Try adding cherries (topping ones). They add color and taste too. Great Idea. Thanks. The Cookit Team.

The hedgehog of pineapple and and cheese is so good. What else can I put on toothpicks that's easy and tasty?
You might try mini cooked sausages, pickled silverskin onions, pieces of pepper, celery and pear. It can be nice to make up combinations you really enjoy. The Cookit Team.
