TIP: Presentation is everything. Paper doilies are an inexpensive way to serve things as well. You can get doilies at Michael's or Joann's Fabrics. Also ask your local baker for desert cloths or doilies or find out where they get them.

1. Strawberries and Chocolate

Buy the chocolate syrup that hardens on ice cream. Get a big flat dish and set wax paper down on it. Pour syrup into a cup and dip the strawberries halfway into chocolate, then lay them out starting from the outside, moving in towards center of dish and place in frig to harden. They will melt quickly so make sure your guest is ready to eat these before serving. The longer they stay cool, the harder the chocolate stays.

2. Hummus and Crackers

There's garlic in Hummus, may not be good for your breath or your date's. But if you do #10, you'll be fine.

Best served with Sea Salt crackers or Toasted. The firmer the better. You don't want them crumbling all over the place. Serve on 2 separate dishes.

3. Cheese, Crackers and Grapes

A nice Pepper Jack or mild Cheddar on a saltine or Wheat Thin is a great little snack. Cut into small thin squares, place on dish with crackers and grapes.

4. Olives on Toothpicks

Olives are by far the best snacks to serve and eat. Stab each one with a toothpick and lay them on a dish but don't just place them on a dish because they lay out juices. You'll want to use the doilies on these. If you don't have doilies, you can use a paper towel.

5. Peanuts, Pretzels and Cheese Its

Mix them all in a bowl or get the Chex Mix. They pop in your mouth and are great to nibble on while you're getting to know each other.

6. Mozzarella Sticks

Lay them out on a paper towel on a dish and put a side of ketchup or marinara sauce in a small dipping cup.

TIP: Invest in a serving tray for snacks. They're not expensive, come if many colors and you can pick them up at the dollar store. Great for chips and dips. Everyone should have one of these in the kitchen.

7. Carrot Sticks and Celery Sticks with Dip

Slice a few carrots the long way and stick them in a tall glass filled halfway with water and leave in the frig until your guest arrives. Great with French Onion Dip or Spinach Dip.

8. Bread Sticks

Just like in restaurants, bread sticks never go out of style. Put them in a tall glass or cool looking cup and set them next to a pitcher of cool water or drink. It's always good to have something another snack there as well like cheese cubes.

9. Biscotti

A perfect treat for coffee, this Italian favorite is always in my home. They even have chocolate covered ones! You can either lay these down on a dish, napkin or upright in a nice cup.

10. Candies

Always, always have a dish full of candy in your home, like if you're ready for trick or treaters. A bowl of must have mints, (for after dinner breath or just before kissing), will put any guest at ease. Chocolate miniature bars, Hershey's Kisses, lollipops and gum. Put it on a high shelf so you don't eat them and bring them down when company comes over. I find this is great to have around when I have friends with kids drop in as well.
