Cut the tomatoes and the mozzarella in thin slices. Also cut the baguette in like 1,5cm thin pieces and put a slice of tomato and a slice of mozzarella on top. Add some olive oil and basil on top and season it with salt and pepper. Put everything in your oven for about 5-10min on 180degrees. It's when the mozzarella is melted.

Just like with the tomato-mozzarella, cut the bread in slices from about 1,5cm thickness. Cut the brie in small pieces and add this on the bread. Add some olive oil and some pepper and put it in the oven for about 5min on 180degrees. It's ready when the cheese is melted.

The recipe for the pasta-pesto you can find here, we made the same but without the broccoli and the chicken.
Chocolate chip truffles

For the chocolate chip truffles you can also go to one of my previous posts to try them out! The recipe for the chocolate mousse I'm not gonna give out just yet. I'm kinda known for this one being a little bit special and very good, but not sure if I wanne spread my secret. 
The cookies I baked were also super easy because I bought the pre-made dough at IKEA. So I just had to make the little stars and put it in my oven!

Enjoy the cooking and have a great party!
