New Year’s Eve food and dinner ideas, according to TikTok
New Years Eve may be the ultimate time to celebrate, as it wraps up the past 12 months perfectly and offers a great way to kick off the big calendar turnaround on a positive (and hopeful) note.
And whether you’re entertaining guests or just enjoying a quiet night’s sleep, New Years Eve wouldn’t be the same without a tempting selection of snacks or something a little more special and substantial.
So, read on to discover some of the best TikTok recipes suitable for a party or a tasty treat all alone at home this New Years Eve.
Take a packet of Oreo cookies and mix them in a food processor, add 8 ounces of cream cheese and mix well.
Roll 1 tablespoon of the resulting mixture into a ball shape and place them on a baking sheet, then cool in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, take 8 oz of melted almond peel or candy and melt in the microwave until liquid.
Take the now chilled balls and dip them individually in the white sauce – creator Mallory Hudson reassures viewers that “it doesn’t have to be perfect.”
Finally, gold glitter is added to the white balls “for a little more flair”.
Creator LiamsLunchBox begins the recipe by picking a selection of fresh red and green grapes and washing them thoroughly in a bowl of water.
Then a bottle of champagne is poured over the grapes, ensuring that each comes in contact with the sparkling wine.
Finally, roll each grape in powdered sugar and invite your NYE guests to add them to their sparkling glass to toast in style as the New Year arrives.
New Year’s Eve firecrackers
Designer Mississippi_Kween demonstrated how to make her spicy crackers, which she plans to eat while spending New Years Eve “watching fireworks with the kids.”
She starts the NYE dish by emptying an entire box of salted crackers into a large bowl.
Then, in a separate bowl, she adds a cup of vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon of chili flakes and a packet of ranch seasoning mix, which is then combined vigorously with a whisk.
This is then added to the crackers, before the bowl is covered and shaken well.
After about an hour of rest, the food blogger adds a light dusting of pepper, before declaring her canapes ready to be served.
Designer Mallory Hudson describes her chocolate popcorn recipe as an “easy New Years Eve snack idea.”
She takes a cup of dark chocolate chips and another of white chocolate chips and melts them separately.
Hudson then pours the resulting chocolate liquid onto a baking sheet filled with salted popcorn.
Before letting the mixture set, she finally adds a fine dusting of edible golden nuggets.
The last step is to simply break the popcorn pieces into chunks and serve them in a large bowl.
“Lucky” fruit tarts for New Year’s Eve
Designer YouthSweets captioned her video TikTok thinking “food can bring you luck in the New Year.”
She rolls out store-bought dough and cuts it to fit snugly on the base and sides of the pie tins.
Then prick the bottom with a fork, line with baking paper, then bake blank according to the pastry instructions until you are ready.
Now, finely chop the white chocolate “to keep a soggy bottom”, before melting it and generously brushing the bottom of each dough.
An orange, which the cook says can help bring “fortune, wealth and money” is zest and squeezed.
Now mix several tablespoons of liquid honey and butter and whisk well until combined. Then introduce five eggs and continue to mix.
Add the orange juice and zest and heat until the curd thickens to a consistency similar to custard and pour into the pastry bases.
In another bowl, combine the white grape juice and gelatin, then pour into molds and let set.
Finally, add white grape jelly on top of the pie and sprinkle lightly with pomegranate seeds to create a stunning look.
BBQ meatballs and sausages
Designer Ashley Campbell reposted her tasty meatball recipe on TikTok in time for New Years Eve.
It combines a packet of homemade meatballs, another of smoked cocktail sausages, a whole jar of barbecue sauce and a jar of concentrated grape jelly.
This mixture is then well combined in a slow cooker.
The last instruction for this easiest NYE recipe is to heat it in a slow cooker on high power for four hours, then on low for another six hours.
Mini hot dogs
Chef Koudy thinks his California mini hot dogs are worthy of being served on New Years Eve.
He first fry the sausages and bacon in a pan, until they sizzle invitingly.
Then he places a thinly sliced ââavocado in a hot dog bun, adds a slice of crispy bacon, then a sausage.
Finally, a salsa of red onions, fresh herbs and tomatoes is sprinkled on top, before the dish is completed with a splash of burger sauce.
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Designer Genies_Life describes her dish as “one of the easiest dips to make for a party or game day.”
She starts by combining frozen thawed spinach, drained artichoke hearts, softened cream cheese, sour cream, grated Parmesan cheese and mayonnaise in a bowl.
Then seasonings such as salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika are added, before the whole mixture is properly combined.
The mixture should now be placed in an eight inch baking dish, where it should be baked for 25 minutes at 375F (190C).
The food blogger suggests her dip can be served with fries, veggies, or Hawaiian bread.
Festive Fruit Dip
The chef at At_Home_Cook says his âchewy and deliciousâ fruit dip is âso easy to makeâ, which makes it perfect on the go for vacation gatherings.
It combines a stick of softened butter, 8 oz of softened whipped cream cheese, half a cup of marshmallow cream and 8 oz of softened whipped topping.
This mixture is then well combined using an electric whisk, before adding pineapple juice and fresh lemon juice to taste.
French meat: “The Russian recipe”
TikTok creator ViktoriaCohan describes her intriguingly named recipe as “the best New Years dish.”
She starts by taking two cubed steaks and spread them out on a baking sheet, where generous amounts of salt and black pepper are scattered on top.
A finely grated white onion is then placed on top, which is then accompanied by freshly shaped potato sticks.
The grated mozzarella is then layered on top, followed by several generous spoons of mayonnaise.
The baking sheet is then placed in a preheated 350F oven, where it should be baked for an hour, before serving.
Creator Mallory Hudson suggests this recipe is “perfect for making something last minute” because “your friends will love it.”
Start by slicing French bread and brush each slice with flavored olive oil with a touch of seasoning.
Now place in the oven for a minute or two, until each slice is lightly browned.
Next, add a generous dollop of Burrata Soft Cheese, then add about the same amount of Tomato Basil Bruschetta Dough on top.
Hudson suggests adding a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction on each slice as a final step, which she promises will take her creation “to the next level.”
