7 Finger-Licking Finger Foods to Satisfy a Crowd

It’s official—cozy season has arrived. While almost everyone loved spending time outdoors in summer and early fall, it’s now time for gathering together inside with your family and friends, having hot drinks and comforting food. 

We totally love these get-togethers, where everyone brings their favorite food, and you can give new dishes a try—just the way you like (and more often than not, you like it all). Whether it's a relaxed weekend brunch, a cozy birthday party, or a spontaneous weeknight-dinner with friends—finger food is always a good idea.

The benefits are obvious: No one has to spend the whole day in the kitchen preparing a huge buffet, and potential allergies or fancy dietary preferences of your guests are no longer a problem, since there will be a wide range of food for everyone’s taste.
