Have you ever thrown a Galentine’s Day party before? The day before Valentine’s Day is a special occasion for women to celebrate one another with a fun party. The decor and food is similar but you’ll be sharing it with your besties instead of your boo! We at Peerspace love helping people plan special events so we’ve created this list of Galentine’s Day food ideas to make things easier for you.

Not only do we have food ideas; but Peerspace also has some of the best party venues around! So while you’re here, think about browsing our online marketplace for a cafe or banquet hall that’s just right for your upcoming Galentine’s Day party! 

1. Set out a candy bar

Any Galentine’s Day party should have a selection of sweets to choose from! Bless your besties with some wrapped chocolates, gummy rings, licorice, and other candy pieces. You can set your candy bar at the main table where guests can enjoy it alongside other dishes or place it near the game and socializing spaces! 

2. Deviled eggs

Deviled eggs are a traditional party snack that can find a place at the table of almost any celebration. They also happen to be very easy to make yourself. It only takes a few ingredients; most of which you probably already have in your kitchen. Savory and rich, you can spice up deviled eggs with paprika, pepper, harissa, and other seasonings for an extra kick.

3. Fruit punch cocktail

Relax with girlfriends and a few cocktails this next Galentine’s Day! A fruit punch cocktail can use pineapple juice, grenadine, rum, orange juice…There are so many ways to craft your own Galentine’s drink! Follow the instructions here to choose your ingredients and create the perfect fruit punch cocktail!

And once you have it, don’t forget about the party space itself! Peerspace has one of the largest online marketplaces for special event venues. Our party halls come with amenities like projector screens, outdoor seating areas, and swimming pools! 

4. Chocolate fondue

Are you looking for a Galentine’s Day food idea that is as much an experience as it is a delicious snack? Look no further than a chocolate fondue! Chocolate fondue comes with a selection of snacks like marshmallows, cheese, and berries that can be dipped with ease into the molten chocolate. You’ll want baking chocolate or a similar variety, which melts easily while keeping a good flavor. Add peppermint oil or other flavors as desired. Chocolate fondues need a bit of tending since the pot needs to be kept warm unless you have a fondue pot for parties like this one! 

5. Roasted red pepper guacamole

Guacamole is a timeless party food you can eat with corn chips or crackers. Most people buy it but deprive themselves of the intense flavors that homemade guac has to offer! You can add chopped red onions, tomatillos, and any spices you want for the perfect chip dip. Roasted red peppers take your guac game up a level; don’t believe us? Try this roasted red pepper guacamole recipe for yourself and thank us later! 

With your menu and venue practically sorted, all you need next are these sweet Galentine’s Day ideas to complete your event planning!

6. Homemade Ice Cream

Ice cream is another dish that not enough people try making themselves! It only takes a handful of ingredients to make anything from mint chocolate chips to fresh strawberry-flavored ice cream. Be sure to allow enough time for your homemade ice cream to freeze properly for the celebration and you’ll have a Galentine’s Day food idea that will disappear in an instant! 

7. Chocolate-covered strawberries

You can enjoy the fondue experience without the mess by making some chocolate-covered strawberries for your besties! These are one snack that’s as beautiful to look at as they are delicious. Best of all, you can have a batch ready to go in just 20 minutes of prep time. Drizzle with white chocolate or cover in sprinkles for even more beauty!

8. Stovetop popcorn

Popcorn is one snack food that everyone is sure to enjoy! And you don’t even have to rely on microwaved bags, not when you have this unique stovetop popcorn recipe to try! Stovetop popcorn can be lighter and crisper since you control how much oil goes in. Add your favorite seasonings for spicy chili or sweet and salty popcorn.

9. Galentine’s Day sugar cookies

Galentine’s Day cookies are easy to make and delicious! You can take any recipe for Valentine’s Day cookies and use it. We like this recipe because the cookies look like Valentine’s Day conversation hearts. Use frosting for little “XOXO” and “Love” messages just like the classic candies have.

10. Sweet & spicy Chex mix

Homemade Chex mix is like popcorn; not enough people try making it themselves! With Chex mix, you can add candy, pretzels, peanuts, and other salty, savory flavors for the perfect snack bowl. Follow the recipe for this sweet & spicy Chex mix if you need a Galentine’s Day food idea that will be a sure hit. This medium-spicy snack recipe takes just an hour to bake!

11. Heart-shaped pizza

Making a heart-shaped pizza is as simple as cutting the dough into the shape you like. And having a pan that can accommodate the heart shape, of course! Few dishes say “I love you all!” better than a large Galentine’s Day pizza for your besties to share with you. Take a moment to cut the pepperonis into heart shapes as well.

12. Strawberries and cream-stuffed french toast

Galentine’s Day food ideas can be more than just snacks. You can make a full-course meal for the special occasion! Why not serve strawberries and cream-stuffed french toast at your next Galentine’s Day breakfast or brunch party? This recipe is a little more time-consuming but you’re sure to come home with empty food trays!

13. Sushi platter

Sushi comes in a hundred different varieties, all of them delicious! Whether you want to make a batch of California rolls with avocado and crab or want some classic sushi rolls with rice and fish, follow this recipe if it’s your first time making them. You can add creative flair to a sushi roll by dyeing the rice using food coloring. Sushi is beautiful and tasty and adds fresh veggies and meat to what can be a sweets-heavy selection of party foods.

14. Strawberry rose bellini

A chilled strawberry rose bellini is a nice drink to go with brunch food or lovely to enjoy on its own. You can make your own with ease using this recipe that calls for just four ingredients: sugar, strawberries, lemon juice, and sparkling rose. Vibrant and flavorful, strawberry rose bellinis should be on any list of Galentine’s Day food ideas!

15. Mozzarella sticks

Mozzarella sticks are crunchy, rich, and tasty. But don’t head to the frozen section of your grocery store for some. Not when you can make them yourself with ease! The best thing about homemade fried mozzarella sticks is that you can season the breading any way you like. Once fried, have plenty of marinara sauce dip on standby because these will go fast!

16. Heart-shaped pancakes
