This recipe was sent to me by my mum,who thought that her beloved grandchildren might enjoy them! The first time I made them they didn't even get a chance to go cold,as the children and I devoured them.I have since made them to take to our local playgroup end of term party,and once again,children and parents alike loved them.They are so simple and delicious,and a great way to get some extra veggies into your children.Perfect for picnics and lunchbags.I often pack a few in a tub for when we go shopping for child friendly snacks.I should imagine that these would be good served warm with pre dinner drinks or as part of a finger buffet.
