There are some foods that are hard to dislike, even for those with the pickiest palettes. If you want to win over your family with pre-New Year's dinner appetizers or wow your friends at an NYE house party, try these fun recipes for delicious party snacks. The surprisingly simple, homemade twists on everyone's favorite foods (who can argue with red velvet cake and mac 'n cheese?) are bite-sized for easy snacking and sure to please even the biggest food snob.

From homemade Hostess cupcakes (yes, the marshmallow fluff-filled ones) to fried ravioli with a marinara dip, these recipes can be made in less than an hour by mixing inexpensive, pre-made ingredients which you may already have at home. And nobody will ever guess that you didn't make them from scratch! Serve with one of these delicious, non-alcohol punches and you'll be the host or hostess with the mostess.
