Food on a Stick and Handheld Appetizer Recipes

Food on a stick and other handheld appetizers can be ideal party food. Not only is it easy for your guests to eat, but it also lessens the mess for you. No need to mess with lots of plates and silverware if the food is already on a stick. Just supply some tiny plates and pretty napkins and you are all set.

The waffle food on a stick recipes sound really good. I think it is more fun to eat without silverware and clean up would be easier.
