It’s the only time of year where everyone can go crazy over apps, snacks, and goodies. It’s pretty much my favorite thing ever, minus the 10 extra pounds I am left with on January 2nd. But no regrets, all those appetizers are definitely worth is.

When it comes to selecting goat cheese, I always choose Joan of Arcยฎ goat cheeses. They are pleasantly fresh with a slightly tangy flavor that adds the perfect pop of flavor to any dish.

I added some fresh thyme which adds a cozy and hearty flavor to the bites. You can use any type of crackers or even crostini as the base. To add a pop of color, texture, and flavor, I sprinkled a few pomegranate arils over each serving and then drizzled some honey.
So simple, so delicious, and oh so Christmas-y!
