Oscar Party recipes

Raspberry Champagne Cocktails recipe Herbed Deviled Egg recipe Easy Salted Chocolate and Caramel Tarts Easy Salted Chocolate and Caramel Tarts Herbed Deviled Egg recipe Good Morning America asked us to create some perfectly easy recipes to celebrate the Oscars. You all know we love making cute little appetizers so obviously we were so excited. For our menu we decided on a simple yet elegant cocktail, an herbed deviled egg, and a really yummy salted caramel and chocolate tart! All of these recipes are really simple and easy to throw together. We also think our Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip would be great if you’re in the mood for a dip. You may also want to try Korean Style Cocktail Meatballs, which is a personal favorite.

We also have a couple of really quick and easy tips to decorate your Oscar Party.
The first one is edible gold. I know we have mentioned this before but you can add a little bit of edible gold to anything, like we did with our Salted Caramel and Chocolate Tarts, and it will automatically take it up a notch. We found ours at an Asian market, but you can easily order it online after a quick google search.

For our Oscar party decorations, we used a combination of tissue paper garlands, as well as garlands we made out of gold tinsel pom poms. The gold tinsel pom poms are inexpensive and really easy to make into a garland. We used a regular needle and thread, and half inch and one inch tinsel pom poms. You could also use the tinsel pom poms glued to the top of skewers to make really festive swizzle sticks for your drinks! They’re so versatile!

An easy way to dress up plain paper plates is to use edible gold spray paint. You can tape off part of the plate and spray only a corner for a nice pop of color. You can also lay parchment paper over the area of the plate you wish to block off. A large re-closeable plastic bag also works, just place the plate inside with a corner left out and spray away!

We don’t know about all of you but we are so excited to check out everyone’s dresses. That’s the best part right? What are you guys planning for the Oscars?

1/2 teaspoon minced dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
pinch sugar

1/4 cup heavy cream

    Attending a ’70s-themed party (“American Hustlin’ “) where fondue will be the star. I’m planning on bringing mini quiches, the boyfriend is likely bringing porcupine meatballs, and my movie guru buddy is going to pick my winners for me in hopes that I can win the competition. Should be a good time!
