For years, our entire family gathered at the cabin for New Year’s Eve.  The folks always thought it was a great way to get us all together to celebrate and not have to worry about any of us being on the roads.  We always end up with a wide variety of finger foods so I like to find a new and yummy appetizer.  The last few years they have become snowbirds and head south for the winter so we don’t get together at the cabin now.  Since having kids, heading out on the roads on some nights isn’t worth it to me so we try to invite some friends over or have a low key night at home with just us.  I’m not sure what we are doing yet, whether friends are coming over or we are just hanging out with just us but I am planning the fun already.New Year's Eve kabobs #naturallyCheesy AD

I love to entertain but I also like to make it easy on myself too.  This year I thought some New Years kabobs were in order and I was pretty sure I had what I needed to make them already in the fridge.  They were so simple to make and the kids kept begging to eat them right away.  You can find out how to make them at the bottom of the page.  I wanted cute AND simple so I made some cute New Years Even toothpick tags to use as the kabob sticks.  You can print these out at the bottom of the page as well.  There are three different sayings on the tags – Happy New Year!  – Goodbye 2015 – Hello 2016.  To top them off, I had some white glitter pom pom balls leftover from Christmas that I hot glued on the top of each toothpick.  {If you are ever wondering how to get the toothpick flags to stick – I dip the top of the toothpick in glue and spread a little at the end of the flags.  I dip it in the glue again and stick it in the center and fold the flag in half.  I use to use double sided tape but this was way quicker.

Toothpick flagsI am getting so excited for our New Year’s Eve celebration this year.  Maggie seems to be the only one who makes it up until midnight with me but we always get lots of snuggles and have lots of fun.  Now, onto the recipe.

How to make New Years Eve kabobs

New Year's Eve kabobs #naturallycheesyGather your ingredients.  Here’s what we used:

  • Kraft Natural Chunk (block) Cheese
  • Summer Sausage
  • Spinach Leaves
  • Round Crackers
  • Cherry Tomatoes

 I have a dedicated cheese drawer in my fridge so you can always find something, usually large chunks of cheese.  I love the sharp cheddar Kraft Natural Chunk (block) Cheese but I think the Pepperjack Kraft Natural Chunk cheese is my favorite.  Unfortunately, the store was out of it AGAIN.

I start with a cracker and add some spinach leaves on top.  Feel free to go crazy here.  I like to add at least three leaves but I love spinach leaves.

Then add on your summer sausage.

After slicing my Kraft Natural Chunk (block) Cheese, I cut each slice in half and then half again because I like the stacked look.  Plus, the cheese is the best part, right?!

I finished off by adding a cherry tomato to the toothpick, pushing it all the way up toward the flag and then stabbing the toothpick through the stack of cracker, spinach, summer sausage and Kraft Natural Chunk (block) Cheese.  Warning:  Don’t make these when anybody else is around, they disappear quickly.
