 This is a list of my best last minute party food ideas.  It's almost all desserts, but with few ingredients and short preparation times you'll find these recipes can be thrown together last-minute and no one will be the wiser! 

 Brownie Crackles---Based on a brownie baking mix, these simple cookies are pretty and tasty too! 

Chocolate Dipped Oreos---Oreos, chocolate chips, and sprinkles and a few minutes is all you need for this super easy treat. 

Easy Chocolate Pretzel Bites--Pretzel snaps, Hershey kisses, and M&M's and you've got a pretty snack.  Throw them in the freezer for quick set-up. 

Cookies and Cream Mini Cheesecakes---Oreos for the crust and only 6 basic ingredients for the filling, and you've got a delicious and pretty little dessert.  Throw these in the freezer for quick set-up. 

30-Minute Fudge Pie---Thirty minutes start-to-finish, with a pie crust, plus five pantry basic ingredients and you've got an elegant looking pie that no one will ever guess you whipped up in no time. 

Marshmallow Christmas Wreaths--Cute and fun, this simple treat is a great one to give to the kids to make. 

Chocolate Pomegranate Clusters--Chocolate chips, pomegranate seeds, and a little oil is all you need for this fun little treat that will be certain to surprise your guests with the  pomegranate  juice exploding in their mouth with each bite. 

Coconut M&M Cookies--A fun and different twist on cookies, this one is sure to be a pretty addition to a treat plate. 

Oreo Truffles--Oreos, cream cheese, and chocolate chips  are the only three ingredients you'll need for this super tasty and elegant looking treat!

Triple Chocolate Cake--One of my favorite desserts of all time, this moist cake with only five ingredients (including a cake mix) is a winner at any party.  People ask me for this recipe all the time. 

Avocado Smash---Quick and great for chips or for vegetables. 

Basil-Garlic Cheese Bread---Tasty and easy, this would be great as a side at a party.
