Election season is in full swing, and with so many primaries just around the corner, now is as good a time as ever to host a presidential primary party to watch the results roll in.
These delicious recipes are sure to impress your guests, especially with their punny names displayed. Label them with notecards cut into donkeys and elephants for the respective Democratic and Republican candidates to really stick with the theme.
1. I’m With Her(by) Corn Salad
Hillary herself would surely approve of this flavorful, refreshing salad. Cilantro may not be everyone’s favorite, but its fans are certainly loyal.
2. Bernie Sand(ers)wich
Try out some of these classy open-faced peanut butter and jelly combinations on some Vermont Sweet bread in honor of Bernie’s home state. Make the sandwiches bite-sized for an hors d’ oeuvres style twist.
3. “You’re fired!”-cracker Salmon
This oven-baked salmon dish acts as a great entrée, but be warned: it has a little kick to it, much like Trump’s fiery personality.
4. Ted Cruz-dités
Fresh veggies with homemade hummus make for an easy, healthy, and delicious party snack. Just don’t spice it up at all – Cruz’s platform is way too conservative for anything but plain hummus.
5. John Cake-sich
When the anticipation of the results is getting to you, treat yourself and your guests to some chocolate therapy with these molten chocolate lava cakes. They’re conservative, just like Kasich, but they have a little give to them if you push.
6. Patriotic Punch
Honor all of the candidates with this festive beverage, as well suited to the primary election season as it is to the 4th of July.
