The BEST Oscars Party Snacks

The BEST Oscars Party Snacks

February 25, 2011   4 Comments

I know you are all dying to know what Snack Girl is serving at her Oscars party. Well, I promise, it will be a total blast.

Shrimp, champagne, sushi, caviar, roast beef, wild mushrooms, cream puffs, raspberries flown in from Brazil, and those cute little mini-eclairs......zzzzz......

And, then, I woke up.

No, actually, I'm not having an Oscars Party. But, I am having an "Oscars Picnic" in front of the television because I LOVE the Oscars. Those dresses, the speeches, and the warm California sun take me away from it all for a few hours.

My kids just sit there and complain about it "not being a kid's movie". We are taking a break from movies to celebrate, well, movies.

What will I serve? I like to have a combination of packaged snacks and prepared snacks so I can just enjoy the show. What I will not serve are frozen pizza snacks, seven layer dip, or buffalo chicken wings.

But, my picnic WILL be tasty.

I will have packaged hummus and pretzel sticks (for dipping). Then, I will have made some roasted broccoli to munch on.

If I get off my butt RIGHT NOW, I will make some pickled carrots because they are seriously addictive (and will keep me away from the chips my husband loves).

To add some heft to my snacks, I will make turkey sliders, which I like at room temperature. And, my dessert snack will be the kettle corn makeover that my kids love.

So, I will make most of these snacks myself and save some money. It will probably take me around an hour, and I have a lovely array of food to share while I wonder how those actresses walk in those shoes.

Do you want to come over to make it a party? I always make too much :)

Here is a list of the snacks I am serving and a few other suggestions for your Oscars party.

I make baked broccoli all the time at home and love your spin on the dish. Kids really do eat broccoli when you roast it. The crispyness is great and mine love it. Adding some sugar is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
