This is a simple DIY project that makes a big visual impact for displaying party treats or bar snacks. Take a piece of clean paper or use nice sturdy decorative wrapping paper. Cut into several sheets of 5″ x 5″. Put a piece of tape along one edge and roll it into a long cone. Try to keep the pointy end of the cone closed.
Use the cones to fill up with tasty bar style snacks. To display the cone filled treats pour into a shallow box uncooked beans or small stones and insert the cones so they will stand up. For a small gathering, use a multi-compartment box much like the Japanese bento box to offer a small mix of bar style snacks.
Cheddar popcorn, herbed almonds, crunchy baked lavash and salted pistachios make a wonderful presentation for guests to nosh with chilled white wine or cold pale ale.
Crunchy Baked Lavash
This is an simple recipe that can be done a day ahead of your event.
- Lavash Bread
- Olive Oil
- Kosher Salt (to taste)
Line a cookie pan with parchment paper. Preheat oven 375º F. Take a piece of lavash and lightly brush both sides with olive oil and place on the pan. Sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt and bake for 5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Check after 2-3 minutes as oven temperatures can vary. Once the lavash is crispy, then remove from the oven and break into pieces. Let cool and serve right away or store in a plastic bag for use later ( good for 2-3 days).
