  • 10 small savoury crackers (I used Ritz)
  • 2 ham slices
  • 2 cheddar cheese slices


  • Lay out the crackers on a plate or platter.
  • Using a circle cutter the same size or slightly smaller than the crackers, cut out rounds of ham and pop one on top of each cracker. I used the crinkle side of the cutter to make them a little more decorative.
  • Cut shapes from the cheese using festive themed mini cutters (I used snowflakes, stars, gingerbread men and snowmen) and pop them on top of the ham.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!


This snack is also fun one to pack in a lunch box for children to assemble themselves - just cut out the ham and cheese shapes and pack in separate compartments along with the crackers and some fresh fruit and veg on the side.
