Everyone here has such great ideas and I really need some suggestions. I am having a holiday open house with a few other vendors the first weekend in November and I need some ideas of what to prepare. This is the second year we've done it and I know a lot of people will be coming back, so I want something great. Everyone loved the Beer Bread Mix and Dill Dip last year, but I want to do something different this year. The event will be Friday night and Saturday morning/afternoon, so I need something that is relatively simple and can be left out for a fairly long period without spoiling.

Also, last year, I made the cakes from the mini fluted pan and displayed them and it was a huge hit, so I was thinking about making mini-Barbi cakes in the prep bowls this year. Is that too much? I would like to display a few showstoppers, but again, I can't decide which ones.

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. TIA :D
 
The velvety chocolate truffles are great to make for a booth, they go over very well and are only 4 ingredients besides what you decide to coat them in. You could suggest to make them for christmas gifts also. They are in the Season's Best cookbook and I also made the fruit dip in the desserts cookbook it is a lowfat and diabetic friendly recipe, and very very good I must say, it also went over very well. Maybe make up one of the batter bowls with the gift mix and tag to show off also. Hope this Helps. :D
 
Hi there! I'm so glad to hear that your holiday open house was a success last year and that you're planning to do it again this year. It's always a great opportunity to showcase our amazing products and share them with others.As for your menu, I have a few suggestions that I think would be a hit at your event. For a simple yet delicious appetizer, I recommend our Spinach & Artichoke Dip Mix served with our Garlic & Herb Rub sprinkled on top. It's a crowd-pleaser and can be left out for a few hours without spoiling. Another idea is to make a festive cheese platter using our Cheese Ball Mix and displaying it on our beautiful bamboo serving tray.For your showstoppers, I think the mini-Barbi cakes in the prep bowls is a fantastic idea! It's a fun and creative way to showcase our products and I'm sure your guests will be impressed. You can also try making our Chocolate Lava Cakes using our Mini Fluted Pan for a decadent and visually stunning dessert.Lastly, don't forget to have some hot beverages available for your guests. Our Mulled Apple Cider Mix is perfect for the holiday season and can be easily prepared in a slow cooker, keeping it warm and delicious throughout your event.I hope these ideas inspire you and I wish you all the best for your holiday open house. Have a great time unleashing your creativity and showcasing our amazing products! Happy holidays!
