15 Recipes For Your Next (And Best) Bachelor Viewing Party
Rose Petal-White Chocolate Bark
Absolutely gorgeous and so easy to make, this white chocolate bark would make the perfect hostess gift or wedding favor. You can find white chocolate melting wafers in many grocery stores or craft stores, such as Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Just be sure to microwave at 50% in short increments as white chocolate is easy to burn.
Fresh strawberries briefly and gently poach in vanilla- and thyme-scented rosé wine for a versatile spring condiment: Serve it for dessert over ice cream, angel food cake, or pound cake; or use it at breakfast to top your yogurt or oatmeal. You can also try this technique with raspberries or blackberries if they’re more plentiful at the farmers market. If your rosé is on the sweet side, start with 1 tablespoon of honey, and add more as needed.
Raspberry, Lemon, and Spice Pie Hearts
These handheld mini pie hearts have the freshness of lemon with spices for warmth. They're a great way to impress someone special and making them can also be a fun shared activity. You'll need a 3-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter; or if you don't have one, make a 3-in. heart out of cardboard and cut around it.
Rosé and Raspberry Sorbet Floats
Say hello to your new favorite warm weather treat. With only 3-ingredients, these rosé floats are incredibly simple to prep, but make for such an impressive and deliciously refreshing dessert—perfect for a any summer party. The sweet-tart sorbet pairs really nicely with the dry, crispness of the sparkling rosé. While we opted to garnish with fresh raspberries, you could top these boozy delights with any fresh berries you like, as well as fresh herbs, such as torn mint.
Chocolate-Dipped Hazelnut Shortbread Hearts
Instead of the traditional triangle or square shapes, this easy shortbread dough is rolled and cut into heart shapes and then dipped in chocolate and nuts.
Brie-and-Fig Puffed Pastry Bites
You don’t need a culinary degree and ample free time to create impressive appetizers for your next party. In fact, all you need is three simple ingredients and about ten minutes of hands-on work to whip up these easy and delectably cheesy bites. They’re yet another reason that puff pastry is the true MVP when it comes to entertaining.
Mini Cheese Balls
Almond milk cream cheese is delicately nutty, with a buttery-rich texture and zero grams of sat fat. Find it at Whole Foods stores nationwide. You can substitute 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, which adds 1.6g sat fat to each serving.
Lemon-Caper Parmesan Potato Salad Bites
Turn "jacket potatoes" into irresistible potato salad bites. Capers offer a twist on traditional relish; they're actually pickled flower buds and add bright, briny flavor to this appetizer.
Raspberry Rosé Bellini
This simple and elegant spring cocktail is the perfect accompaniment to a special brunch spread, such as our Ultimate Eggs Benedict. Though the recipe was developed with Mother’s Day in mind, the rosé simple syrup used to create this cocktail offers a multitude of delicious possibilities any day of the week. The boozy syrup is incredibly simple to make and can be used to enhance the simplest of cocktails, as well as add an extra special touch when poured over desserts.
Cranberry Sangría Punch
This wintry, ruby-red spin on sangría is a staff favorite but comes with a warning: It goes down easy. Make it a day ahead, and add the Champagne right before serving.
Strawberry Hibiscus Cooler
With or without the vodka, this sweet-tart drink deserves a spot at brunch.
Pear and Pomegranate Bellini
For an elegant and fruity cocktail ready in just 5 minutes, try this easy bellini made with brandy, pomegranate juice and prosecco.
Raspberry "Sangre" Margaritas
Rosy Apple Sparkler

"If my cousin is in charge, then our warm wine punch goes especially boozy. Either way, it's got to have the oranges with the little cloves."
Garnish this punch with a cinnamon stick or orange slices.
