This spicy chili cheese dip recipe makes a ton. Keep it in a slow cooker on warm and dip away. Creamy, cheesy, spicy, yum!

For seafood lovers, this shrimp and crab dip from Family Spice can be served hot or cold, making it a versatile option for New Year's entertaining.

For retro food-lovers, this homemade port wine cheese ball is where it's at. Tastes like "the real thing" but better! Made with a port wine reduction for loads of flavor.

Crisp, air-fried chicken wings tossed in a garlic and Parmesan sauce. From Nutmeg Nanny, the wings only take 16-18 minutes in the Air Fryer and then get tossed with a quick-to-make sauce.

These gooey fried mozzarella sticks are coated with a crisp potato coating made with dehyrdated potatoes (Idahoan). Deep-fried goodness that tastes like a Pringle wrapped around gooey cheese!

Spicy Korean meatballs glazed with apricot jam and Korean chili paste (gochujang), these little numbers from OMG Yummy bake up in about 10 minutes while you're making the sauce.

As far as I'm concerned, it's not a holiday party without these ham and cheese poppy seed biscuits. With the poppy seed mixture spread on the cut buns rather than poured over the tops, they're addictive and way less messy.

Speaking of addictive, how about some easy, air-fried mushrooms from Fearless Dining? Ready in about 15 minutes, serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.
