Stir Up Some Party Fun

MISSION, KS--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2012) - (Family Features) No matter what the reason for the party, you can stir up some fun with easy-to-make appetizers that are sure to please the whole crowd.

These four recipes are a breeze to make and all share one simple secret ingredient -- Musselman's Apple Butter. Here are some delicious ideas for turning these dips and sauces into great party appetizers.

Quick and Easy BBQ Sauce: Brush on chicken wings or shrimp during the last few minutes of grilling. It is simple to make BBQ pulled pork, as well as the sauce for a crockpot of meatballs or bacon-wrapped smoked sausages.

Apple Butter Mustard Dip: Delicious with just hard or soft pretzels. Set out a plate of cheese cubes or mini egg rolls for dipping, and you have easy snacking.

Kickin' Horseradish Sandwich Spread: This tastes great with roast beef, chicken, or pork -- try mini sandwich sliders or pinwheel wraps. Another great idea is to use the spread as a dip for chicken tenders, sweet potato fries or even veggie chips.

Caramel Apple Dip: Set a dish of this warm dip on a pretty tray and surround it with freshly sliced apples or pears, and simple gingersnap cookies. For a family fun dessert, dip marshmallows and then roll them in chopped nuts.
