- Square crackers (ideally charcoal crackers)
- Black Olives
The crackers I bought are from Peters Yard. I love all the crisp breads they make. I don’t usually choose these black ones, but they were just too perfect for frankenstein canapé heads. If you can’t get them, any square cracker or even toast cut into squares would do.
In the interests of full disclosure, I bought them last year because they claimed 23 calories per packet. The packaging boasts 23 calories per packet….. because there is nothing to them!! They don’t have much flavour and they certainly don’t come even close to filling you up. Maybe 23 packets would.
So as a snack they are abysmal, but luckily as a halloween food styling prop they are fairly versatile. I used scissors to style them up. Cut a small rectangle as wide as the cracker, and about 1/3 as deep, cutting random V shapes on one site to approximate a bad haircut. Obviously 1 hair piece per frankenstein canape.Slivers of olive can be added for the eyes, and a strip of seaweed for the mouth.
