6 Tantalizing Treats to Serve at Your Open House
Put homebuyers in a buying mood at your open house with these sweet and savory snacks. Do your best to finish your baking just before things get started so that the air is filled with aromatic goodness. Steer clear of snacks that are sloppy to eat, since you want to avoid stains, and always provide serving utensils, small plates, and napkins. And don’t burn the snacks—it’ll kill the vibe!

Chocolaty Brownies

Everyone loves brownies, even if they’re straight from the box. Mix your batter and pour it into a pan, saving half of the batter. Lay mini chocolate bars or chocolate caramel squares evenly inside the pan, and top the bars with the remainder of the batter. Slice the baked brownies into bite-sized squares. Your guests will be in for a chocolaty treat.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

You really can’t go wrong with chocolate chip cookies. A quality store-bought roll will work just fine—unless, of course, you’ve got your grandma’s recipe.

Pigs in a Blanket

A tried-and-true savory favorite for many. Serve the piggies with condiments, but remember to provide serving spoons to prevent the dreaded double-dip.

Finger Sandwiches

A store-bought platter from your local grocer can be perfect. Be sure to serve an assortment of meats to appeal to as many buyers as possible.

Fresh Popcorn

Popcorn can be a popular snack. Add a special touch by serving it in little cardboard boxes like the ones you find at the movies, if possible. Be prepared to find some kernels throughout the house, though. A small price to pay if you land a buyer.


Here’s another tray that you can easily get at your grocery store. If it doesn’t come with dip remember to grab some. Vegetarians who have the munchies will thank you.


Anything non-alcoholic and clear is ideal, since you don’t want stains if there’s a spill.
