Prep Time: 40 min.

Celebrate Easter in the cutest way with these easy-to-make, just-hatched mozzarella and mango chick crostini. Serve them as part of a delicious Easter lunch spread, or enjoy them as a tasty pre-dinner appetizer or mid-day snack. 

Sprinkle over sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil or honey to taste to make a crispy and flavorful bruschetta everyone will love. You can even add chili or jalapeño if you like your crostini spicy. Feel free to replace the baguette with crackers or even cucumber slices for a quick Easter canapé idea.
