How healthy are these appetizer recipes?

Honestly these are not healthy at all. These fun appetizer recipes have lots of cheese, carbs and fat. But I love making them for a party, potluck, or tailgate because I can have just a little taste and count on the guests to finish it off!

Also, it’s nice to treat yourself once in awhile. Everything we eat doesn’t have to be a healthy option. Sometimes it’s nice to just go for it and enjoy all the full fat flavor and indulgent treats.

Appetizers are a great way to do that because they’re small portions and easy to just pop them in bit sized pieces!
