This is a great way to get the kids to eat healthy snacks over Christmas.
Santa Board Ingredients
The Santa Board is easy to build. You will need the following ingredients:
450g plain hummus
a few large pitted black olives, divided
30 cherry tomatoes, divided
3 large red peppers, cut into strips, reserving ½ top of a pepper
225g fresh mini mozzarella balls, drained and patted dry
340g cauliflower florets
340g broccoli florets
You will need a 20×13-inch board with a lip, or a platter to make the Santa Board.
Evenly spread the hummus onto a round white plate with a lip around the edge. Place the plate in the center of a large wood board or platter.
Press 2 large black olives for Santa’s eyes, a cherry tomato for his nose, and the ½ top of a bell pepper for his smile onto the hummus.
Layer the red bell pepper strips, starting from the top of the plate up to the top-right corner of the board to look like Santa’s hat.
Add a line of mini mozzarella balls to the top edge of the plate and a small pile of mini mozzarella balls to decorate the top of Santa’s hat.
Arrange the cauliflower for Santa’s beard, mustache, and eyebrows.
Place the remaining black olives, except for one, at the bottom of the board, around the cauliflower beard to look like Santa’s belt. Stack 3 club crackers at the very bottom center of the board with the remaining large black olive cut in half and the halves pressed together in the center of the top cracker to look like Santa’s belt buckle.
Divide the remaining cherry tomatoes on either side of Santa’s cauliflower beard, filling in from the olives up to the middle of the board.
Add the broccoli to the top left of the board and fan the club crackers along the right sight of the board.
The Santa Board can be made several hours in advance before serving, just wait to add the crackers. Cover with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge.
