Well, this are probably the easiest snack to prepare on this planet! ย In fact it all could even be less time consuming if the toppings are all prepared before hand ๐Ÿ™‚ .

I am known for doing this snack. ย It goes down well with friends and family and I am always asked to please do my ‘fancy biscuit things’…Yeah, inevitably that is what they are called….I mean, how easy is it …the main thing is cream cheese! ย at least say ‘the cream cheese biscuit things’, then I will know, and not have to rack my brain so much…only kidding the brain doesn’t get racked, but you know what I mean. ย It is likeuse your words !!!

Anyway, so I was all amped up to kick off the New Year all healthy and stuff….well, it didn’t happen :-(. Never mind, now I just have to work even harder as of Monday…I really am a glutton for punishment.

So before I get all healthy on you, I must give you this quick and easy Cream Cheese Snack. ย These snacks are devoured on Salticrax biscuits. ย Then, the cream cheese…if you want, get the healthier version being low-fat cream cheese, both taste great. ย Then, the toppings, well you can go crazy with these and really do any topping you want. ย I mainly use fresh chives, dry toasted seeds and freshly ground pepper, I also have used toasted nuts, chopped, pink pepper corns freshly ground and a range of fresh herbs…all are equally as good ๐Ÿ™‚ .

NB* ย When dry toasting seeds and nuts, do not add any oil to the pan, as seeds and nuts have their own natural oils. ย Keep tossing the seeds or nuts in the pan to avoid burning. ย Watch them carefully when they are on the stove as they will burn if unattended.
