Prep Time: 40 min.

Surprise your family and friends with this delightfully cheesy Snowman appetizer. Best of all, he doesn’t melt.

What you need


1. Dry off the mozzarella balls on a piece of kitchen towel.

2. Place one ball on top of the other and secure with a toothpick so it can stand upright.

3. Peel a 10 cm (4 inches) long piece of cucumber and slice it in half around the middle.

4. Stick the halves in between the mozzarella to make the scarf.

5. Cut a thin slice of cucumber for the base of the hat.

6. You’ll need a 2 cm thick (¾ inch) piece of cucumber to make the top of the hat. Use the round cookie cutter for the cutout. Secure the hat with a toothpick.

7. Peel and slice a carrot lengthwise.

8. Trim the slice into two equal-sized skis.

9. Place these underneath the snowman.

10. Cut a small rectangular piece of carrot for the nose.

11. Halve an olive and use the metal straw to cutout eyes and buttons.

12. Lastly, you’ll need a tiny strip of cucumber peel for the mouth.

13. Serve on a platter with fresh baguette or crackers.
