I need some recipes/ideas for finger foods?
Our church is having a get together. We're supposed to bring some type of appetizer or finger food. I'm tired of the same ol' boring stuff. I'm looking for something the kids would like as well as the adults. Does anyone have any ideas for something different.

Tiny Teddy Car
* Mini Mars Bars, Snickers or Milky Ways
* Smarties or M&M's
* Tiny Teddies - plain ones look best
* Chocolate Icing - to use as "glue"
* Push the Tiny Teddies into the middle of the chocolate. (To make the teddy driver)
* Using the Icing as glue, stick on 4 Smarties or M&M's (to make wheels)
I made these for a party and they were gone before I put the plate down.

Mini quiches. Samosas. Cobb loaf.
You need a cobb loaf
Cheddar or tasty cheese
A can of corn kernals
Cut the cobb loaf so that it will make a bowl. Scoop out the contents and tear them up, along with the lid, in big pieces. Mix together the cheeses, spring onions, and corn. Put the mixture into the cobb bowl, and place onto a baking tray. Place the torn bread pieces around the bowl. Cook in a moderate oven for around 30 minutes, or until the mixture is all melted. Use the torn bread, and eventually the bowl as a scoop for the mixture. Yummy.
You can get other recipes for Cobb Loaf. They have spinach in it.Source(s): I made it up, but it tastes really good. We've eaten it lots of times.

The easiest thing I have done is fruit kabobs. All you have to do is buy about four or five of you favorite fruits slice them up and slide them on the stick. You can even drizzle them with a fruit dip (marshmellow cream and whip cream - put it in a ziploc cut the end and squeeze!). It looks great and is totally easy, it is also very healthy and a crowd pleaser for anyone watching their weight! And the greatest thing is it isn't messy and only takes a few minutes to prepare! I don't recommend bananas because they will turn brown and if you drizzle them with the fruit drip let them dry really well first so that it will stick. As soon as you drizzle them put them in the fridge so the spread will stick! Have fun at your party!
