A crazy name I know but these are some of the easiest delights you can make. So satisfying and so simple, the whole family will love these. We serve these on the buffet alongside a variety of meat dishes as well as a great snack as part of our afternoon tea offer. Try serving these instead of chips or mashed potato or just as a great snack.
