New Year's is the ultimate time for budding romance and good luck to collide after a night of hors d'oeuvres and champagne. Whether you have a kiss locked down or will be searching the room for anyone looking half as desperate as you are this New Year's Eve, here are some killer appetizers to blow away your guests and hopefully help you bring in 2017 with some romance.

1. Blackberry Brie Bites

Make these because oven-melted brie is irresistible, and you will be too this New Year's Eve. 

2. Artichoke Bruschetta 

These will lock in a kiss because crostini are classy and topping them with artichoke is adventurous. With one bite, your crush will see these same traits in you and be more willing than ever to lean in at midnight. 

3. Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pepper Poppers

cheese, pepper, avocado, bacon, jalapeno
Alexa Gambero

A little bit of spice will have your guests inspired to do something a little out of their comfort zone...maybe like snuggling up close to you around midnight?

4. 2-Ingredient Smoked Salmon Dip

This salmon dip is deliciously smooth and tasty. Hopefully your midnight kiss will have lips with similar qualities.   

5. Mini Pizza Lollipops

These are so cute and crafty that they are bound to have someone begging at your feet around 11:59.

6. Fresh Apple Salsa

tomato, onion, corn, parsley, pepper, vegetable

The person you've been eyeing all night will be wowed by this salsa's originality, and hopefully by you too. 

7. Extreme Cheese and Garlic Dip with Dippers

Warm bae's heart twice tonight– once with this dip and once later with that midnight kiss. 

8. Refried Bean Bell Pepper Poppers

These poppers will wow your guests more than when the ball drops in Time Square at midnight, so use them to reel in a cutie. 

Wishing everyone a delicious, resolution-filled, and romantic New Year's Eve. Hopefully these recipes will get the one you dream of kissing at midnight to fall head over heels for you, and you'll get lucky as the ball drops.
