Whether you're heading to a loved one's house for a gathering or you're getting together with friends for a dinner party, it's always great to have something delicious to bring to the table - literally.

Particularly in a party setting, it's important that your dish is easy to eat even when you're walking around mingling, which is why finger food is key. Bite size food isn't just reserved for appetizers, you can make some great desserts that you can hold onto as you socialize, like the Coconut Macaroons out of Sunrise's community in Bluemont Park, Virginia.
