Need help with NYE appetizers

The Oracle | Dec 29, 2011 11:31 AM

I'm hosting a very small group of people (maybe 5-7) at my house to ring in the New Year. We are beginning late (around 10pm) and everyone will have eaten dinner prior. It's mostly just snacks to nibble on while drinking champagne/cocktails, etc as we ring in the new year together.

I ALWAYS overdo it when it comes to food at social gatherings. I spend way too much time making too many things and end up working way too hard and having too much food.

How many appetizers do you think I should make? Does 3-4 sound about right? Also, any ideas for any favorites? I love to try new recipes and don't really have any current 'go to' selections that are a must.

Ideally, these would be made ahead and then either pop them in the oven and serve or prepare and serve cold. I'll have most of the day to prep.
