You have the decorations up and the drinks ready but who wants to spend the entire party in the kitchen?!. Here are some great recipes that will keep you on the dance floor.
1. Crustless Mini Quiche
- Step 1: Preheat oven to 180C/160C. Grease eighteen 80ml (1/3 cup) non-stick bun pans with butter. Or use silicone bun cases.
- Step 2: Whisk 6 eggs and add salt and pepper
- Step 3: You can add anything you want to these. Keep it veggie with mushrooms and peppers, odd chorizo or ham for a meat feast
- Step 4: Fry veg so to soften and spread evenly in bun cases.
- Step 5: Pour in whisked egg and sprinkle tops with cheese.
- Step 6: Bake for approx 20-25min until just set. These can be cooked in advance or works well delicious as a quick breakfast!
These gorgeous no-bake treats from bbcgoodfood always go down well. Adults and kids love them!
- Step 1: Crush the digestive biscuits in a food processor or in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, then put them in a large mixing bowl. Chop each marshmallow into 4 pieces and add to the bowl with the cherries and 175ml condensed milk. Mix until the ingredients are well combined and you have a sticky mixture. If it’s too dry, add a splash more condensed milk.
- Step 2: Sprinkle most of the coconut over a large piece of cling film (or foil). Tip the mixture onto the coconut and shape into a long sausage, about 30 x 5cm. Sprinkle more coconut over the top of it and wrap the cling film tightly around, twisting the ends together. Leave in the fridge to chill for 4-6 hrs, then cut into 15 slices and serve. Will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week wrapped in cling film.
- TIP: If it is too hot in the kitchen these can get a bit awkward so make them on a cool day or in the evening time.

4. Grape Cheese Balls
I know this recipe from eatwell101 sounds a bit odd but the combination of salty-sweet is amazing and fantastic with a glass of wine!. Bring your fruit and cheese platter to the next level.
1. Wash grapes and pat them dry. Chop hazelnuts and pistachios or crush them in a blender.
2. Next, roll the grapes between your palms in goat cheese pieces. Make sure to cover each individual grape well in the cheese.
3. Then spread gently a dash of honey on each goat-cheese-covered-grape and roll them individually in chopped hazelnuts or pistachios. Slice in half or leave them whole. Refrigerate until serving or eat them straight away with toothpicks.
5. Chocolate Hazelnut Cheescake
The wonderful versatile cheesecake recipe from bbcgoodfood is the perfect way to finish off a fab party. Try putting it in individual bun cases before putting it in the fridge to set for mini treats! (you can even top with a truffle, we won’t judge)
