How do you make festive cocktail sticks?

The festive cocktail sticks are an easy way to decorate your party and surprise the guests with tasty snacks. To make them, gather different ingredients such as cherry tomatoes, cucumber, cheese and sausages. Cut these into small pieces and thread them onto cocktail sticks. Add some olives or pickles as a finishing touch. Present the skewers on a festive plate and enjoy this tasty and colorful treat! With this step-by-step guide, your party is sure to be a success!


Gather supplies

Collect the cocktail sticks and have them ready. Cut different types of cheese, such as young cheese, brie and goat cheese, into cubes. Wash the grapes and cherry tomatoes and set them aside. Make sure you also have other desired ingredients such as olives, pickles or pieces of sausage on hand. This way you have collected all the supplies you need to make delicious cheese boards.


Preparing the ingredients

  • Cut the cheese into cubes of about 2 centimeters.
  • Wash the grapes and cherry tomatoes thoroughly under cold running water and dry them with a clean kitchen towel.
  • Make sure all ingredients are within reach and ready to use before you start preparing the dish.

Choose the order

First choose which ingredients you want to use on the cocktail sticks. Then start placing the largest and sturdiest ingredients, such as chunks of cheese or meat. Then add colorful and decorative ingredients, such as olives or cherry tomatoes. End with a final ingredient that visually completes the cocktail stick, such as a piece of lemon or pickle.


Threading the ingredients

Thread the cheese cubes, grapes, and cherry tomatoes onto the cocktail sticks alternately until they are full. Make sure you keep a varied order and make sure that the ingredients are firmly on the skewers. Repeat until all your cocktail sticks are filled for a tasty and colorful treat. You can now enjoy your delicious and festive snacks!


Adding extra decoration

Add additional decorative elements, such as basil leaves or mini pickles, for a festive touch. Place the basil leaves or mini pickles on top of your dish in an attractive pattern. Make sure the extra decoration complements the flavors and makes the dish more visually appealing. Experiment with different combinations of decorative elements to enhance the presentation of your dish.



Arrange the cocktail sticks on a nice plate or tray. This ensures an attractive presentation. Place them in a pattern that is visually appealing to your guests. Pay attention to the balance and make sure the plate doesn't look too full or too empty.



Chill the cocktail sticks before serving if necessary. Place them in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to keep the ingredients fresh. This way the taste of the snacks remains optimal. Remember not to use the cocktail sticks until they are well chilled!


Enjoy your festive cocktail sticks!

Serve the cocktail sticks at your party by arranging them beautifully on a serving plate. Make sure each skewer has a tasty combination of ingredients, such as a cherry tomato, a piece of mozzarella and a basil leaf. Present the cocktail sticks with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as pesto or garlic mayonnaise, for an extra tasty experience for you and your guests. Enjoy the delicious combination of flavors and the festive atmosphere that the cocktail sticks add to your special occasion!


Optional: Variations

Try different ingredients and combinations to make your own unique festive cocktail sticks. Mix both savory and sweet elements such as cheese, olives, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, fruit and pieces of meat.
