Oscars Party food

this post is sponsored by Blog Meets Brand and M&Ms and I was sent free samples to try but the recipe and opinion is 100% my own

What is your favorite part of watching the Oscars??? I love love LOVE the dresses (are you really that surprised?)! This year I can’t wait to watch Neil Patrick Harris, he’s seriously so much fun to watch. So I’ll be sitting at home (comfy in my PJ’s, wishing I was in a ball gown) watching and enjoy some themed PARTY FOODS!
