Ladybug cake balls
If you want to impress your guests with something decorative and delicious this recipe is for you. Although we won’t blame you if you eat them all by yourself!
300g cookie mix
2 bananas (small)
85g CBD butter
100g powdered sugar
Red food coloring, chocolate chips, cupcake liners
Start with slicing the bananas and juicing the oranges. Use a large bowl for mixing everything together. First mix in the sugar and butter together using a mixer, add the cookie mix and food coloring. Add the bananas and orange juice and mix them in using a spoon. Use an ice cream spoon to make as many small balls as you can and put them in the cupcake liners. When you’re finished add some chocolate chips on the top to get that ladybug look and bake on a low heat for 30 minutes or until firm but springy. These are absolute party favorites that fun and delicious.
Your favorite bread for making bruschetta
3 tomatoes (medium)
Knob of CBD butter
Start with slicing the bread and gently toasting it. Spread the CBD butter over bread. Now prepare the topping. Cut the tomatoes into cubes and strain the juice off. Cut the prosciutto into cubes too and chop some basil. Mix it all together. Now warm your bread in the oven for 5-10 minutes on low heat. When warmed, top the bread with the tomato mix and grate some parmesan on the top. Decorate with basil leafs.
This is a great and easy to make snack for the family.
