Summer’s end is creeping closer, although you wouldn’t know it by the temperatures. But you can take advantage of the heat wave and extend your pool season – at least long enough to host one last summer pool party. All you need is a clean pool, some good friends, and these easy poolside snacks.
These are a hit with kids and adults alike. This recipe uses blueberries, but any fruit could be paired with your favorite flavor of yogurt for a cool treat. Sit a bowl on ice next to your glimmering pool and your guests will have a way to beat the heat in and out of the water.
You can’t have an end of summer pool party without a dip, and this delicious recipe goes beyond your casual chip dip. Why? Because it has bacon. And bacon makes everything better. The best part is that it requires only a few ingredients and very little of your time, which means more precious moments to enjoy relaxing by your pool.
Not all nachos are created equal. These apple nachos add a sweet twist to a popular concept. The toppings are up to you, with limitless possibilities. Add a little caramel here, a bit of chocolate drizzle there. Sprinkle some marshmallows if you feel like it or add melted peanut butter. Apple nachos even sound healthy, even if they aren’t.
Every pool party needs some salsa, but why would you make salsa for this last amazing party, using only traditional ingredients? Take a walk on the wild side with this incredible recipe. Tomatillos are a main ingredient in salsa verde, and if you’re unfamiliar with this variety of salsa, then you’re missing out on a treat. Toss in avocados and other spices and you’ve got a winning pool snack.
For those at your party who are age 21 and over, they’ll love this refreshing snack, and you’ll love how easy it is. Soak grapes in your favorite wine and freeze. It’s really that simple and even more enjoyable. If you’re feeling exceptionally fancy, these frozen wine grapes can also be added to any sangria recipe for a chilly poolside cocktail.
The end of summer may be near but don’t be sad! Take advantage of the heat wave to host one last pool party. Great memories are guaranteed with these poolside snacks, and you’ll never regret hosting one last event before you have to prep for the winter. You can enjoy the leftover frozen wine grapes (if there are any) while we handle the pool closing.
