Just a fun way to serve fruit as an appetizer. Made these for my son's birthday party with those sword toothpicks and the kids loved it! You can always use regular toothpicks or make what ever you want that you can line up the fruit. The kids will love helping to make these as well as eating them. Also use whatever fruit you like these are just my family favs.
"Serve these warm and have some slices of a thin French loaf on the side to sop the juices. Also, instead of toothpicks, set out an old fashioned glass filled with pretzel sticks. People get two treats in one, and they don't have to deal with used toothpicks."
This recipe came from Kraft Foods and the photo was so cute. It showed these little "kabobs" made with meatballs, pineapple and peppers on wooden toothpicks. It was adorable! I have not tried them, but wanted to share them with you. The serving number is based on using toothpicks as the skewers, with one meatball, one pineapple chunk and one piece of pepper per toothpick. Hope you enjoy!
A deliciously simple and yet very tasty Spanish Tapas dish. The beauty of this recipe is that is steeps in the wine for 24 hours - making it very easy to plan ahead. Serve in an an attractive earthenware dish and sprinkle with chopped flat leaf parsley. I like to skewer these with toothpicks, to make it easier and less messy to eat! Do try to use very high quality Spanish Chorizo sausage - the cheaper types do not taste nearly as good, and contain a very high fat content.
This is an idea I came up with one St. Patrick's day. I had invited a small army, and was having a heck of a time trying to get through the crowd. I think this was the only time that I can remember that everyone to showed up, plus some. Anyway, I was trying to make an appetizer tray, and I just decided to use those frilly toothpicks and just stick everything on the head of cabbage!It was so beautiful! And, not being one to waste, I cut the cabbage up and cooked it. The dinner was a hit, and I got raves on the appetizer cabbage! The amounts are guesstimated. You can actually just take the idea and make up your own tree. Just put things that you like on it.

Many people here in the US call them 'Taquitos' they are basically corn tortillas rolled up with, in this case chicken. In this recipe I am also putting cheese in them so that the chicken stays in the tortilla when you are frying them.You can fry them in a skillet with about an inch of oil or you can go with a deep fryer which in my opinion much easier and goes faster. But if you don't have a deep fryer simply do it in a deep frying pan and roll the 'flauta' with a fire resistant tongs carefully so you don't splash the oil and burn yourself.I use wooden toothpicks to keep the 'Flautas' closed while frying. Simply place the toothpick on the flap of the tortilla like you would a pin when you are holding two fabrics together when you are going to sew them together.This Flautas are best eaten along with Refried Bean, Rice, and Guacamole. And of course a side salad if you want to eat something not deep fried or refried =PNote: the prep time is not counting the preparation of boiling and shredding your chicken that takes about 45 minutes depending on how much you are making and how long you wait for it to cool down before shredding it.

"Chicken breasts stuffed with soft cheese, wrapped in bacon, and drizzled with honey. Very easy and tastes amazing. I have lost count of the amount of times I have made this. It's a family favourite, and goes very well with either roasted vegetables, such as aubergine, peppers, courgettes, etc., & sauteed potatoes or salad and potato salad."
