On New Year's Eve, whether you're hosting a party for many or a party for one, you'll probably want festive treats. And one of the most popular routes to go for New Year's Eve party food is an assortment of appetizers.
Party appetizers can be inspired by cuisine from around the world. The great thing is that anything goes as long as it's small or it can be shared. Our elegant international appetizer recipes will have your guests too busy savoring every bite to sing Auld Lang Syne:
