Today I’m sharing a fun little idea that I’ve been making for my children for a while now -savoury tortilla roll-up lollipops! These are so simple to make I can barely call it a recipe, but I think it is a cute party food idea that is worth sharing. These would also be lovely for picnics, for fun lunches at home or for an after school snack – with wholemeal wraps and maybe some colourful vegetables hidden inside, they can be healthy as well as fun and delicious!
Tortilla Roll-Up Lollipops
- wholemeal tortilla wraps
- cream cheese
- pretzel sticks (I found mine in M&S)
Pop a tortilla wrap in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to soften it. Spread cream cheese over one side, spreading it right to the edges of the wrap.
Lay over your fillings – I used ham and lettuce leaves for this one. Fold the sides over as shown below.
Roll the wrap up tightly. Cut into 6 equal pieces. If you want to present them neatly, cut the ends off before dividing them up. Just before serving, push a pretzel stick into the top of each piece to form the lollipop handle.
Present neatly on a plate and enjoy! I made up a second set with ham, houmous and cheese to create a contrasting flavour – don’t they look pretty! You could use any fillings that you like – I find wraps are a great place to hide all sorts of vegetables (leafy salad for example!) that my children wouldn’t normally be keen on eating otherwise.
If you wanted to pack these in a lunch box, pack the tortilla spirals and pretzel sticks separately, otherwise the pretzel sticks may go a little soggy by the time lunch time arrives (or just skip the sticks altogether). The same if you’re serving at a party – you can prepare the tortilla spirals in advance but don’t add the pretzel sticks until just before serving.
