INGREDIENTS (makes 4)

4 plain rice cakes

4 tbsp peanut butter (use cream cheese as an alternative)

½ carrot, thinly sliced then trimmed into triangles or rounds for ears

2 slices of cheese for cheeks

½ cucumber, thinly sliced lengthways for whiskers

8 dried cranberries, for eyes

4 raisins, for nose 

Spread each rice cake with peanut butter. Using a small pastry cutter or small glass, cut the cheese slices into eight circles for the cheeks. Place the carrot and cheese circles onto the peanut butter.

Arrange the cucumber pieces, cranberries and raisins to make the face. Serve as an afternoon treat or pack into  lunchboxes.
