Want some party nibbles that don’t need cooking? These party cracker bites just need to be assembled and in minutes you have a colourful selection of tasty snacks. For the bases you can use crackers, oat cakes or baked-until-crisp thin slices of French bread. They’re best assembled no more than 30 mins before serving otherwise the crackers will start to soften, but if you have the toppings chopped and ready to go they’re very quick to put together. Serve them on black slate boards with a glass of fizz for New Year’s eve or simply serve with a beer as a snack in front of the telly – whatever the occasion everyone will love them.
