No Oscar Party is complete without a killer menu. I’ve put my thinking cap on to refine last year’s menu keeping the traditional favorites and adding in a few new fabulous offerings!
For the dessert table:
The star of the show - Gold Dusted Chocolate Oscars in milk and dark chocolate:
The second star of the show: The chocolate strawberry tower:
Some crowd tested favorites: Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Truffles with Sea Salt:
Then a bit of Pinterest inspiration with Chocolate Dipped Raspberries:
Individual Tiramisu Shooters:
This year’s additions include:
Chocolate-Champagne Truffles, courtesy of Martha Stewart’s recipe (I’ll roll mine in gold sanding sugar):
And Individual Chocolate Avocado Mousse from Giada De Laurentiis:
Now on to the savories. At the main table, I’ll have one of my Oscar Party standards: Spanakopita
Hummus Three Ways: White, Roasted Pine Nut and Black Bean served with crudities and pita chip ribbons:
Greek Cucumber Cups, thank you Rachael Ray: Ginger Soy Chicken Mini Kabobs:
Rosemary Balsamic Mini Kabobs:
Antipasta Skewers Two Ways: Italian and Greek Style:
Then over to the coffee table in the prime time TV viewing location. Guess what? I’ll put more food there too! Starting with Paula Deen’s Sugar and Nut Glazed Brie served with fresh sliced pears:
Classic, can’t live without Dill Dip with Crudités
and finally to round out the table, Cheese, Crackers and Grapes.
But Oscar Party isn’t completed without it’s signature cocktail…..the Twisted Cosmo!
So friends, I hope you’re seriously hungry ’cause I’m already cooking up a storm! I’ve pinned all these to my Oscar Party board on Pinterest along with a few other party ideas in case you’re planning your own shindig.
