Serving snacks at a wedding reception is becoming more popular -- not to mention the guests love it! Keep everyone dancing until dawn with these recipes for your reception.

When this icy, foamy frappe is poured into glasses, it separates into layers that intensify in flavor from top to bottom. A cloud of cotton candy gives a jolt of sweetness when stirred into the drink. You or your caterer can buy cotton candy premade or use a machine to make it. These are ideal after dinner at warm-weather weddings; they'd also be stars at the cocktail hour, even without alcohol.
This Asian brittle combines sweet and hot flavors in each bite. Each sticky cluster includes almonds, cashews, sesame sticks, and wasabi peas and is spiced with ginger, crushed red pepper, and soy sauce. The intense flavors are an especially good match for a glass of cold beer.
