Easy appetizers are awesome. Easy and elegant Christmas Appetizers are even better! These creamy goat cheese stuffed sweet Medjool dates wrapped in rich, salty prosciutto are no doubt elegant and easy… and rich and satisfying and delicious and usually the hit of any party. Serve them alongside this fun and bubbly smartwater sparkling and NOW you’ve got yourself a Christmas Appetizer!
How To Make This Elegant Christmas Appetizer
Medjool dates are large, semi-soft dates that still contain the pit. Slice open the side of the date and remove pit with a sharp knife (this is really easy so don’t be intimidated by it). Fill the center of the date with room temperature goat cheese then wrap the entire date in a strip of prosciutto. Arrange on a platter and pair with smartwater sparkling to add a touch of chic to your get-together.
Why smartwater sparkling, you ask? Well, I’m glad you did! There are lots of reasons to add it to your drink offerings at any party. Many people want to feel like they’re part of the party but want to stick to drinking water. So hand them a bubbly glass of smartwater sparkling and BINGO they’re in! And smartwater sparkling is WAY better than just a plain old glass of water! Then there’s the I-am-with-child guest (I’m definitely NOT in this category! But my niece is!) Yep, smartwater sparkling is the perfect solution for those.
And now you have it – one of the easiest and most elegant Christmas Appetizers that you can pull together in about five minutes. Get all the ingredients along with your smartwater sparkling (in the water aisle) at your local Safeway store and you’re good to go. This is one people will talk about for years to come. It really is that good. Happy and safe holidays to everyone!
