Whether you’re hosting, or simply attending, an MTV VMA watch party this year, you know the menu is secondary only to the music! No awards show feels complete without plenty of snacks to chow down on while you watch.
This is especially true when we’re talking about the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, August 27th.
You can go down the traditional snack route, but consider these options to really stand out from the crowd—recipes that correlate to, and are inspired by, the 2017 Video Of The Year nominees.
“HUMBLE” by Kendrick Lamar
This Baked White Cheddar Mac and Cheese is comfort food that only requires 7 humble ingredients, but looks like something out of a magazine – no photoshop required.
“24K Magic” by Bruno Mars
Golden Dijon Spicy Chicken Skewers are basted with a tangy-sweet honey mustard BBQ sauce and spiked with sweet chili sauce. Perfect for your watch party, hashtag blessed, you ain’t ready for it.
“Scars To Your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara
You know covergirls eat nothing…except Mimosa Cupcakes. Made with a mild orange cupcake with champagne syrup drizzled inside, topped with champagne frosting, this cupcake embodies beauty.
“Wild Thoughts” by DJ Khaled f. Rihanna and Bryson Tiller
This creamy, buttery Cinnamon Roll Dip may have possibly inspired the entire song because when you’re with it, all you get is wild thoughts (wild, wild, wild.)
“Reminder” by The Weeknd
Don’t buy a pre-made mix. These Margaritas for a Crowd use fresh orange, tangerine and lime juice to create the ultimate party drink. You know what they say, hit the gas so hard and make it rotate – on your blender, that is.
