Finger Foods In The Crock?

My fiance & I are going to be hosting Wintereenmas at the end of January, which is basically a gamer holiday. We're going to have a bunch of friends over to play video games, so I need to think of things that people can eat that won't dirty their hands.
Is there anything I can make in the crockpot that would work in this situation?

Dips! Pizza dip, nacho cheese, etc.

How about chili served in bowls or mugs with a spoon?

You could always provide skewers or toothpicks for serving whatever you want to make. </p>

All I can think of are those lil smokies. :)

Meatballs are always a hit.

bbq meatballs or those water chestnuts wrapped in bacon

Was also thinking something you could skewer with a toothpick such as meatballs or some such.

Could also do a burrito/wrap type of thing (cook filling in the crock) but that would require more hand capacity.

An easy dip is a can of chili + a package of cream cheese. Believe it or not, it's unbelievably delicious. Serve w/ a spoon and those scoop chips or the bite-size ones. :D

Chili cheese dip is a huge hit around here.

1 can chili with beans
1 block Velveeta
1 small jar salsa of choice
1 brick cream cheese

Melt together on low until heated through. Serve with the scoop chips.

Meatballs (bbq, swedish, etc,) or cocktail wieners can be eaten with toothpicks.

Crockpot 365 link

Aside from this comm, I use her site before google even.

Are you big on sweets? I've done brownies in the crockpot (in mugs), and then added cream/ice cream on top. :) Eat with a spoon!

I make a pork roast, any recipe will do, shred it up and serve in a shallow mug with a fork.

Pork on a fork, who needs veggies, anyway?

I guess all these folks suggesting greasy chips just don't understand the logistics involved.

Also, any soups are great if you're in a cold weather sort of January place.

Crockpots depend on moisture, so anything you make will be saucy/wet, and not per se reach-in-and-grab finger food. There are lots and lots of options for skewer/toothpick/fork foods, though. Meatballs (tomato, Swedish, or chili-sauce-and-grape-jelly). Sausages (Li'l Smokies, breakfast links, or sliced kielbasa or chorizo) in all kinds of sauces (I like kielbasa with a mixture of apricot jam and Dijon mustard). If you're willing to go bowls or mugs, all kinds of soups, stews and chilis.

You can do cocktail franks or meatballs and give everyone long bamboo skewers.

That sounds like fun-a gamer holiday!

I don't have any suggestions, alas, still being new to the crock pot world...but I hope you get some good ones, and have a good time!

For gaming days Chili was probably the most popular. We also did a baked potato bar cooking the potatoes in foil in the crockpot. A crockpot with spiced cider in it makes the house smell good and goes well with most desserts. You have to give the hands a rest at some point so as long as its quick and easy to dish out you should be good to go. Have a great gaming day!

A baked potato bar? Make the potatoes in the crock, then have all sorts of different toppings people can add.
