Just because it’s the holiday season doesn’t mean you can’t make healthy choices. Here are some unique appetizers that will delight your guests’ palates and bring smiles to their faces.
Start by hard-boiling some eggs. Next, stack the eggs with kabob sticks. Use peppercorns for the eyes and buttons, cut your carrots in rounds for the hat and finish it off with parsley for the arms.
These fun and healthy treats are perfect if you have kids coming to your dinner. Plus, they are a piece of cake to put together. Here’s what you’ll need – mini marshmallows, strawberries with the tops sliced off, a peeled banana and sliced green grapes. Place one of each ingredient on a toothpick to assemble and Enjoy!
This cucumber tree is so clever! Start by halving a granny smith apple. Lay it cut-side down and spear it with a skewer. Take you sliced cucumber and arrange each slice in a circular pattern. Top it off with a slice of red pepper. Cut the remainder of the pepper into small pieces to act as ornaments.
These adorable appetizers are so cute you won’t want to eat them! Use a can of Colossal pitted black olives. Cut a lengthwise slit in 10 olives. Using half a stick of Neufchatel (or cream cheese) make ¼ teaspoon round balls with a measuring spoon. Stuff the olive so that you see the Neufchatel through the slit. Cut a carrot into ¼ inch rounds and slice a small triangle out of each slice. Next, take the cut triangle “beak” and insert into the olive. Finally, assemble the penguin with a carrot foot, stuffed olive, and olive with carrot beak.
