Easy 5 Ingredient Snack Recipes

Snacks, also known as appetizers, if you want to be fancy about it, are basically my soul foods. There is nothing better to me than a variety of bite sized foods. That way I can have a little of a lot of different flavors. That being said, I don’t always want to spend a lot of time putting a snack together.
