Tasty Treats For Your New Year's Eve Party

If you're entertaining this New Year's Eve, keep your guests happy with these delicious finger foods.

With the booze likely to be free-flowing this NYE, it's important your party guests eat a little something throughout the night.

While it may be difficult to plan a sit-down dinner, it's much easier to whip up some canapes and snacks to plonk on a table and have guests serve themselves.

After all, you don't want to spend all night in the kitchen. 

Here are some ideas to kickstart your NYE party menu. 

Lemon Prawn Sliders

It's summer in Australia, so no party is complete without a bit of seafood. These prawn sliders are as simple as seafood gets.
