It's cocktail party season, so it's time to stock up on the most delicious one- and two-bite morsels you can find. From classic gougères to delicious cheddar olives, we've got you covered. We even endorse a secret cheat, if time is lacking.

Tiny bites, also know as canapés, tell your guests that you care enough to go beyond chips and dips or those scary party platters from your local sub shop. These little morsels of deliciousness will delight and impress, but aren't they a lot of work? In some cases, yes, but we also have you covered with a decent cheat (see final entry, below) should you find yourself out of time or motivation.

No time? Cheating is allowed!
