The case of disappearing crackers

PF1

You wont believe what happened! I actually witnessed a platter full of appetizing buttery crackers disappear in the blink of an eye. Really, its a true story.

If you like snacking and munching as much as i do, you would know exactly what I’m talking about. These humble yet delicious crackers have a tendency of disappearing real quick. Just cant have one! You know what Im talking about right? Crisp, buttery, flaky and salty with a hint of sweetness. Yes, butter puffs ofcourse.

Over this weekend my brain cells were set in motion and taste buds were activated when i received 2 packs of Peek Freans Butter Puff. I didn’t know Butter Puff came in a veggie flavor too, did you? So with these two half roll packs i was thinking…hmm, that’s interesting (with a smile on my face and ideas running through my head). Ofcourse, the universally loved cheese and cracker pairing is my all time favorite snack. But, trust me you cant stop at that. And If you think you don’t like them much then you are just not eating them right. You’re actually missing out on some seriously addictive stuff.

Butter Puff recently introduced the #14WaysToButterPuff . Which by the way is an awesome source for any foodie looking for some creative party food. So now if you brew me some coffee and give me a pack of these crisp golden Butter Puff crackers, you can count on me to turn them into a delicious party for your tastebuds. Wanna know how? Here’s how:

This is my take on Butter Puff hors d’oeuvres. Feel free to get inspired and create your own delicious treats with the flavors you like. For more inspiration and ideas, do check out the Peek Freans Butter Puff page and get snacking.

WHAT YOU NEED:

For Pizza Bites

  • 1 pack (half-roll) Butter Puff Veggie Crackers
  • Pizza sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Olives

To prepare the pizza bites – Place all the Butter Puff Veggie Crackers on a baking sheet, lined up nicely. Top with a teaspoon of pizza sauce, a pepperoni slice, olives of your choice and then almost a teaspoon of the grated cheese. (I also added a dash of oregano and red chili flakes) Then pop the baking sheet into the oven under the hot broiler. Leave it in for a few minutes, just enough to melt the cheese on top. That’s it, they are done and ready to serve.

For Peanut Butter Treat

  • 1 pack (half-roll) Butter Puff Original Crackers
  • Peanut butter mousse
  • Bananas, sliced
  • chocolate, grated

To prepare the peanut butter treat – Make the peanut butter mousse ahead of time. It keeps well refrigerated for 2-3 days. You can follow the following recipe to make the mousse:

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • a tablespoons of milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a glass bowl, beat heavy cream using any kind of electric beater until it begins to thicken and holds a stiff peak. Refrigerate.
  2. In another bowl add peanut butter and beat until fully. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Add milk and vanilla. Beat until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. Fold in whipped cream, using a spatula. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Once you have the mousse ready, all you have to do is line up the Butter Puff Original Crackers in your serving platter and begin with spooning a heaped teaspoon of the mousse onto it, followed by 2 slices of banana and then sprinkle with grated chocolate. Done.

For Hot Salsa Bites

  • 1 pack (half-roll) Butter Puff Crackers
  • Salsa, homemade or store bought
  • Jalapeno
  • Sour Cream
  • Olives

To prepare the hot salsa bites – You can use any of the 2 Butter Puff flavors. I opted for the Butter Puff Original Crackers since there’s already complex delicious flavors in the salsa topping i used. Make these right before serving by lining them up on the platter. Top with a teaspoon of the salsa (make sure to drain it a bit if its too watery). Then add a single piece of sliced jalapeno for that extra kick, followed by a drizzle of sour cream and then an olive on top. Yum. The adults at your party will be all over it.

Simple stuff but taste so good. So, get the party started and get snacking.

Makes approximately 70 individual bites.

* Not ideal for making ahead of time. Prepare these hors d’oeuvres just before serving. It hardly takes 10-15 minutes so nothing to worry about.

P.S. amidst all this cracking affair i discovered the most amazing stuff. I did, i did. Oh boy, it’s addictive, its sugary and you wont be able to stop gobbling it all up. It’s my new favorite and i want to be selfish and not share. Hmm.

Nahh…don’t worry, the generous me kicked out the selfish me. I’m all about sharing. So stay tuned It’s coming up next and if you have an active sweet tooth, you don’t wanna miss it.

Happy Munching!
