Halloween Canapes; Pumpkin shaped cheese and crackers
Last week the Uk was shocked with the news that following a pricing dispute with its suppliers, Tesco announced that it would no longer be selling Marmite. Cue mass hysteria. This did make me reach for my
10 year supply jar of marmite. Halloween just round the corner, these halloween canapes are the perfect love child of mature cheese and marmite.
- Red Leicester (or mature cheddar)
- Round Crackers
To make your life as easy as possible, buy ready sliced cheese. Use your favourite. I chose red leicester mainly for its very orange colour. This jar of marmite was given to me by a friend a couple of centuries ago, and its still going strong.
Select a round cutter as close in size as possible to your cracker size. Cut out the cheese. Take a sharp knife and cut little pumpkin like shapes in the cheese. Of course nibble the off cuts. Spread a thin layer of marmite on the crackers. And plonk the cheese over the marmite.An easy little 5 minute snack. Hopefully these halloween canapes will get you in the halloween mood. If you don’t like marmite, a dark chutney or finely chopped branston pickle would work just as well.
