Muffin Tray Uses for Party Dips and Snacks

Muffin Tray Dips Snacks Tips

It’s Party Time. Once you have set up your mind to organize a party for friends or family, it is time to become serious as “standard” is not in your vocabulary. You like to present the guests’ something unique, something they have never seen before. The not so boring party obviously must include the snack presentation.

You shouldn’t go overboard as somebody has to do the cleaning and wash the dishes afterward. The guests happily enjoy being part of the gathering, but at some point in time, they will say “see you next time”. Unquestionably, guess who is the one that cleans the dishes? Yes, you are the chosen one.

Now two dilemmas show up: First, a out of the ordinary snack presentation and secondly having the least amount of effort to clean afterwards. Here we go, the ultimate Muffin Tray Idea perfect for Dips & Snacks:


Upfront, make some research of what taste your guests have. There might be some vegetarians among them. Consequently, at least some snacks should be meat-free as there would be no alternative for the vegetarians to eat anything. Do not let them go back home empty-handed with a hole in their stomach. This will reflect quite badly on your reputation as a party host.

Tip: You can also customize the party snacks to the theme: Offer Asian food at a Asian Themed Party

Finger food is quite popular and very practical to serve. For all kinds of parties, they are suitable whether it is a new year’s party, birthday party, or just a get-together gathering of friends.

As the muffin tray’s cup sizes are not that big, only smaller variations of finger food are suitable to be served into them. Here are some great ideas that you can copy:

  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Sliced Red Bell Peppers
  • Crackers
  • Mixed Dried Fruits
  • Fresh Baby Carrots
  • Pickles
  • Mixed Nuts
  • M & M’s
  • Cucumber Sticks
  • Asian Snack (Fried Peas)
  • Party Snack Mix
  • Fresh Olives
  • Small tomato cubes
  • Small cubes of cheese


A wide variety of different dips are favorable and appreciated by the guests. Do not forget that guests have different tastes. Some like it sweeter, some more sour, some spicy, or just salty. Offer a wide range to make everybody happy. Isn’t this the purpose of having a party, to be happy and have fun!

What is eating finger foods like chips, craps, or tortilla without a delicious tasting salsa dip? You are right, something is missing. I highly recommend preparing cold dips as they are very easy to store inside the fridge. Another advantage is that you can prepare the homemade dips a day or two in advance. No need to get stressed out on the actual day of the party.

The Muffin Tray is the perfect 9-in 1 solution to have all the dips right in one place. Normally you would need one separate bowl for each dip, but the Muffin Tray can hold up to 9 cups. Hence, up to nine different dips conveniently can be placed inside a tray. Here are some ideas of Salsa and party dips to offer your guests:
