Easter Rice Cakes

To continue with the week of Healthy Easter Treats, I was thinking about how I could use my Easter biscuit cutters for good and not evil!  In the past, I’ve often made sugary, fatty biscuits, spread them with white chocolate and covered them with sprinkles – not one for the health-conscious!

So, I decided to do some cheese cut-outs, and these just evolved from there!  You can get as creative as you like.  The kids love it, whether they’re involved in the decorating, or just the eating.  They are a bit fiddly, but less time-consuming than making and icing a batch of biscuits – and way healthier!

Ingredients
Rice cakes
Cheese from a block
Sliced ham
Sultanas
Dried apricots
Cucumber
Capsicum
Fresh parsley or coriander
Mayonnaise
(or anything else you have in the fridge/pantry!)
Method
Cut out Easter shapes from the cheese.  Cut ham with a scalloped round cutter, just smaller than the rice cake.

Layer ham and cheese on the rice cakes, then decorate as desired, using small dabs of mayonnaise to attach vegetables.
