With the holidays coming up, you will more than likely be on the hunt for easy appetizers. That is why I wanted to share these Easy Cranberry Ricotta Bites that your guests can even create themselves. They are bite-sized, made with light ingredients, and perfect for entertaining on a whim. Best of all, these cranberry appetizers pair beautifully with wine!
My husband Jared is a true wine enthusiast and enjoys trying new varities as much as I love cooking. He is always game to try new brands so when we were introduced to The Dreaming Tree Wines collection he was excited for many reasons. This brand of wine was created by Dave Matthews who Jared enjoys as an artist.
With so many wines on the market, it can be a challenge to choose an affordable, sustainable, and tasty variety. The Dreaming Tree Wines collection makes high quality, delicious wines at an affordable price point, to celebrate any occasion.
What’s even more awesome is that the brand has a social conscious demonstrated by its commitment to sustainable winemaking practices and is celebrating donating over $1M to environmental programs that protect tree and forestry programs across the country.
I guess you could say we are having a month-long celebration to enjoy our new home with guests. My kitchen is finally large enough to entertain in and has plenty of space for hosting get togethers.
I was inspired to create these Easy Cranberry Ricotta Bites Appetizers because the fall is the start to cranberry season. I just love all things cranberry so it was a must to create a sweet & savory bite.
The best part of entertaining in my new kitchen is that the back slider connects right to the deck that overlooks a beauiful farm, and forest of trees.
I just love the outdoors and nature so living in this green, lush environment really has me in-tune with nature.
You can find The Dreaming Tree Wines at your local grocery, drug or supercenter stores. A little trick – just go to their website and locate their wines here.

Easy Cranberry Ricotta Bites Appetizer
- 1 package whole grain crackers
- 1 package dried cranberries
- 1 container ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- Assort honey, nuts, cranberries, crackers, and ricotta on a serving tray with spreading knives, and honey stick. Allow guests to top their own crackers, or prepare them ahead of time. I did not add exact measurements since they vary so much depending on your guests list.
Oh wow!!! Of course!!
Another great way is to use a dab of fig jam with a tiny bit of honey with riocatta as an appetzer too!
