Besides Devilish Potatoes, what would snacks would you pair with Martinis? There will be fruity ones and classic...I'd like to do a sweet of some sort. Make ahead is a must. Thanks guys!

Yay, martini party!
To go with the classic Martinis, really anything salty, fatty, or carby. Smoked almonds, or any seasoned, salty, roasted nuts. Mini quiches (fat free vegan blog recipe), possibly with a crust. Anything battered and deep fried: onion rings, mushrooms, fried green tomatoes, fried pickles, really any veggie you like battered and deep fried. Serve fried foods with a creamy dipping sauce such as ranch, because too much fat is never enough. Raw veggies and dip. Potato chips and dip. Buy a frozen container of Pillsbury crescent roll dough, roll it out and spread with whatever you like: pesto, marinara, bbq sauce, or sriracha, and maybe a bit of minced herbs or dried herbs and/or just a tiny bit of veggies. Roll up and bake. Slice into rounds to serve. Hot spinach artichoke dip and crackers or bread for dipping in. Bruschetta. Stuffed mushrooms. Roasted seasoned chick peas. Sushi.

To go with the fruity martinis, it depends a bit on what flavor they are. But, a batch of mini vanilla cupcakes with vanilla butter cream (Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World) should go with any. If you are doing a fruit flavor that pairs well with chocolate, and lots do, chocolate mini cupcakes, or brownies. You could match or complement the fruit flavor with something like: chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered frozen banana bites (slice banana in rounds, put on sticks, dip in chocolate, freeze), lemon bars, mini apple pies, etc.

Thanks! I think I've actually inspired myself to throw a martini party! You'd be welcome to attend, but I do live in the US.
