“Are you going to have, uh… the snowflake?”
Meet the party appetizer that will have everyone crowded around the appetizer table. Test Kitchen Director Belle English’s latest concoction is an easier-than-it-looks, six-ingredient masterpiece. There, we said it. And we’ll stand by it. Just look at it in all its glory:
Caramelizing onions is relatively easy, yes, but it takes time. A lot of time. And it can go sideways on you if you’re not standing there stirring the whole time.
Why have hosting feel like work this year? Why not take a little break? Snag our caramelized onion jam here, which is tastier than most of us can pull off at home without burning an onion or two. Let frozen, pre-made puff pastry do the rest of the heavy lifting. Gruyère is in there too, of course, for a super-French vibe, and Belle shows you how to do the cool snowflake “twisting” in the video here. We particularly love this for a New Year’s Eve party, but any party person is going to love it.
Make it, serve it, watch people break out their phones, and prepare to go viral.
