Vote #2 for the tortilla pinwheels. They are pretty easy to make, and they go like wildfire with the teen crowd. I'd throw in a veggie and dip tray and one of cheese chunks, pickles, olives, pepperoni sticks and ham chunks. Leave a few bowls of that munchie mix chip stuff out too and they will rave.

Good idea, Bob. Kids love that stuff. Having recently raised a teenage boy, who constantly had kids hanging around, I have discovered that most teens don't go for anything "weird" (translate unfamiliar).

Pigs in blankets and mini-burgers would go over well, but those are served warm.

Here's a snack my step-daughter fixes for our 13 yr. old granddaughter and her friends:

Taco Roll Ups

1 pkg. (10 count) large flour tortillas
8 oz sour cream
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 tsp lime juice
1-1/2 to 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 tbl. chopped jalapenos (more or less, depending on your taste)

Mix sour cream, cream cheese, lime juice, cheddar cheese, taco seasoning and jalapenos together. Spread thin layer of mixture on tortilla shells, roll up and chill for at least an hour before slicing into bite-sized pieces.

If kids like Aram's you can buy the big ones at most grocery stores..Mine love them I mix cream cheese with chives and minced green olives smear it all over the aram, and then add some garlic powder and cover with spinach leaves, add ham and swiss cheese, roll and then cut..They go like crazy..

If they like apples how about a FRUIT SHISHKABOB
my son fixed them for his Scout meetings

Pieces of four favorite fruits
Your favorite fruit juice
Lollipop sticks or firm straws
Shredded coconut

Put a few pieces of fruit on the sticks. Dip into orange juice or your favorite juice.
Roll in shredded coconut.
