  1. Apples Dipped in Honey

    Hide

    Perfect for Rosh Hashanah: kids will be bowled over by this idea for apples and honey. Trim the top and bottom of an apple and hollow it out with a spoon or melon baller. (McIntoshes are easy to scoop.) Brush the inside with lemon juice, and fill with honey. Slice more apples for dipping.

  2. Pretzel Sparklers

    Hide

    Like most sparklers, these are extinguished after a short while -- with several large bites. To make two dozen, place 4 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted; remove from heat. Using a pastry brush, coat the upper third of each pretzel rod in chocolate. Cover with sprinkles; stand pretzels upright in a glass. Place in the refrigerator until firm, about 5 minutes.

  3. Heart-Shaped Appetizers

    Hide

    Dining at home this February 14? For a romantic prelude or finale to the meal, serve dried Calimyrna figs. When cut lengthwise, they look like little hearts. They're a sweet complement to cheeses, crusty breads, and salads. An added benefit: Figs are packed with nutrients, such as iron and potassium, which helps lower blood pressure.

  4. Crisped Prosciutto

    Hide

    Prosciutto is a delightfully crisp accent for soups, pastas, and salads. Arrange the prosciutto slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. For the crunchiest texture, allow the prosciutto to cool before serving.

  5. Cheese Plate Presentation

    Hide

    Transform a basic white platter (this one's from cb2.com) into a cheese board for your next party.

    For the best balance and presentation, choose cheeses with a range of appearances, flavors, and textures. We added pistachios, fruit, and fig cake.
