkg. Kings Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls
2 Celery Ribs, sliced wafer thin

Instructions

In a small bowl combine the Blue cheese dressing and Sour cream, set aside. In a pan over medium heat melt the Butter and whisk in the Hot sauce. ** Add the Chicken and stir to coat. Once it starts simmering/sizzling let cook for 5-7 minutes to warm through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cover Warm the rolls either in the microwave for 30-45 seconds or in the oven at 300? for 4-6 minutes. Remove the desired number of rolls and cut open, place a heaping teaspoonful of chicken on the bottom half of each roll, spoon some of the dressing over the chicken, top with thinly sliced celery. Serve warm.Buffalo Chicken Sliders, Finger Food for parties, Football Party Recipes, Game Day Food ideas for Super Bowl, Chicken Recipe, Sliders

*You can cook these any way you like. I put them in a nonstick pan with a ¼ cup of water, covered and cooked over medium heat, turning every so often until 170?, then shredded with two forks.

** You can adjust the amount of hot sauce depending on the amount of heat you like. This makes about a medium heat level.

Valentines Healthy Treats, Grape Hearts, quick and easy to make perfect for school parties, Healthy Snacks, DIYValentine’s Day Grape Hearts ~ Healthy Valentines Treats

Valentine’s Day is all about the hearts, so why not treat kids to these tasty and healthy hearts shaped grapes? You can make your own Valentine’s Day heart grapes in just minutes, and using no more than a handful of grapes and dollar store heart picks. Here is how you can get started crafting your own, just in time for Valentine’s Day parties and gatherings! Perfect for school parties or think how excited your kids would be to find these inside thier lunch box!

Supplies needed:

  • Large, fresh grapes (red grapes work great!)
  • Heart picks (sold at Dollar Tree in a package along with cupcake cups)
  • Knife

If you can’t find the picks like we used here, you can always use toothpicks to hold your hearts together. As mentioned ours were found at Dollar Tree, sold along with the cupcake cups as cupcake toppers.

Directions:

1. Begin by washing and drying your grapes well.
2. Cut each grape in half at an angle. Refer to the photo to see how to make this cut. Simply cutting the grape in half won’t work. You need to be sure the cut is made at an angle.
3. Turn one grape upside down so that when pressed together, the grapes make a heart shape.
4. Run a skewer, toothpick, or pick through the grapes to hold them together and retain the heart shape.

Your Valentine’s Day grape hearts are ready to be enjoyed. Have children munch on them as is or you can serve them with yogurt or fruit dip.

Football Superbowl party ideas,  Gameday Drinks, low cost and easy ways to decorate for game day, Football Food, Game day recipes made easy and budget freindly

I have been sharing ideas from our FOOTBALL PARTY we had for my son.  We made Gameday Drink Cups, I just love how they turned out.  All you need is clear plastic cups, a sharpie marker and something green to drink.  We used green Koolaid, but you could also use sprite with green food coloring, green poweraid, green smoothies or even ice water colored green.  Use the sharpie marker to make lines on the cup to look like a football field.  It is best to do this BEFORE you put the liquid in.  To jazz them up a bit we use Football Stickers and green straws.
