Try These No-Fuss Snack Hacks Next Time You Have Guests

Impress your friends with your elevated snack servings.


( It happens: sometimes, visitors just show up at your doorstep unannounced and you’re faced with a problem—what to feed them. The next time you have unexpected guests over, don’t panic. Here are some easy-to-do, bisita-worthy snacks that won’t have you scrambling all over the place for a bite.  



Peanut butter and banana sandwich

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are safe bets, but you can shake things up by replacing the jelly with bananas. Think of it as a less sugary option.


Fruit cups

Fill a glass with slices of fresh fruits such as melons, grapes, and pineapples. For extra sweetness, add cream or yogurt into the mix before chilling it in the fridge for a few minutes.


Pizza bites

Make a bite-sized pizza using a cracker or a thin slice of toasted bread as your base. Layer it with tomato sauce and grated cheese before topping with pieces of ham or pepperoni.



Veggie platter

Grab a carrot, celery, or turnip from the pantry, cut them into sticks, and serve on a plate with a bowl of dip—voila!


Cheese skewers

Using a toothpick, skewer a small piece of fruit and a sliced block of cheese. To create a more sizable kebab, thread your morsels through a barbecue stick instead. 




Pressed for time? You can’t go wrong with chips—it’s a classic crowd-pleaser, especially when there are exciting flavors in the mix. In fact, if you really want to level up your snack station, dish up a sweet and spicy combo.
